Two of country’s most innovative digital healthcare services partner to deliver medical care and prescriptions directly to Canadian homes
In ORDER TO better serve Canadians looking to access medical care and prescriptions from the comfort and safety of their homes, The Health Depot Pharmacy, headquartered in London, Ontario, and Toronto-based Lyte Medical have announced an online partnership to help patients quickly and easily attain medication and health essentials needs.
“As a registered pharmacist since 2011, I have witnessed the evolution of healthcare in Canada,” says Andy Donald, founder and CEO of The Health Depot Pharmacy. “The Health Depot Pharmacy’s partnership with Lyte Medical will allow Ontarians to see a physician and access their prescribed medications in a timely fashion. Our unique pharmacy services and approach allows necessary medications to be delivered promptly to those who rely on them, wherever and whenever they need them.”
The Health Depot makes the pharmacy and healthcare shopping experience simple for all Ontarians. Its healthcare e-commerce store has thousands of health essentials available for online purchase and delivery, which can be shipped together with prescriptions for free. Their Daily Dose Packs allow for an easy approach for patients who are taking multiple medications to have a simple, one daily packet approach, which is particularly helpful to seniors, caregivers, chronically ill and individuals with special needs among others.
As an innovator in the Canadian telemedicine space, Lyte Medical’s patient friendly website makes connecting with a physician simple and easy. Lyte’s comprehensive services include primary care, specialist referrals, mental health support, chronic pain treatment and acute care.
“Our forward-thinking partnership with The Health Depot Pharmacy creates unprecedented access to a seamless virtual care experience,” says Ali Mohamed, CEO of Lyte Medical. “Canadians need medical care and medications in ways that accommodate their life circumstances. Lyte Medical’s virtual platform allows patients to speak to a doctor from the comfort of their own home and obtain their prescribed medications and health products online from The Health Depot Pharmacy, next day for free anywhere in Ontario with direct to door delivery.”
According to Donald and Mohamed, as Canadians adjust to a new reality and work to establish new daily routines, consistent access to healthcare and medications takes on even more importance. With easy access to virtual and direct-to-door prescription delivery, patients will no longer have to take a day off from work, make childcare arrangements or wait in line for their prescriptions. In addition, for those living in rural areas or vacationing at the cottage, The Health Depot and Lyte Medical will bring healthcare to Canadians at home, wherever that may be.
