DR LUC BESSETTE

Founder

Bachelor in biophysics from Université de Montréal, Dr. Luc Bessette is a family doctor. He is now working in a private medicine setting to have latitude to develop personalized health tools for both patients and practitioners.

His strong commitment to science drove him to file multiple patents in the field of information technology in the health sciences.

In 2018, he won his case in Federal Court against the Health Ministry of Québec and the Régie de l’Assurance-Maladie du Québec for infringement and inducement of infringement of two of his Canadian patents by the deployment of the Dossier Santé Québec. This court case in now settled and both parties are satisfied of the outcome.
