TECHNATION has announced the winners of the 2022 TECHNATION Ingenious Awards and a Calgary startup was acknowledged for their use of AI for real impact.
TECHNATION’s Ingenious Awards celebrate Canada’s vibrant innovation ecosystem showcasing the use of technology from organizations using Artificial Intelligence (AI), Blockchain, Cloud and Internet of Things (IoT) to transform operations.
Calgary’s Alethea Medical was recognized in the AI category for their work with diagnostic artificial intelligence.
Built for Family Physicians, Alethea’s eConsult platform provides doctors with AI predictive support for ear, nose, throat, and dermatology conditions, as well as seamless eConsultation for expedited specialist communication.
Alethea was founded by Dr. Devon Livingstone, an Otolaryngologist in Calgary. While starting his practice, he saw firsthand the negative implications that long waitlists have on patient care. Devon was motivated to create a solution that would help resolve long wait times and get patients faster access to care.
The TECHNATION Ingenious winners were announced as part of the CIO’s Future of Digital Innovation Summit & Awards Canada hosted by IDC Canada.
TECHNATION was formerly the Information Technology Association of Canada (ITAC).
