TORONTO, Oct. 29, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- HelloMD, a leading online cannabis telehealth company, today announces expansion of its white-label services for Licensed Producers and brick-and-mortar clinics, to better serve the Canadian medical cannabis market.

The company’s white-labeled patient consult and support services offer Licensed Producers and brick-and-mortar cannabis clinics an opportunity to rapidly expand their patient populations while adding online solutions to better serve the fast growing wellness-oriented cannabis consumer segment.

Many Canadians seeking medical cannabis have physical limitations, live in areas far from the nearest clinic, or simply prefer the discretion and convenience implicit in virtual consults. HelloMD partners can offer their patients branded, online access to healthcare professionals from the comfort of their preferred location, seven days a week. The HelloMD platform has conducted more than 100,000 online medical cannabis consults and been deployed by 100’s of partners.

With zero capital outlay, and in as little as one day, HelloMD white-label partners can launch branded versions of one or more turnkey services:

  1. 100% Online Doctor Consultations. HelloMD partner patients experience the convenience and privacy of talking to a licensed practitioner from the comfort of wherever they choose, and interact in an online environment that reflects the partner’s brand. All practitioners are recruited, trained and managed by HelloMD. Patient documents are securely shared with partners via API or accessed via a partner portal.
  1. Education & Registration Services. Following the online consultation, a patient can engage, via video-chat, with a HelloMD patient services team member for help with licensed producer selection and registration. Alternatively, the partner can choose to have the patient returned to them immediately following the practitioner consult.
  1. Content Solutions. HelloMD can produce ongoing, tailored educational content and make it available within the partner’s branded patient portal. For partners reaching first-time patients, this is an opportunity to extend their position as a trusted source, without the heavy lifting of content creation and management.

The Flowr Corporation (“Flowr”) (TSXV: FLWR) recently launched HelloMD’s turnkey set of telehealth services. Patients and those seeking a medical consultation can access the HelloMD service through Flowr’s website https://flowr.ca/hellomd/.

“Flowr's partnership with HelloMD is part of our plan to offer a premium service and product experience to our medical clients. Flowr believes in easy access to cannabis for those who can benefit from its medicinal qualities and making the HelloMD platform available through our website gives clients convenient, discreet access to healthcare professionals at the time and place of their choosing. For some clients, this may be their only option to access medical cannabis,”​ said Dr. Lyle Oberg, Flowr Chief Policy and Medical Officer.

“HelloMD has always been a highly partner-centric company. We focus our feature development, service scalability and level of customer service on patients and the partners that serve them. We’re excited to be working on Flowr and others seeking to expand on their reach or the level of service they offer prospective patients,” said Larry Lisser, HelloMD’s SVP of Business Development.
