Our mission
To Empower clinicians with the tools to break down barriers to patient-centred care.

Company Information
Hypercare is a health-tech company located in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, that helps clinical teams coordinate patient care seamlessly and effectively. With the fast-paced environment in hospitals, clinicians are bombarded with dozens of pages per hour on the busiest services. Outdated methods of communication tethers clinicians to phones waiting for a page or waiting on hold while trying to get to the right person. Hypercare reclaims this time, allowing clinicians to spend more time at the bedside. Our solution has been adopted by clinical teams in more than 80 healthcare systems in North America from small community teams to entire hospitals with thousands of users. We are backed by incredible venture capitalists such as Wavemaker360 (Healthcare VC in Los Angeles, CA), FootHill Ventures (Los Altos, CA), Ramen Ventures (former Shopify executives), and Tom Williams (one of the most prolific angel investors). We also partnered with the largest telecom in Canada, Rogers telecommunications.
