April 3, 2020 – Saskatoon, SK
During these difficult pandemic times, the need for trusted information on COVID-19, in addition to many other health conditions, in a digital format has never been greater. Pharmacists and doctors are moving at a rapid rate to conduct virtual healthcare in order to minimize risks.
PharmaChoice Canada announced today a strategic alliance with iMD Health Global that will help evolve digital communications between 2,000+ member pharmacists and their patients to improve their health education while reducing risk and increasing safety.
iMD and PharmaChoice Canada have designed two platforms that are launching today! STAY ADVISED, Patient Health Platform. All pharmacists in either the PharmaChoice or the RxHealthMed banner now have access to over 80,000 digital resources (images, video’s and documents) to facilitate education and understanding with their patients, all able to be emailed for further review and understanding.
“We believe the iMD platform will enhance how our pharmacists are supporting our patients during these difficult times, but also when we return to normalcy,” says Grady Brown, Co-CEO of PharmaChoice Canada, “quick and easy access to robust and visually appealing resources is now literally at the pharmacist’s fingertips.”
“With the changing landscape of services our pharmacists can now deliver, coupled with the challenges of COVID-19, we needed a digital tool that will enable our team to capitalize on this service delivery,” says Calvin LeRoux, Co-CEO of PharmaChoice.
“We are very excited about our new multi-year strategic partnership with PharmaChoice Canada. We are bringing our industry leading library of trusted content from health associations, governments, MAYO Clinic, Vigilance Santé (drug database partner) and from many product manufacturers and making it available to all their pharmacists and patients,” says Kevin Delano, President and CEO of iMD Health Global.
