Emerg Master wins Kiss My App contest sponsored by Vena Solutions

Kiss My App 3.0

If these students produced this app in high school, I can only imagine what they'll be doing in the next 3-5 years.

Vena Solutions, the fastest growing provider of cloud-based corporate performance management (CPM) software, is proud to congratulate the team of two 15-year olds behind Emerg Master, the winner of this year’s Kiss My App national mobile healthcare app contest for students.

A panel of expert judges from the healthcare and technology sectors named Emerg Master the winner of the contest, open to high school, post-secondary and post-grad students from across the country. Now in its third year, Kiss My App is hosted by the Central West Community Care Access Centre, Headwaters Health Care Centre and William Osler Health System. As the presenting sponsor, Vena Solutions will present the winning team with their $10,000 grand prize at the official app launch today at Etobicoke General Hospital.

"We're very proud to support the contest and especially the winning team,” said Don Mal, CEO of Vena Solutions. “If these students produced this app in high school, I can only imagine what they'll be doing in the next 3-5 years."

Emerg Master was developed by grade 9 students Caius Dobson and Jacob Luxton from Grey Highlands Secondary School in Flesherton, Ontario. Featuring interactive characters and gaming elements, the app was designed to help patients more easily navigate through emergency departments and community care services.

"The ingenuity, determination and passion demonstrated by our winning team is nothing short of inspirational,” said Susan deRyk, Joint Vice-President, Service Quality and Community Relations with the hosting organizations. “We look forward to using the app to help transform the patient experience across our organizations.”

"At Vena, we know first-hand how valuable and influential our youngest team members can be,” added Mal. They're clearly not just the leaders of tomorrow, but already the innovators of today."

Emerg Master will be available for free download on Google Play as of today’s launch.
