Dr. Daisy Fung

Advisory Board

Daisy Fung is family physician based out of Edmonton (being born and raised on a rural Alberta farm) after having completed her undergraduate, medical school and Family Medicine residency at the University of Alberta. She has a passion for and focus on home visits for any housebound patient for example geriatric and palliative patients. She also loves Long Term Care and works at several facilities.

She is a fervent supporter of improving access to quality primary care in any way feasible, whether it is through a brick and mortar clinic, phone calls and virtual visits, and house calls - with the aim to decreasing/preventing unnecessary transfers to the ER and acute care admissions, and keeping patients at home, whatever type of home that may mean, until death. She is also a mom to four kiddos and partner to Christopher, who truly teach her to be a better human being, and better physician, every day.

Our vision of telemedicine

We started PurposeMed because we believe telemedicine has the potential to equalize how care is provided to patients, regardless of their social status, income, mobility, location or access to transportation.

The future of healthcare, and mental healthcare, is one that smartly blends necessary in-person visits with online follow ups, prescription renewals and consults, when they make sense. In a perfect world, all of this happens with a primary care physician.

Our mission is two-fold: to provide equal care to people who are currently most vulnerable and underserved, and to provide family physicians with their own online clinic rooms so they can continue to give patients the care they familiar with. So, if you want to follow-up or renew a prescription with your doctor online, you will get the care you need. If you don’t currently have a family doctor because the nearest clinic is 100km away, you will also get the care you need.

Telemedicine offers the convenience and safety of social distancing that in-person visits can’t. That’s why we launched our platform three months early — to safely and effectively ease the strain on doctors, patients and the healthcare system during the COVID-19 pandemic. And the thing about unprecedented times is that they often become precedent-setting. Our hygiene habits and expectations to stay home when we’re ill will likely become the new standard.

For these reasons, telemedicine is a crucial part of the way forward, and we are passionate about bringing equal care to all people — whoever and wherever they are. This does not mean online care should trump continuity of care with a primary care physician. As a physician-founded company, we understand how important that is. So, we are working to provide the best possible solution for both family doctor visits and quick visits that bridge the gap when your family doctor is not available.
