CloudMD and Save-On-Foods Partner to Pilot On Demand Virtual Patient Care by Integrating Telemedicine Kiosks in Pharmacies

VANCOUVER, British Columbia, May 04, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CloudMD Software & Services Inc. (CSE:DOC)(OTCQB:PHGRF)(Frankfurt: 6PH)(the “Company” or “CloudMD”), a telemedicine company revolutionizing the delivery of healthcare to patients, is excited to announce that it has entered into a non-binding Letter of Intent (“LOI”) with Save-On-Foods and separately with Pure Integrative Pharmacy to pilot telemedicine kiosks in nine stores throughout British Columbia.

For 6 weeks starting on May 26, 2020, CloudMD’s telemedicine software and services will be offered free of charge to Save-On-Foods and Pure Integrative Pharmacy clients. Telemedicine kiosks will be installed in existing private consult rooms in participating Save-On-Foods and Pure Integrative Pharmacy locations across BC. Patients will be able to see a doctor for prescription refills and non-emergency health concerns in real time on-site, and after the virtual visit, the prescription can be submitted directly to the same pharmacy for fulfillment. The delivery of these services will be billed under provincial medical plans.

Save-On-Foods is Canada’s largest Western-based grocery chain with over 170 stores across BC, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and in Whitehorse, Yukon. Pure Integrative Pharmacy is one of BC’s leading independent community pharmacies and has been servicing patients with 16 locations across BC since 2008.

In addition to the corporate arrangement, CloudMD and Save-On-Foods are joining forces to help provide home-based telemedicine and delivery services (where available) of medications to at risk patients who cannot, or should not, leave self-isolation. BC patients unable to travel out of their homes can advise their CloudMD doctor they require home delivery of their medication and Save-On-Food’s pharmacies will take care of fulfillment and delivery.

Dr. Essam Hamza, CEO of CloudMD commented,

“One of our key growth drivers is our kiosk implementation program, and we are excited to work with Save-On-Foods and Pure Integrative Pharmacy on the first major step of the rollout. CloudMD, Save-On-Foods, and Pure Integrative Pharmacy share a community-centric vision and are all aligned in maintaining customer-focused businesses.” He continued, “Our priority is providing patients with innovative, accessible healthcare when and where they need it and in doing so, integrating the pharmacist into their team-based care. The initial paid pilot program is the first phase of our kiosk implementation and will hopefully lead to long term, mutually beneficial relationship with Save-On-Foods and Pure Integrative Pharmacy.”
