We Want You to Love Primary Care

Our mission is to give clinicians and their teams highly usable, intelligent tools to advance their practice of medicine — and improve their day-to-day.

The Canvas Story

Canvas began as a personal mission—a data scientist’s desire to help his wife, a family nurse practitioner, stop sacrificing endless hours of free time to finish charting. In 2015, Canvas Medical was founded by Andrew Hines to reimagine the EMR for primary care. We knew that technology could be leveraged to enhance clinical effectiveness. We also knew it would require making data collection and documentation the byproduct of a high quality patient interaction, not the main event.

We started from scratch, designing a new EMR with the end-user in mind. We observed primary care teams, talked with hundreds of clinicians across the country, and requested input from our clinical advisory board composed of practicing primary care clinicians.

Canvas focuses on primary care practices because we believe you offer vital resources for our communities and are best positioned to manage patient care across the continuum. We want to ensure you have the tools you need to maintain high quality records, manage your patient populations, engage patients in their care, share information across the care continuum, meet quality metrics, navigate payment reform, and—most importantly—rediscover the meaning and joy you find in practicing medicine.
