Complex Care Delivery

Canvas is the only extensible EMR development platform that meets all of the needs for Medicare, Medicaid and chronic care delivery. Together on Canvas, developers and providers partner to define and operate their care models faster and better.

“Canvas works 3x as fast, improves performance dramatically on key quality metrics, and is incredibly easy to use. The right information is presented in the right way at the right time, and it leverages technology to improve the quality of care I provide.”

Steve Magee, Dignity Health Medical Foundation, Santa Cruz, CA


Care model delivery innovation tends to take place in spite of, not because of, the EMR. Multidisciplinary teams know exactly what they want to do, but lack modern software tooling for execution. As a result, builders are forced into trade-offs between cost, quality, and experience.  Builders must often purchase 3-5 different siloed software products (e.g. EMR, RCM, Population Health), and then battle integration, administrative, training, and maintenance nightmares. Companies are forced to hire more employees, and the employees are unsatisfied with the company’s technology offering.


Canvas built a comprehensive suite of care delivery and payment solutions - a true EMR development platform - so healthcare innovators can invent new ways to care for the sickest among us. Our Workflow SDK reliably surfaces your clinical, financial and operational data insights at the point of care. Our Collaboration, Care Management, and Quality Improvement products allow providers to manage high complexity patients and populations with coordinated communication, care plans, and data driven insights. With Canvas, execution of value-based risk management is precise.

Trusted by enterprise leaders


Patina is reinventing primary care to profoundly improve the healthcare and aging experience for adults 65 and older. Founded in 2020 by CEO Jack Stoddard and featuring an accomplished product and engineering team, Patina’s partnership with Canvas follows $57 million in funding in late 2021 co-led by Andreessen Horowitz and GV, with participation from F-Prime, Rock Springs Capital, Viking Global Investors and others.

“As we redesign the care experience for older adults, we found Canvas to be the only EMR development platform that gives our engineers the control that they need to build differentiated in-house technology to support our home-based care model both through in-person and virtual services.”

- Jack Stoddard, CEO of Patina

Patina uses Canvas to:

  • Programmatically embed the logic of their modern clinical workflows into the point of care using the Canvas Workflow Kit
  • Connect their world-class patient app to the EMR with Canvas’s suite of bidirectional FHIR APIs, allowing patients and their caregivers to message and video-chat with clinicians, schedule appointments, and receive results and documents at home

“The extensibility of Canvas makes it one of the core engines powering both our patient-facing and internal applications. Canvas was the only solution we found with comprehensive clinical and financial capabilities that gives us full control over the core EMR infrastructure. We are further ahead in our product development timeline than we would be with any other EMR platform and our collaboration with Canvas engineers is highly productive and fun, too.”

– Reagan Elm, Principal Software Engineer at Patina


Circulo, a health technology company delivering world-class care to America's most vulnerable and underserved communities, partnered with Canvas in late 2021 to build Circulo’s clinical delivery technology assets on the Canvas EMR and payments development platform. Circulo was founded in 2020 by former Olive CEO Sean Lane, and recently announced having raised $50 million in venture capital from Drive Capital, General Catalyst, Oak HC/FT, SVB Capital and others. Circulo maintains a bold vision for automation and quality improvement in both the administrative and clinical activities of providing health for the people they serve.

Circulo is building on Canvas to:

  • Automate sophisticated task routing for whole-person care across a highly interdisciplinary team spanning clinical, social, financial, and operational domains
  • Facilitate personalized, clinically precise, and culturally appropriate communications that meets people where they are most comfortable
  • Automate medical coding and claims submission from their primary health clinics

“Canvas’s modern platform supports our mission to provide holistic care to vulnerable individuals. Canvas doesn’t bind us to the constraints of legacy EMRs that were designed solely for fee-for-service care and billing. Canvas offers us extensibility in the capture of every encounter with the people we serve. Whatever the individual’s goal is, Canvas enables our team to build a plan and track their progress. We can define workflows with fully computable clinical data and extend the model for paraclinical communication and care plans.”

– Sam Christie, Principal Architect at Circulo Health Solutions
