Satori Health is changing how healthcare is delivered by addressing the root causes of the system’s dysfunction; practitioner burnout, siloed expertise and reactive care.

By assigning patients a Health Plan Coordinator (HPC) - responsible for providing them with guidance, continued connection and proactive support – they are greatly improving the patient experience.

Cherry Health has partnered with Ava to bring you a hyper-modern EMR system that is both better and more economical than your current provider.

As clinicians we spend much of our day writing or reviewing patient chart information so any deficiencies in speed, function or cost get multiplied across our whole team. After far too much wasted time and resources, two Albertan physicians, Dr Forseth and Dr Henschke, took matters into their own hands to create a next generation EMR that is guaranteed to improve your team’s efficiency while reducing your operating costs.

The care plan template is in all provincial EMRs and auto populates in some sections from a patient’s chart. 

Eligible patients are identified for physicians from their panels.

There are funds of $5,500 to support this work, funds are paid directly to physicians as a one-time payment.

Meet the Birdie Break founders

Melanie Swerdan
Co-Founder - Director of Creative & Sitter Recruitment
Melanie is an entrepreneurial-minded problem solver, dedicated to ingenuity and creative thinking.  After a serendipitous brainstorming session at the Edmonton Folk Fest with her close friends Cressida and Amber, the concept for Birdie Break developed wings. Birdie was created to "give parents a break," connecting families and sitters beyond traditional avenues. She feels it's quite remarkable how mobile apps have the ability to bring people together, create a sharing culture, and conveniently fulfill a wide range of needs. 

Melanie serves as Director of Creative & Recruitment, having developed roots among artistic pursuits including photography, costume design, camera operating and restaurant development.   She is an established music photographer shooting for the likes of Billy Ray Cyrus, Elle King, Kygo, Matt Mays, City & Colour, LP, Portugal the Man, The Kooks and The Heavy to name a few.  In the last 3 years she’s also co-conceptualized and co-designed a couple restaurants in Edmonton, Alberta – El Cortez Mexican Kitchen & Tequila Bar and Have Mercy Table + Bar.

Melanie is a buoyant, fun, and nurturing auntie.  Having previously been a nanny herself, her standards for recruitment are high!

She hopes Birdie will positively touch many lives - sitters, parents and the most special of all, the little ones!

Cressida Raffin
Co-Founder - CEO
As a busy mom to two boys and an entrepreneur, Cressida fully understands the importance of having access to high-quality childcare and recognizes it as a challenge for so many parents. Whether childcare is needed in order to work from home uninterrupted, to reconnect with her husband and friends or just for some solo time, the ability to trust the providers she uses is paramount in helping her find some semblance of balance in her life!  She is passionate about Birdie being the solution to this problem for other parents in the same conundrum and is committed to working hard in order to make it a service that people can rely on to help them with their childcare needs.

Cressida has spent the last 10+ years in the marketing and event coordination world after having graduated with her Bachelor of Commerce with Distinction from the University of Alberta. She is happiest when she finds projects that blend her business acumen with her creative soul and entrepreneurial spirit.

In addition to her scholarly education, she has also spent years traveling and living abroad which provided her with a unique perspective on life and helped foster another type of understanding and passion for the world. This blend of career and exploration has solidified her belief in the importance of balance in life as the path to happiness and fulfillment. Something that she hopes Birdie will offer to all parents out there who need

Hear From Our Members

"Before Charting Champions, it was common for me to chart for 2 hours after my work-day. It was also common for me to bring charting home at the end of my work-week. Most days, now, my charting is done in the moment. I finish the chart before I go to the next patient. I still get lots of interruptions, but I feel comfortable finishing my chart before acting on most requests."

Dr. Jessica Valentine
Family Medicine

"My life before Charting Champions, I was spending more hours at work or home charting, more time spent making decisions and ruminating about past decisions. Now, I make decisions more confidently. I have practiced and overcome the discomfort of charting "perfectly" and am now able to chart as soon as possible, in real time as possible, and keep seeing patients, with a clearer and more present mind."

Dr. JC
 ER Physician, USA

" to starting the program, I felt that my work life was always just on the brink of being out of control. I felt that I didn't have enough time for my home life. After joining the program, I feel more organized at work with a plan for most days. I am closing most of my charts at the end of each visit, and all shortly after the end of each clinic. I still find my inbox to be a challenge, and I struggle to keep on top of emails and academic work. I do still wish to have more time to spend with my family."

Dr. J
Endocrinologist, Edmonton, Alberta, CA

"Before the program, I was living in a state of dread…. I couldn’t be fully present to my family or myself outside of work. Now, I can put boundaries around me to protect my time and my charting and I can be flexible…. Without judging myself! Even changing to telemedicine, I’m still learning how to finish the various inboxes and slack messages."

Dr Ely Bueno
Family Physician, USA

Professional Designations

Unified Health Data in One Place
Managing patient health data flows promoting health care delivery.

Seamless Collaboration Effortless sharing of patient health data allows various healthcare practitioners to collaborate more effectively and develop holistic treatment plans tailored to specific needs.

Aggregated Data
Aggregated data from multiple patients can be analyzed to identify trends, treatment efficiency, and potential areas for improvement.

One Platform, 3 Core Functions 

Waitlist and Vacancy Management
Where there are significant waitlists and resource scarcity, technology can be used to optimize the time these scarce resources are empty.  

Access and Navigation
When there are complex referral processes in place, clinicians often struggle to know where to refer to. Technology can manage this through matching, central intake, and clinical decision support.

Central Intake
Central intakes streamline care intake by using technology to process, validate, and triage service referrals, ensuring fairness and transparency.

Benefits:

Enhanced Efficiency

Streamlining processes and automation reduces administrative burdens, freeing up valuable time to focus on patient care.  

Informed Decision Support

Intelligent matching and analytics empower informed care decisions and optimize care delivery, leading to improved patient outcomes.

Faster Transitions

Complete data provides clear insight into providers and services, simplifying navigation and facilitating safe transitions, without delay.

Seamless Coordination
Secure communication tools facilitate seamless collaboration among care providers, enhancing the overall patient experience

Siloed Health Data: Currently, health data in Canada is not easily shared among practitioners, leading to a lack of patient history awareness in Walk-In clinics, Emergency Departments, and Telehealth appointments.

Simplified through Wave:
Collect, organize, connect, and share data efficiently across EMRs and relevant data systems through Wave.

Operational Efficiency: Wave enhances operational efficiency by allowing seamless access, sharing and organization of patient data, supporting productive collaboration among care teams.

Patient-Focused: Sharing data through Wave eliminates the burden of data management tasks, allowing patients to better manage themselves and physicians to dedicate more time to their patients.

Hear What Clinics Using Ava Have to Say

"Ava is exactly what I had been looking for. Imagine an EMR designed for doctors by doctors who know what we do all day! The migration process was smooth and the ease with which all the doctors learnt how to use the system made switching easy."

Urfi Sulaiman
Care Market Mall and Care Sage Hill

“Ava is a special platform with strong leadership throughout. I speak for our entire administrative team and group of specialists in saying AVA is a must have for top tier EMR for any clinic looking to succeed within the future of medicine."

Eric Blum
Sleep & Wake Clinic

We were previously using a separate service for secure patient messaging and online appointment bookings. Ava integrated all of these features into a single platform, and made it easy to migrate a decade’s worth of patient records into their platform. We wouldn’t hesitate to switch to Ava again."

Step 1: Mortgage Pre-Approval
Pre-approval gives you and your realtor more defined search parameters; you’ll know what you should be looking for and what kind of interest rate to expect. This should help you build a budget, and protect you if interest rates increase while you’re house hunting.

Step 2: Offers & Negotiations
Once you’ve found the right home, your realtor springs into action. This is where Mortgage Connection turns your pre-approval into an approval. We’ll help you select the right mortgage option and get all paperwork approved and signed off.

Step 3: Closing the Deal
Your real estate lawyer will take your down payment, register mortgage charges on title, request mortgage funds, disburse funds to the seller’s lawyer and change ownership of the property over to you!

Our Simplified Commercial Mortgage Process

Step 1: Request Documents & Information
Documents and Information is requested from you via email, with an outline of timeline and an approximation of costs that can be expected for your commercial mortgage request.

Step 2: Terms Sheets are Presented to You
Term sheet(s) and/or an overview of options are presented to You.

Step 3: Due Diligence Reports are Ordered
Due diligence reports are ordered and lender application fees are paid. This is typically your first cost outlay, relating to your financing request.

Step 4: Final Commitment Letter
Final commitment letter is received and funding is completed. We are paid our broker fee at this very last stage of the process (upon funding).

Discretionary Portfolio Management

As discretionary portfolio managers, we actively manage your portfolio in accordance with your IPS, making investment decisions on your behalf. This allows you to focus on your profession and family, while we ensure your financial portfolio is on the right trajectory and aligning with your goals. The value of our service lies in this freedom - we offer you the opportunity to devote your time to your medical practice and loved ones, confident in the knowledge your financial future is in trusted hands.

As physicians, you are well aware of the importance of providing a fiduciary standard of care to your patients. Similarly, at Moraine Wealth Advisory, we operate under the fiduciary standard when working with our clients. This means that we have a legal and ethical obligation to act in your best interests at all times. This is in contrast to the suitability standard of care, which is followed by many other financial advisors.

Under this standard, advisors are only required to recommend products that are suitable for their clients' needs, but not necessarily in their best interests. This can lead to conflicts of interest and potentially harmful investment decisions.

By choosing Moraine Wealth Advisory as your trusted financial partner, you can have peace of mind knowing that we always have your best interests at heart. We are committed to providing transparent and unbiased advice, putting your needs first in all aspects of our services. 

Trust

Our advice and recommendations are always made with our client's interests first.

Communication & Reporting

Connect with other rural physicians for sucess.

We Are Investors

It's important to us that we have alignment with our clients, as a result we invest in the same strategies that we recommend.

Integrity

We are driven by honesty and a strong moral compass.

"I've had the pleasure of being a client of Sean's as he's transitioned in his advisory career to founding Moraine Wealth Advisory. Sean is an honest and transparent financial partner. He truly cares about his clients (and their family, community and interests) and their net results. He also tells it like it is - you're never left guessing, and he'll carefully advise on decisions. The tools Sean uses for Financial Planning are precise, and reflect everything you need to know and understand about your investments. This includes projections for earnings, interest, capital growth, expenses, taxes, etc. As I draw near to my full retirement, I know exactly where I stand now and where I'll be in 20-30 years. The confidence Sean's 'radical care' practice provides, is second to none. It was 15 years ago, and it's even greater today."

Once the clinic is up and running, physicians and staff work in close collaboration with the pharmacy team, providing true team-based care, focused on improving patient outcomes and experience.”

It's a level of teamwork that inspires confidence and trust in the entire healthcare process. The pharmacists here are more than just professionals; they are attentive listeners and knowledgeable advisors and with the collaboration with our physicians – they set a gold standard in the industry. They are not merely dispensers of medications; they are guardians of health, guiding patients through their journey to wellness with care, expertise, and have a genuine desire to make a positive difference in their lives."

Extensive Tenant Base, Enduring Partnerships

Nearly 1,000 tenants and an estimated 5,000 individual healthcare professionals work in a Northwest building, creating vibrant tenant communities throughout our portfolio of properties. Whether we’re working with a solo practitioner in a 500-square-foot space or a hospital tenant leasing an entire building, we believe that partnerships rooted in genuine relationships can create meaningful impact. Northwest is driven by an unwavering commitment to delivering tenant-focused solutions that nurture and grow the dynamic healthcare ecosystems that thrive in our buildings.

Tenant Testimonials

"Working with our Leasing Manager, we found the rental experience to be both positive and collaborative. Upon our most recent renewal in
2019, Northwest was receptive to our specific requests to improve our suite. I found they listened to our concerns, helped assess our needs and worked with us to find a balanced agreement. They have professional and experienced staff and I would consider myself a satisfied tenant."

Dr. Ilango Thirumoorthi
Family Physician, Hamilton Family Health Team

"I like working with NorthWest Healthcare Properties because they really listen to the feedback from their tenants. If I need to submit a work order, I can do so online through the work order system which is really convenient and easy to use. In general, I find NorthWest very easy to deal with, and their response time to work orders or questions and concerns is always handled in a timely manner."

Michele Boyce
Clinic Manager, Toronto Dermatology Centre

"Joining NorthWest’s Barrie Primary Care Campus is ideal for my practice to keep a lot of family medicine services centralized in one building. I think that having the [Barrie & Community] Family Health Team departments in one location provides for easier access and the ability to see several medical professionals all in the same day. I often
interact with the Family Health Team administrative offices, and having my practice in the same building allows for improved efficiencies."

Dr. Hendrey Kolesky
Family Physician, Barrie and Community Family Health Team

"Northwest was one-stop shopping for our medical office. They provided everything and everyone needed to identify an appropriate space, design, and build-out an office to our specifications. They quickly resolved any issues as they arose, even securing additional tradespeople on short notice over the holiday period. Northwest delivered on their promises — we were in our new office seeing patients earlier than expected, and on budget. Our office looks forward to continuing our relationship with Northwest."

Hear from our partnering physicians

"FoamaDerm is an excellent topical product and diclofenac in FoamaDerm provides great pain relief! The FoamaDerm which is the vehicle containing/transporting drugs like diclofenac, spreads very easily, is very well absorbed, and is aesthetically very pleasing. FoamaDerm is non-greasy and seems to provide more effective pain relief when compared to other drug vehicles like PLO which is greasy, sticky and typically leads to non-compliance and of course zero pain relief. Again, this is an excellent product and I have recommended it to many of my patients and their feedback has been very positive. "

Giovanni, Pharmacist
Sudbury, Ontario

"As a family physician with a Pediatric focused practice I have been using 2% Diclofenac Q in FoamaDerm for the past 2 years plus.

I have found it very effective in soft tissue injuries. I have also prescribed it for children with fractures and have been impressed by the much reduced usage of oral analgesics in these patients. It certainly is helpful in getting them to mobilize earlier.

I particularly like that the product is mostly odorless and not messy to apply. Thank you for developing such an effective and safe alternative to oral anti-inflammatory drugs and also to oral analgesics. "

Dr. W, Family Physician
Ottawa, Ontario

“The product is a clear, non-sticky and non-greasy liquid, dispensed in an elegant foam container. Anti-inflammatory, such as diclofenac and ketoprofen, can fully dissolve in it. It is extremely simple to use. There is no need to levigate or triturate. Just add and shake. I also feel reassured that my patients are getting a product that has been tested against other transdermal creams and demonstrated significantly better absorption."

Physician Testimonials

"Adding PrescribeIT functionality has been a huge benefit for our practice...  streamlining prescription management helps patients, staff and Physicians. From less paper, to less faxing and scanning, to fewer sticky notes on the desk corner, to the ease of a quick refill from your computer wherever you are working that day. It also streamlines communication back to the pharmacy in the case of questions - which means fewer phone calls to interrupt the day. I wish I had added this function to our system years ago."

Dr. Richard Martin
Family Medicine Associates Grande Prairie

"PrescribeIT has undoubtedly transformed the way I manage prescriptions and renew medications. Its user-friendly interface, effortless prescription management, simplified renewal process and enhanced accessibility, make it an outstanding application. I am happy to use PrescribeIT, as it has made my work significantly easier and more convenient."

Dr. Ibrahim Shebani

Melanie Swerdan
Co-Founder - Director of Creative & Sitter Recruitment
Melanie is an entrepreneurial-minded problem solver, dedicated to ingenuity and creative thinking.  After a serendipitous brainstorming session at the Edmonton Folk Fest with her close friends Cressida and Amber, the concept for Birdie Break developed wings. Birdie was created to "give parents a break," connecting families and sitters beyond traditional avenues. She feels it's quite remarkable how mobile apps have the ability to bring people together, create a sharing culture, and conveniently fulfill a wide range of needs. 

Melanie serves as Director of Creative & Recruitment, having developed roots among artistic pursuits including photography, costume design, camera operating and restaurant development.   She is an established music photographer shooting for the likes of Billy Ray Cyrus, Elle King, Kygo, Matt Mays, City & Colour, LP, Portugal the Man, The Kooks and The Heavy to name a few.  In the last 3 years she’s also co-conceptualized and co-designed a couple restaurants in Edmonton, Alberta – El Cortez Mexican Kitchen & Tequila Bar and Have Mercy Table + Bar.

Melanie is a buoyant, fun, and nurturing auntie.  Having previously been a nanny herself, her standards for recruitment are high!

She hopes Birdie will positively touch many lives - sitters, parents and the most special of all, the little ones!

Cressida Raffin
Co-Founder - CEO
As a busy mom to two boys and an entrepreneur, Cressida fully understands the importance of having access to high-quality childcare and recognizes it as a challenge for so many parents. Whether childcare is needed in order to work from home uninterrupted, to reconnect with her husband and friends or just for some solo time, the ability to trust the providers she uses is paramount in helping her find some semblance of balance in her life!  She is passionate about Birdie being the solution to this problem for other parents in the same conundrum and is committed to working hard in order to make it a service that people can rely on to help them with their childcare needs.

Cressida has spent the last 10+ years in the marketing and event coordination world after having graduated with her Bachelor of Commerce with Distinction from the University of Alberta. She is happiest when she finds projects that blend her business acumen with her creative soul and entrepreneurial spirit.

In addition to her scholarly education, she has also spent years traveling and living abroad which provided her with a unique perspective on life and helped foster another type of understanding and passion for the world. This blend of career and exploration has solidified her belief in the importance of balance in life as the path to happiness and fulfillment. Something that she hopes Birdie will offer to all parents out there who need

"When patients ask me to refer them to professionals with specific areas of expertise, I’m grateful that I have Refer To Me to quickly and easily find them someone."

Meet the Founder

Sara DimermanSara Dimerman is the founder of ReferToMe.ca. She is a psychologist and a member of the College of Psychologists of Ontario. She has worked with individuals, couples and families for more than 30 years. Since the pandemic began, Sara has noticed a marked increase in the number of people looking for help with their mental health needs.

Unfortunately, because her practice often can't accommodate everyone, she has to put clients on a wait list or deny service. Often she will refer out to her colleagues but many of them too have closed practices. So, she thought that if she could create a directory of healthcare professionals referring to one another as needed, people wouldn't wait as long to receive service and healthcare professionals would have an easy and effective way to find others to help their potential client or patient, rather than putting them on a long waitlist.
