In a news release, digital health company CloudMD Software & Services Inc. (DOC:CSE; PHGRF:OTCQB; 6PH:FSE) announced that "it will be partnering with pharmacies across Canada to input kiosks that will enable on-demand telemedicine visits with licensed doctors."
The report advised that the kiosks will be installed in each participating pharmacy's existing private consultation rooms. "Patients will be able to see a doctor within minutes for prescription refills and non-emergency health concerns right from their local pharmacy and after the virtual visit is complete, the prescription can be eFaxed directly to the pharmacy for fulfillment," the company stated.
"We're excited to be able to bring this innovative care option to patients. The local pharmacist is an important part of a patients allied healthcare team. Unfortunately many patients don't find out they are out of refills until they are at the pharmacy and are unable to get a new prescription before they run out," remarked CloudMD's CEO Essam Hamza, M.D.
"At CloudMD, we are committed to providing patients access to the care they need, when they need it. Through this new telehealth offering, patients now have an additional option for seeking care that is even more convenient for them," Dr. Hamza added.
The company explained that it offers patients access to all points of their care from their phone, tablet or desktop computer. The firm's stated that its CloudMD proprietary health technology solutions software facilitates delivery of quality healthcare across Canada through the combination of connected primary care clinics, telemedicine and artificial intelligence (AI). The company noted that its healthcare ecosystem includes 315 clinics with more than 3,000 licensed practitioners and almost 3 million registered patients.[NLINSERT]
