He is a family practice and emergency medicine physician with over 20 years of experience and has become well versed in clinical leadership and in comprehensive and integrative patient care. He has worked in diverse health care environments and served in a variety of roles, including Rural Family Practitioner, Chief of Staff of Emergency Medicine in Southampton Ontario, and Chief Medical Director of The Toronto Clinic, a corporate executive health care clinic in Toronto, Ontario. He possesses deep knowledge and insight into the broad scope of issues affecting healthcare, ranging from the allocation of emergency services and resources to technology and the digitization of medicine. Dr. Burkhart is a graduate of the College of Family Physicians of Canada and is licensed and in good standing with The College of Physicians and Surgeons of Ontario and British Columbia.
Company CEO Antonio Baldasarre notes, “We are delighted to have Dr. Burkhart join with us at this critical juncture of our enterprise. We have a very busy agenda ahead and I can state plainly that we sincerely appreciate his interest and passion for the advancement of modern telehealth solutions. His efforts within the medical profession, intergovernmental relations, and past commercial experiences in the sector ideally position him as a major asset to our team. We look forward to working together to help unlock the value of telehealth in what we view as perhaps the most important adjunct to public healthcare in decades.”
