MONTREAL, Nov. 27, 2019 /CNW Telbec/ - Cardiologist and patient safety advocate, Dr. Robert Amyot, is joining the MEDFAR Clinical Solutions executive team as Chief Medical Officer, at a time when the company is expanding its presence across Canada and internationally. By welcoming an experienced practitioner and manager aboard, MEDFAR, already a leader in Quebec in the field of electronic medical records, is further reinforcing the strength of its executive team.
"Having rapidly gained the trust of over 6000 healthcare providers and more than 1000 clinics across Canada, Latin America, Europe and Asia, it was the ideal time to welcome Dr Amyot. His valuable expertise in patient safety and broader perspective on the protection of medical data will allow us to pursue our international expansion while remaining true to MEDFAR's values." said Elias Farah, co-founder and CEO of MEDFAR.
A cardiologist by training, Dr. Amyot was a researcher and Associate Professor of Medicine at the Université de Montréal, where he taught clinical cardiology and echocardiography. An entrepreneur at heart, Dr. Amyot also founded the company Vimedix, which developed the first ever virtual reality transthoracic echocardiography simulator, and whose first client was a Harvard University affiliated hospital.
Following the acquisition of Vimedix by the multinational company CAE, Dr. Amyot joined the management team of the CAE Healthcare division where he worked for nearly 10 years, serving as Chief Medical Officer, and then as President. In 2018, he was inducted into the Simulation Hall of Fame of the National Center for Simulation in the US. He sits on several boards of directors, including the board of the Royal College International, affiliated with the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
