Sunniva (CSE:SNN) announced its subsidiary Natural Health Services will enter a partnership with online cannabis telehealth company HelloMD.
As quoted in the press release:
NHS operates a network of seven clinics specializing in medical cannabis in four provinces and has approximately 105,000 registered patients. In this joint effort, HelloMD will provide its turnkey set of white-label services to NHS, affording existing and future NHS patients the added option and convenience of an online health care practitioner consultation. In addition, NHS will have the opportunity to extend its services to areas where they do not currently have clinics, to reduce wait times, and to offer the convenience of evening and weekend consultations.
“This partnership is about both companies focusing on what they do best,” said Larry Lisser, HelloMD’s SVP of Business Development. “HelloMD’s telehealth service extends access to practitioner-led advice to more Canadians, while our integration with the NHS platform enables their patients to seamlessly benefit from the educational services NHS is so well known for. This is a win for patients all around.”
NHS patients will be first directed to a co-branded landing page on the HelloMD platform. Those patients who receive a medical document from HelloMD will be seamlessly transferred to an NHS Patient Educator who in turn helps them to understand the various options available and assists them in the selection of a Licensed Producer from which to buy medical cannabis.
