digital health care landscape


Toronto, ON (May 15, 2020) – Jack Nathan Health® is pleased to announce their new partnership with Canada Health Infoway to implement PrescribeIT® - a digital prescribing platform. This eprescribing service allows doctors and other prescribing medical professionals in Jack Nathan Health® clinics to electronically transmit a prescription directly to the patient’s pharmacy of choice. The PrescribeIT® platform provides safer and more efficient medication management while, eliminating the need for paper or faxed prescriptions. “Reliable access to health care is challenging for many Canadians during this difficult time,” says George Barakat, CEO and Co-Founder of Jack Nathan Health®. “At Jack Nathan Health®, we are continuing to find innovative ways for our clinics to provide quality patient care in a safe and effective way. The new PrescribeIT® e-prescribing platform is another way that our clinics are continuing to utilize technology to connect with our patients across the country.” PrescribeIT® enables medical professionals to electronically create, receive, renew and cancel prescriptions all through a secure digital platform. This platform has been created with standardized terminology through the Canadian Clinic Drug Data Set and is integrated with public drug formularies for a secure and effective clinic experience. “We are excited to welcome Jack Nathan Health to the PrescribeIT® family,” said Jamie Bruce, Executive Vice President, Canada Health Infoway. “This partnership will enable prescribers across Canada to send electronic prescriptions directly to a patient’s pharmacy of choice, eliminating the use of paper or faxed prescriptions and making prescribing safer and more secure, easier and more convenient. We look forward to a long and successful partnership with Jack Nathan Health.” Along with the PrescribeIT® e-prescribing service, Jack Nathan Health has launched the innovative Telemedicine Virtual Care Portal where patients can access primary medical care through secure phone or video chats in their own home.
