Telmediq solves fundamental challenges, risks, and financial costs associated with poor communications often found in healthcare organizations. Our products include pager replacement, medical answering services, and clinically integrated secure messaging. Medical organizations use our solutions to streamline communications while improving patient experience and safety.
Ben’s primary focus at Telmediq is driving product innovation, establishing market strategy, and building a high performing team. Ben has played key management roles in two high growth technology success stories (Desire2Learn and Redknee) acting in product, business, and team leadership positions. Ben has authored patents in location-based emergency messaging.
In early 2012, after talking to several healthcare institutions about their current ‘Page and Pray’ communications methods, Ben learned that there was an opportunity to dramatically improve healthcare communications and ultimately patient outcomes. Telmediq was created and Ben worked closely with several well-respected groups of US healthcare institutions to launch the service.
Ben holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Systems Engineering from the University of Waterloo, and a Degree in Pragmatic Product Management.
