Akira is an innovative new smartphone app, developed by a group of Canadian innovators, that is designed to ease and streamline the often stressful, confusing and convoluted process of finding a doctor.

Although this app isn't covered under government health insurance policies, it offers a lot of value in that it helps the problem of patients having to endure extraordinarily long wait times as they go about trying to be connected with a health care provider who can help them with their specific need. The app isn't intended to replace doctors, but can help patients receive and access prescriptions, while doctors can use the app to refer patients to specialists.

By improving the process of finding a doctor and medical specialist, Akira aims to help patients' get the specific kind of care they need with minimum hassle and fuss.
