PharmaTrustTM technology enables pharmacists to deliver pharmacy services wherever, whenever, in any language

The Government of Ontario today announced passage of regulations that fully enable remote pharmacy dispensing in all areas of the province.  Further to the provisions of Bill 179, passed in December 2009, these regulations provide the framework for how remote dispensing will occur in Ontario, and mark a historic moment in health care delivery in Canada. The regulations create the ability to deliver pharmacy services and prescription medication through an automated pharmacy dispensing system, such as the one provided by PharmaTrustTM.

The MedCentreTM, PharmaTrust's first product, is a complete pharmacy with the capacity to dispense over 2000 different prescription and over-the-counter medications, and will include features such as pill counting and refrigeration in the future. The MedCentre is entirely pharmacist operated and controlled, and can allow for 24 hour access to pharmacy services anywhere, without the barriers of time, distance, language, or costs associated with traditional pharmacies. The MedCentre employs state-of-the-art video and scanning technologies to provide patients with a remote, face-to-face consultation in real-time with an Ontario pharmacist, and to have their prescriptions filled quickly and safely. The MedCentreTM is the safest, most comprehensive health care pharmacy system developed globally to date.
