CloudMD announced that it is partnering with Save-On-Foods grocery stores and Pure Integrative Pharmacy to pilot on demand, integrated virtual patient care through telemedicine kiosks placed in pharmacies' existing consult rooms.

In a news release, CloudMD Software & Services Inc. (DOC:CSE; DOCRF:OTCQB; 6PH:FSE) announced that "it has entered into a non-binding Letter of Intent with Save-On-Foods and separately with Pure Integrative Pharmacy to pilot telemedicine kiosks in nine stores throughout British Columbia."

The company advised that for a period of six weeks beginning May 26, 2020, it will offer its telemedicine services free of charge to clients of both Save-On-Foods and Pure Integrative Pharmacy in participating British Columbia locations. The firm indicated that telemedicine kiosks will be installed in existing private consult rooms where patients will be able to see a doctor on-site in real time to discuss non-emergency health concerns and for prescription refills. After the virtual appointment is finished, the physician can submit any prescriptions directly to the same pharmacy to be filled, and the services and medications will then be eligible for billing under provincial medical plans.

CloudMD explained that Save-On-Foods is Canada's largest Western-based grocery chain with over 170 stores and that Pure Integrative Pharmacy is a leading independent pharmacy with 16 B.C. locations.

The company stated that it is also joining forces with Save-On-Foods to provide home-based telemedicine and Rx deliveries to at-risk, self-isolated B.C. patients. The firm said that patients have the capability to notify a CloudMD doctor that they require home delivery of their medication and Save-On-Food's pharmacies will process and deliver the order as requested.

"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," Dr. Hamza added.

CloudMD is headquartered in Vancouver, B.C. and offers software based health technology solutions to medical clinics across Canada and has developed proprietary technology that delivers quality healthcare through the combination of connected primary care clinics, telemedicine, and artificial intelligence (AI). The firm states that its healthcare ecosystem includes 376 clinics with access to more than 3,000 licensed practitioners and that nearly 3 million patient charts and health records are accessible to authorized users on its servers.
