Through the minor ailment prescribing tool, we’ve been able to help over 300 patients and prevent walk-in visits at emergency rooms, thus improving our community’s access to acute treatment.

The MedEssist team contacted us in early 2021, but we were overwhelmed and apprehensive about signing up for anything new. In January 2023, we explored implementing their Minor Ailment program in our pharmacy to help manage the demand and promotion of our new scope of practice. Since then, MedEssist has proven invaluable in helping us promote our pharmacy, with over 200+ patients interacting with our pharmacy website on their own, reducing phone calls at the pharmacy and giving us better visibility of our online presence.

Through the minor ailment prescribing tool, we’ve been able to help over 300 patients and prevent walk-in visits at emergency rooms, thus improving our community’s access to acute treatment. We’ve even met over 70+ new patients through MedEssist. During the summer, our entire pharmacy team invested in a training session to learn how to optimize our specific use case at our store. Meeting new patients since then has made the platform worth the investment instead of running expensive ad campaigns. While in practice, it's also been convenient to communicate easily with patients via custom text messages without playing phone tag!
