The Knowledge of Innovation

MMI coordinates the delivery and consults on the entire spectrum of patient care, from education and early diagnosis, to the development of best practice protocols. We assist our institutional clients and provide consulting services and advice that may pertain to specific elements of a project, or relate to every detail of major initiatives. Our objective is to be able to provide assistance on the entire range of healthcare management including budget development, risk assessment and analysis of facility requirements, including equipment and human resources planning, scheduling and management services. Through our multidisciplinary approach, we also assist our clients in building sustainable, independent healthcare programs to improve efficiency and optimize care as well as developing custom tele-health programs.
MMI assists its clients to build independent accredited healthcare programs and healthcare institutions by providing consulting services on training and education. We also consult with clients needing access to experts in a variety of fields including medical simulation and continuing medical education at affiliate institutions. We also help clients to identify opportunities for their staff to participate in teaching rounds, conferences and discussions on patient care at affiliated institutions.
MMI is well positioned to provide the highest level of medical simulation expertise and organizational know-how in the planning, development and functioning of world-class simulation centres. The primary goal of simulation-based educational excellence is to improve the quality of the provision of care while increasing patient safety.  Other significant benefits include applying the best methods for learning, developing opportunities for assessment and accreditation and creating continuous professional development.

This unique capability is based on MMI’s strategic association with the Faculty of Medicine of McGill University, one of Canada’s best-known institutions of higher education and one of the leading universities in healthcare education in the world. The McGill University’s state-of-the-art Steinberg Centre for Simulation and Interactive Learning is globally recognized and fully accredited by the Royal College of Physicians of Canada, the Society for Simulation in Healthcare and the American College of Surgeons.

Daily challenges inherent to contemporary healthcare systems require preparing for acute events, through personal and teamwork practice with an emphasis on communication skills, human factors awareness, and technical skills proficiency. We believe that there is a direct correlation between optimal medial simulation training and the improved performance of health care professionals.  

Through our academic network, we can facilitate identifying opportunities for participation in various academic and clinical exchange programs. This unique approach provides participants with ample access to research resources and allows them to gain exposure to best practice protocols through our world-class healthcare and academic affiliates.

MMI’s role is designed to serve as a catalyst in shaping an integrated and sustainable approach to health care, with specific impact on the key issues of the participants’ organizations and communities through meaningful academic research and innovation. The main objective is to reshape the way our clients interpret and respond to today’s complex healthcare issues.

MMI is a Canadian leader in the coordination and delivery of health assistance services through its participation in a program that offers employer-sponsored Medical Second Opinion (MSO) consultation services (the first of such services that is Canadian based), drawing on independently contracted physicians affiliated with the Faculty of Medicine of McGill University, and associated directly with health assistance experts and various private group health insurers.

We believe that individuals have the right to put their health first. Through its participation in this private insurance based enterprise, coordinating the delivery of medical second opinions by qualified physicians, MMI is helping to ensure that patients get the right diagnosis, the best treatment options, and have increased access to advanced knowledge within the Canadian healthcare system.

Electronically coordinated via the MMI MSO Coordination Centre using secure web-based tele-health technology, MSO services provide patients and their own treating physicians, with access to independent medical reviews, diagnosis and treatment recommendations on complex medical issues across a range of medical specialities.
