VeroSource Solutions Inc.
VeroSource Solutions Inc. is dedicated to improving the lives of its customers through data analysis and communications. With a specific focus on improving patient outcomes in the public health sector, VeroSource has developed a number of products aimed at increasing the efficiency of health care delivery on a large scale.

What fuels you?

I want to empower people and unlock the potential in Canadian health care. There are so many opportunities for improvements in our system, we can make a real difference in people’s lives.

What are you most proud of?

I am proud of the way the VeroSource team has stepped up during the COVID-19 pandemic. With the challenges of the new norm, new stress levels and the unknown, our team locked in and delivered impactful solutions in two provinces over just a few months.

What has COVID-19 taught you personally and professionally?

Personally:  I love my family and spending time with them, but there are limits. Getting to the office is a luxury.

Professionally:  The norm isn’t as important as we may have thought previously. Necessity has pushed us out of our comfort zones, and we have seen innovation that has been given a chance to flourish. I do not think we will go back to the way it was even when a vaccine is available.
