Think, CareRx deliver care to senior’s facilities
March 3, 2021
TORONTO – Think Research Corp. has announced a Canada-wide partnership with CareRx to deliver virtual healthcare to seniors living in retirement homes. CareRx, a leading provider of specialty pharmacy services to seniors, currently serves about 50,000 residents in more than 900 seniors homes.
Through phase one of the partnership with CareRX, Think will deliver virtual visits with primary care doctors under existing telemedicine physician billing codes.
That program is expected to grow significantly following a successful conclusion of the initial roll-out, and be expanded to cover additional retirement residences, and to include specialists, mental health practitioner and allied care professionals.
Through the partnership, Think’s VirtualCare telemedicine software will provide seniors with easy and secure access to physician care.
The software connects retirement residents to Think’s network of physicians and specialists, allowing them to consult virtually from the comfort of their own residence. Any prescription medication a resident may need following a virtual appointment can be fulfilled through CareRx and will be delivered directly to the resident.
Sachin Aggarwal (pictured), CEO of Think said, “The COVID-19 pandemic has made it clear that telemedicine is a vital tool to help ensure all patients have access to care providers without risking their health.
“We’re incredibly pleased to be working with CareRx and its network to fundamentally improve virtual healthcare services for seniors across the country and make it as safe and easy as possible for them to get quality care.”
The seamless healthcare experience provided through Think’s telemedicine software reduces the risk of spreading COVID-19 within retirement communities by limiting in-person interactions and provides increased access to timely primary care services. The goal is to make it easier for residents to maintain their health, manage their medications and receive quality care.
David Murphy, president and CEO of CareRx, said, “One of the core tenets in providing best-in-class seniors pharmacy solutions is to leverage technology that will further contribute to the highest levels of care and safety for the residents of our seniors home customers.
“To this end, we are thrilled to partner with Think Research, a leader in healthcare technology solutions for this innovative seniors healthcare initiative. VirtualCare supported by CareRx pharmacy services ensures ongoing health maintenance, as residents can ‘see’ a physician face-to-face in a timely and effective manner and have quick and easy access to their prescription medications.”
