The Story of Canvas.

Canvas was founded in 2015 by a data scientist who was astonished and moved to action by the burden that typical EMRs place on clinicians.

Andrew Hines watched as his wife, Anna, a family nurse practitioner, wasted endless hours of their family time finishing charting. Often moved to profound frustration, Anna was losing faith in her calling. Andrew began asking questions, watching as she clicked between countless dropdowns and templates, and quickly developed a hypothesis. Combatting the growing crisis of faith amongst clinicians would require an EMR that utilizes clean, structured data in an intuitive, human-centered format, to deliver better patient outcomes and better quality of life for primary care clinicians and their care teams.

We started from scratch, designing a new EMR 
with the end-user in mind.

Andrew set out to shift the paradigm of what an EMR can and should be. Since that day, Canvas has been devoted to shattering expectations, offering a unified Care Modeling Platform for ambitious care delivery companies.

We are dedicated to advancing the practice of medicine through clinician-developer collaboration.

The old way of doing things has already been disrupted

Across the land, agile, creative software companies are already delivering more personalized, more effective care to patients virtually. The traditional ways of care delivery have already been disrupted and the days of slow, siloed and expensive legacy health IT are numbered. The next chapter in how we care for our families and our neighbors is already being written.

Better software is the answer. What do you want to build today?
