Connections at The Clinic

November 15 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm


Hear from health entrepreneurs about their journeys and network with others interested in health innovation

About this event

If you are currently working on an innovative idea or are just curious about entrepreneurship in the healthcare & life sciences sector, you are welcome to attend our monthly Connections @ The Clinic sessions to hear from Hamilton-based entrepreneurs and connect with other health innovators. Our next session will be from 2:30-3:30 pm on November 15th, 2022. These sessions will be hosted by Lianna Genovese, CEO of ImaginAble Solutions Inc., who will be joined by Ron Galaev, CEO & founder of EmergConnect Inc. The format of the sessions are an informal panel-style discussion with opportunities for attendees to ask questions of the entrepreneurs, with an open time for Q&A at the end of the session. Please join us for networking between 2-2:30 pm, at which point the panel discussion will begin.

About the guest entrepreneur:

Ron Galaev is a recent graduate of McMaster’s Biomedical Discovery and Commercialization program and graduate of The Clinic’s Residency Program. EmergConnect has created a first of its kind patient-facing mobile platform that acts as a digital ‘front door’ for patient’s seeking same day care. EmergConnect allows patients to register, meaningfully triage, get an individualized prediction of their wait time at home before arriving at the ED of their choice while being directed to the care that best suits their needs. EmergConnect is currently working with Sunnybrook Health Sciences, St. Josephs Healthcare Hamilton, and William Osler Health System.
