The largest product release for the company’s virtual pharmacy platform to-date, targets a key and growing target problem in Canada; the administrative burden on caregivers who are managing multiple medications, many times for multiple dependents. This feature allows users to manage the medication profiles of multiple users from a single account. By utilizing the power of mobile technology, home-delivery and an “always on” pharmacy experience, Mednow is providing an effective solution for the caregivers of Canadian households.
TORONTO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Mednow Inc. (TSXV: MNOW) (OTCQX: MDNWF), Canada’s on-demand virtual pharmacy has launched its largest technology release to-date.
At the core of the new product upgrade is the new caregiver feature suite. The caregiver feature suite allows users to add dependents to their account, making it easier for caregivers to manage the medication and healthcare needs of their loved ones. This will be useful for caregivers to keep track of medication schedules, refill prescriptions, manage prescription deliveries, and consult with a clinical pharmacist relating to the care of their loved one.
By offering this feature suite, Mednow is providing a much-needed solution to a growing need in the Canadian market, particularly among the aging population.
Additionally, this feature creates a unique opportunity for Mednow to deepen its synergies with Medvisit, which specializes in providing doctor visits to geriatric patients. As a growing segment of this market consists of patients who are homebound, the caregiver feature set will allow caregivers to easily manage medication reconciliation and delivery, without either party ever needing to set foot in the pharmacy.
“I am very proud of our technology team for their work on this major product release,” said Ali Reyhany, CEO and Co-Founder of Mednow. “This feature is the latest improvement of our proprietary technology that was engineered to provide an ideal virtual pharmacy experience. When combined with the adherence solutions and clinical services Mednow provides, we believe we have a unique and unmatched offering for elderly Canadians and their caregivers. Having spent over 15 years in the pharmacy industry in Canada as a pharmacist myself, I saw first hand that it was often the children or loved ones of those on multiple medications who had to deal with the prescription management for their parents.”
Mednow will launch a comprehensive fee-based elder care product in partnership with existing and expanding distributors, plan administrators, and payors later this year. This benefit is rapidly gaining popularity in Canada and is a standard offering in many US corporate plans.
Our product combines virtual and at-home care, caregiver medication management, delivery and adherence solutions all in one application, making it an excellent solution for workers caring for elderly family members.
The combination of on-call and in-app doctor home visit dispatch or virtual services, medication management, delivery, automatic refills, and adherence solutions will provide workers with a fantastic new elder care benefit product, offering peace of mind to caregivers that their loved ones are receiving the care they need from the comfort of their homes. Our Chief Revenue Officer, David Marantz, says, “this is an excellent solution for a large (and growing) generation of Canadian workers caring for elderly family members.”
“Our software application is the gateway to our full service pharmacy team, who can provide advice on medications and recently are now also able to prescribe for 13 minor ailments in Ontario. We are on a mission to empower pharmacists to enhance our healthcare system with technology, and this is a major step towards that,” said Ali Reyhany, CEO at Mednow.
