Medicinal Marijuana Goes Mobile
MediSwipe, a patient security and financial solutions company for the medical marijuana and health care industry, and mobile marketing and payment solution provider 800 Commerce Inc. have formed a strategic alliance with an app developer LifeApps Digital Media.
According to the terms of the alliance, LifeApps Digital media will create several mobile applications for MediSwipe. The first, GetRx, will match patients with caregivers in legal jurisdictions for medical marijuana and provide a geographical locator for 18 states along with pharmacy, caregiver and dispensary listings. The second app, My800Doctor, will extend 800 Commerce’s telemedicine portal for geographical search of over 400,000 healthcare professionals across the US, along with appointment setting and prescription alerts.
“We are extremely pleased to have signed a preliminary agreement towards entering a partnership with LifeApps for the launch and extension of our mobile brand for GetRx and My800Doctor for iOS and Android,” said B. Michael Friedman, CEO of MediSwipe. “We look forward to launching the GetRx app for our consumers. We believe our timing is crucial and will be a meaningful revenue stream for our company based on new legislation regarding dispensaries.”
