“iMedicare has proven valuable for our pharmacists when providing support for our patients trying to navigate the maze that Medicare plan selection can be,” said Jason Briscoe, Drug Mart’s Director, Pharmacy Operations. “The user-friendly platform provides accurate information within a matter of seconds. As we continue to expand our role as healthcare providers, there is nothing more valuable to a pharmacist than time.”
The affiliation between iMedicare and Discount Drug Mart will provide pharmacists with access to automated software that seamlessly integrates into pharmacies’ current workflow.
