MediResource started in 1996 as a pioneer in interactive health. We are different from most interactive companies. We hire in-house, full-time health professionals with front-line experience. This adds significantly to our understanding of how to create the most effective health education programs. We realize that there is a significant need to offer consumer-level information to effectively assist health professionals in their role of improving patient health.
MediResource has become a leading health information publisher (with extremely strong knowledge of how to use technology). We are at the forefront of creating new technologies that deliver health content. We differentiate ourselves from others, as we don't just create health information or just develop technology, we do both. We'll continue to increase our reach and stay true to our philosophy of helping people improve their health.
MediResource is an international, privately held organization with offices in Montreal, Quebec, and Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
