Women of Inspiration™ Podcast EP10 – Jessica Tsang | Universal Womens Network™ | COVID19 EDITION

In this episode, we have the honour of interviewing Jessica Tsang, Founder and Director, Direct Health Solutions and 2018 Women of Inspiration™ Millennial Leader Award.

Jessica is a family nurse practitioner on a mission to improve the quality of health care and increase access to health care. After spending years working in ICU and urgent care, she felt exasperated seeing health complications that could have been prevented by early screening and treatment. She started asking her patients why… and they told her that they struggled to get to the clinic for various reasons. For many, leaving the home is simply not feasible due to physical and/or psychological challenges.

It is proven that a lack of primary health care leads to a poor quality of health, a poor quality of life, and even early death. Jessica removes the barrier of going to the clinic by bringing medical and laboratory services to people in their homes. The provision of medical house calls are proven to help seniors maintain their independence, support individuals and families to optimize their health, improve end-of-life care for palliative patients in their homes, and divert unnecessary 911 calls and visits to the emergency department.
When she is not making house calls, Jessica is shaping the minds of future nurses as a faculty member of Mount Royal University School of Nursing & Midwifery.™
