The Canadian healthcare company Ask The Doctor headquartered in Toronto, provide medical and health information and services.

Prakash Chand, co-founder, and CEO of Ask The Doctor seems to be a big crypto enthusiast. In April 2016, in an interview with the Huffington Post, Prakash Chand and Dr. Michael Warner, who at the time was chief medical officer, spoke about the company’s acceptance of crypto assets, including bitcoin (BTC) and five other cryptocurrencies, as a means of payment.

When they were questioned why the firm had commenced accepting Bitcoin, Warner replied:

In the realm of healthcare, most consider the foundation of patient privacy as restricting access to the content of the doctor-patient interaction. In digital health, securing the content of such interactions is absolutely necessary but may not offer certain patients the level of privacy they require. Our customers share with us privileged and sensitive information. Until we added Bitcoin, our services had to be purchased using a Credit Card or Paypal. To some, having a banking paper trail documenting a transaction with “Ask The Doctor” did not provide them with a sufficient level of privacy.

The other reason to offer payment through Bitcoin is to maximize accessibility to our services. Credit cards are not universally available. In some cultures, women do not have the same financial freedom as men to obtain them. Two-thirds of our customers are women and we have customers in every country in the developing world. Our overall goal is to democratize access to health care, and offering Bitcoin is consistent with this goal.
