Canadian Health Matters was founded in 2010. CHM’s mission is to provide easily accessed, pertinent medical information to emergency responders and medical workers when you cannot respond in an emergency situation.

CHM’s Birthplace

Founding partners, Ryan Farrell and Alain Bussiere, began building CHM after witnessing a medical emergency involving one of Farrell’s family members. Working as a first responder in Northern Ontario, Farrell, believed there had to be a better way to inform paramedics and emergency room staff of a patient’s pertinent medical information during an emergency. After a year of research and development Canadian Health Matters was born.
