PetalMD Wins the Award for Achievement Outside of Quebec at the 2019 Fidéides Gala

In 2018, Quebec's expertise in digital health has enabled several healthcare institutions in Europe and Canada to save valuable time, optimize physicians' schedule management and get key data on the medical services they offer. It was to highlight this achievement that Quebec’s Chamber of Commerce and Industry selected PetalMD as the winner of the prestigious Award for Achievement Outside of Quebec at the 2019 Fidéides Gala. A recognition that we are very proud to receive.

Receiving the Award for Achievement Outside of Quebec

The award was given to Patrice Gilbert, CEO and founder of PetalMD, who was delighted that initiatives such as the Fidéides Gala showcase the important work that companies do every day to create value for Quebec.

" I'm very proud to see that as a society, we are becoming more and more aware and more aware of the importance of generating collective values. When a Quebec company owns its intellectual property, it generates a lot of value for society, especially when the company is able to export its products."
