    Problem:
    Pharmacies are doing the best they can to implement protective measures for both themselves and their patients during this pandemic. However, it is up to everyone to do their part to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19 at pharmacies to protect the vulnerable populations that need to access these places. Even if you’re asymptomatic you can still spread COVID-19 to others! That is why there is a significant need for solutions to reduce the number of patients entering or waiting at pharmacies to reduce the spread of COVID-19 to our most vulnerable populations.


    MedEssist Solution:
    We want to help you and your community stop the spread of COVID-19 in pharmacies by connecting patients with pharmacies with the best physical distancing measures! MedEssist enables all Canadians to order medications from any pharmacy using their phone or computer by scanning any pharmacy receipt. MedEssist is free for all patients and can be used at any pharmacy of choice! This ensures physical distancing and decreases the number of patients entering or waiting at pharmacies to reduce the spread of COVID-19 to our most vulnerable populations. For pharmacies interested in fully utilizing the platform they also can receive MedEssist for free during COVID-19.
