Let's Stay Connected
Tous Ensemble!


About us

The Quebec population is currently subjected to extreme containment measures since the emergence of the Covid-19 virus, causing unprecedented social isolation.

This isolation is amplified among hospitalized patients, as no visitors are allowed in hospitals. Patients are forced to fight alone, deprived of the support offered by their family and friends.

Anxiety and distress are real and felt by both patients and their families. The impact of isolation on their mental health and recovery is profound.

We felt compelled to act.

Together

Tous Ensemble: Who are we?

We are a collective of volunteer health professionals who assist hospitals and their foundations with a turnkey technological solution to break patient isolation and reunite families.

How do we help hospitals?

We offer a simple, intuitive, and ready-to-use communication technology solution, as well as an implementation plan developed jointly with the institutions to fit their clinical reality.

From initial contact to implementation: 24 to 48 hours.
