CloudMD Expands Partnership With Save-On-Foods For Telemedicine

CloudMD Software & Services (TSXV: DOC) is expanding its pilot telemedicine program with that of Save-On-Foods. The grocer, which has over 180 locations across Western Canada, will see CloudMD on Demand offered to all of its customers.

Service to Save-On customers is being extended via this on demand service, which will be launched on the grocers website to provide better access to health care for its customers. Customers of the company will now be able to see a doctor at one of the nine pharmacy kiosks currently implemented at retail locations, or through the online link which is available on any smart device.

With CloudMD on Demand being embedded into Save-On’s website, customers will now be able to see a doctor for several different types of visits including referrals, health related questions, prescriptions, lab referrs and finally for the review of test results. The service is available seven days a week, with the grocer also providing prescription deliveries as a part of the service.

Finally, the service is being offered free for customers, enabling a reduced barrier to use the platform while also enabling better access to healthcare, something critically important amidst a global pandemic.

“We are proud to deepen our partnership with Save-On-Foods to provide customers with better access to care through an on-demand telemedicine link. Save-On-Food’s has an industry-leading, intuitive e-commerce platform, and now customers will be able to see a doctor directly on the website from their home, school or workplace, for medical related issues or prescription refills and either pick up the prescription at the pharmacy of their choice, or have it delivered directly, for free.”
