Pharmacy BC is proud to be a leader in technology and health as we implement telemedicine system MedviewMD. Telemedicine has updated the traditional doctor-patient dynamic, allowing for greater access, engagement and responsibility of patients in their own healthcare. MedviewMD will seek to utilize the latest iteration of telemedicine technology to deliver the best interactive healthcare possible. Telemedicine eliminates any geographical barriers to healthcare access. Rural, remote or urban centres share equal access to medical assistance and expertise through telemedicine. Studies have shown that videoconferencing and image sharing between patients and physicians helps to create a “participatory environment”, which in turn increases adherence to medical therapies and improves patient health outcomes.

The combined expertise and knowledge of the Pharmacist, Nurses and Physicians can help improve patient safety, reduce time consuming and costly emergency department and hospital admissions and improve the general health of the community while reducing costs to the healthcare system. For the patient, visiting a MedviewMD ‘Patient Studio’ at Pharmacy BC is essentially the same as visiting a traditional doctor’s office. Trained nursing staff are onsite to provide first-hand support for the patient and relay information to the attending doctor, who interacts with the patient via video link. The location of the ‘Patient Studio’ in a pharmacy helps to streamline the healthcare process as prescriptions can be picked up on site, and allows the pharmacy to become a ‘center of care’ within the community.
