SAN FRANCISCO, June 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- HelloMD, the leading digital healthcare platform for medical marijuana patients, today announced that over 100 cannabis retail, product and delivery companies have embedded its white label doctors service into their websites. The streamlined medical / retail experience brings discrete delivery of legally compliant cannabis directly to patients everywhere.
The process of becoming a legal cannabis consumer used to be a daunting, time-consuming experience, that only truly motivated consumers would undertake. Inefficiencies, unnecessary paperwork, suspicion and possible privacy breaches kept many would-be consumers on the sidelines of medical cannabis.
Technology startup, HelloMD has lead the industry in bringing security, efficiency and convenience to both patients, retailers and (direct to consumer) product manufacturers. Now, potential customers can visit a retailer's or cannabis brand's website and be a legally compliant marijuana patient within 20 minutes of the decision to make a purchase. Doctors knowledgeable in cannabis are available seven days-a-week to provide quality medical consultations.
For the retailer, the entire experience is undertaken under their own branding, and the patient is automatically returned along with the necessary legal documentation, ready to complete a purchase. The wide adoption with over 100 brands now participating demonstrates the value to both consumer and retailer. HelloMD has received over 1,000 (5 star) reviews from satisfied patients since releasing the service in January.
"As both demand and competition increases, medical cannabis retailers are seeking better tools for on-ramping and retaining their patients," said Larry Lisser, Head of Business Development for HelloMD. "The HelloMD 'patient compliance as a service' has literally changed the way dispensaries and online collectives connect with patients, by turning what was traditionally an obstacle into a valuable marketing opportunity."
HelloMD collaborates with hundreds of cannabis businesses in various capacities. Of those, over 100 have deployed its White Label solution, including market leaders across the state such as Greenrush, Kushfly , Green Door West and Viva.
"Viva prides itself in helping first-time patients get comfortable with adding cannabis to their wellness regime," said Alex Ryan, co-founder of Viva. "Our HelloMD integration has been critical in simplifying the on-ramp of these patients, and provides a discreet and convenient experience that aligns perfectly with our approach."
HelloMD also recently launched its Answers platform, a unique web-based service that encourages patients anywhere to ask questions anonymously, and have them quickly answered by cannabis MD's, industry experts and brand ambassadors. The Answers platform is further amplifying partner benefits, enabling providers and brand to demonstrate expertise and expand their reach to prospective patients.
