“Since you have 24/7 support from intensivists you’re way ahead of the HA on delivering expertise to rural physicians who may not typically deal with certain procedures, etc., and can benefit from urgent real-time support or when they need general internal medicine questions answered.”

“My overall experience was fantastic. I think an extra set of eyes and ears in the room was definitely helpful. My fission colleagues are also happy for the support.”
Joshua Greggain MD, CCFP, Hope
“In an isolated community with limited resources, this access and immediate advice is absolutely priceless. It not only allows us to provide excellent service to our patients but also allows our rural physicians peace of mind in having support and guidance in situations which occur sometimes infrequently in small communities. After our experiences with CODI, I wonder how we could ever go without it.”
Rena Romain Physician, Fraser Lake
“Timely and ideal situation as the intensivist was not busy with something else. Targeted meds in a very high equity case not for treatment only but prevention of complications too administered. Brilliantly satisfying experience.”
Herman Keyter Physician, Valemount
“CODI defines what is now standard of care.”
