Understanding the on-the-ground needs of our clients’ clinical teams is a key success factor. It enables us to determine the best approach for implementing our clinical solutions, while ensuring user-friendliness, which facilitates clinicians’ operation of our platform. Computerization of the clinical field has always been a major challenge. To date, more than 2,500 multidisciplinary clinicians use our clinical documentation module and more than 15,000 refer to our clinical practice guides and decision support module… so I think we can say we’ve succeeded!

Our world is characterized more and more by technological innovation. I like to think that we’re helping to make the human aspect more important in the human-machine interface expression. In this world where innovation sometimes seems to be about finding a problem to solve, we develop a technology that allows for much more human, natural, intuitive and personal interactions with all of our electronic devices.

In 2016, for the first time in Quebec, 51% of IT jobs were not in specialized companies like ours, but in traditional businesses such as insurance companies and banks. In fact, Industrial Alliance told La Presse again this week that one out of every five jobs in their company is in IT. So it’s imperative to react to this phenomenon, which will only accelerate.

Alithya, a Quebec-based digital strategy and technology consulting company, supports its customers in their 4.0 transformation, more precisely by upgrading their systems in order to digitally optimize their activities.

With our technology, patients whose files need to be reviewed in priority are automatically identified by an alert score. The higher the score, the more important it is to review the file, because the chances of success of an intervention are that much higher. Rather than reviewing all 200 patients who receive antibiotics, the pharmacist looks at around forty, using a strategy supported by software that gathers all the information required for a good review of the file.
– Vincent Nault, President, LUMED

LUMED, a software development company dedicated to improving hospital care, was born in Sherbrooke in 2012. It started a few years earlier as part of a research project on the optimal use of antibiotics to treat infectious diseases, particularly by avoiding their overuse.

The wide range of medical and computer skills of the three founders Louis Valiquette, Mathieu Beaudoin and Vincent Nault, has led to the design of the world’s most effective antibiotic stewardship system: the subject of various publications, widely recognized by pharmacists and infectious disease specialists, and winner of several awards for innovation.

To succeed, you have to know how to deal with whatever is thrown at you. If you react well, with a glass-half-full attitude, you’ll always see the opportunity in front of you. I understand this even more today, with being more focussed on strategic efforts and less on operations. Outlook and philosophy make all the difference.

Squeeze dreamed of animating all styles of characters, from very cartoonish to very realistic. We wanted to offer our know-how to elite global partners.
