Connecting Patients to Pharmacies

Physical distancing for pharmacies

Victoria Copp & Dian Han

    Few of us could have foreseen the changes that COVID-19 would impose upon our day-to-day lives. As fellow pharmacists, we know that the COVID-19 pandemic has required you to innovate new ways to keep your patients, pharmacy teams, and communities safe. At MedEssist, our priority is to deliver a proven solution to enable physical distancing in your pharmacy. By connecting patients to pharmacies, we help you reduce the amount of people visiting and waiting at pharmacies, ensuring your staff and community’s health and safety.

    MedEssist Solution:
    With the free MedEssist app, Canadians can request refills from any pharmacy simply by scanning any prescription receipt. In response to COVID-19, we are making this process easier than ever before by allowing patients to submit medication refills through our website; no downloads, sign-ups, or personal health information required. For a limited time, patients can visit Online Refills to request a medication refill from any pharmacy in Canada. The full MedEssist platform is also available to pharmacies for free during COVID-19, so you can experience the benefits of the more streamlined and modernized workflow that MedEssist enables. By working together, we can minimize the spread of COVID-19 in our community, and ensure that our most vulnerable populations are protected.
