here PopRx, the Canadian leader in mobile pharmacy applications, has partnered with STI Technologies Limited’s innoviCares program to offer Canadians a comprehensive mobile solution to their healthcare needs. PopRx, the Canadian on-demand pharmacy app that connects you to a local independent pharmacist to manage, order and deliver your medication, has taken significant strides in reducing prescription medication costs to Canadians and Canadian employers by partnering with innoviCares to ensure that patients across the country are able to save money on the prescription medications their physician has prescribed. InnoviCares is a free prescription savings card that helps Canadian patients save money on select prescription medications at pharmacy. Funded by participating pharmaceutical manufacturers, innoviCares works like any insurance card to provide savings at the point of purchase at pharmacy. It also delivers electronic tools to help users manage their healthcare through refill reminders, medication tracking and more. “We are lucky to be a health tech company in Canada, where we can connect with other Canadian health partners, like innoviCares, who share our vision for reducing costs and increasing access to vital medication for all Canadians,” says Dr. Ali Esmail, CEO of PopRx. “InnoviCares is a great product, and many of our customers, and Canadians everywhere, had no idea that services like this existed, which is why we have integrated it into our PopRx app. We see this as a huge step forward for access to affordable medication that people need across the country.” Through the partnership, PopRx and innoviCares ensure Canadians are able to receive the prescription medications prescribed by a physician with fewer barriers, including a reduction in cost and access to a pharmacy. When a patient fills or refills a prescription with PopRx, they can use their innoviCares card to save money, live-chat with a pharmacist if needed, and take advantage of free, same-day delivery in major markets across the country. “Partnering with PopRx was a natural fit for us,” Dave Morton, EVP of STI Technologies, said. “Integration with the PopRx mobile app is just another way we can help patients gain access to medications of their choosing, based on their physician’s advice.” The PopRx app is available online on both Apple iOS and Android on both the App Store and Play Store.
