Our Vision

About Us

About-Keel Digital Solution

Originally founded as Vector Health in January 2021, KDS began offering Covid-19 testing among other fluids testing services after acquiring Med-Chem Health Care (ON Licence #5697). In March 2021 we acquired FIQ Labs (ISO 15189), multiplying our diagnostic capabilities, and opening a storefront clinic in Toronto. We expanded again during the CoVid-19 pandemic, offering telehealth services to the Ontario Ministry of Health and health providers and institutions across the province of Ontario. 

Expanding Into Mental Healthcare 

While Keel Digital Solutions (KDS) is a recent entity, our pedigree goes back to 2014 with the incorporation of FIQ Labs, with Get A-Head® being established in 2017 and Vector Health rebranding as KDS in 2023.
