Amid recent headlines shedding light on the challenges of overwork and understaffing plaguing the pharmacy industry, a newly formed Alberta-based partnership will be a driving force for positive change in the industry.
At a pivotal moment when pharmacists find themselves stretched thin, grappling with heightened demand, this partnership arrives as a timely and vital solution. It places the power in the hands of clients, enabling them to prepay for pharmacy services through Helcim’s flexible payment options.
MedEssist Payments, powered by Helcim, not only alleviates the burden on overworked pharmacists at the time of the appointment but also significantly enhances overall customer satisfaction.
“Our collaboration prioritizes user-friendliness for pharmacists and patients. MedEssist emphasizes ease of use, recognizing the fast-paced nature of independent pharmacy operations. With Helcim’s payment integration, MedEssist seamlessly handles upfront payments like consultation fees, ensuring clear and affordable payment processing. This partnership aims to provide a transparent and convenient experience for all involved,” commented Chris Fenwick of Helcim.
This strategic partnership between MedEssist and Helcim highlights how Canadian-built technology is being used to improve the lives of Canadians and North Americans alike.
It underscores their shared vision of a thriving independent pharmacy ecosystem that can better serve patients and communities across the province and North America.
Both Helcim and MedEssist are alumni of the Google for Startups Accelerator program.
