Discount Drug Mart and iMedicare Announce New Partnership

NEW YORK & MEDINA, Ohio–(BUSINESS WIRE)–#DrugMart–iMedicare, the leading Medicare plan comparison platform serving
community pharmacies, and Discount Drug Mart, “Ohio’s Hometown
Pharmacy”, announced their partnership today to begin offering the
iMedicare service to customers in its 73 pharmacy locations.

Discount Drug Mart is dedicated to implementing innovative pharmacy
software services to provide customers with superior patient care. The
partnership between iMedicare and Discount Drug Mart will expand the
current pharmacy service offerings to assist patients with evaluating
Medicare plan options based on their specific medications and needs.

“iMedicare has proven valuable for our pharmacists when providing
support for our patients trying to navigate the maze that Medicare plan
selection can be,” said Jason Briscoe, Drug Mart’s Director, Pharmacy
Operations. “The user-friendly platform provides accurate information
within a matter of seconds. As we continue to expand our role as
healthcare providers, there is nothing more valuable to a pharmacist
than time.”

The affiliation between iMedicare and Discount Drug Mart will provide
pharmacists with access to automated software that seamlessly integrates
into pharmacies’ current workflow. Implementing the timesaving plan
comparison platform, which delivers easy-to-understand information about
local and national Medicare plans, is imperative to ensuring long-term
pharmacy success and improved patient outcomes.

“We are excited to partner with Discount Drug Mart to help expand the
superior care they already offer their patients,” said Flaviu Simihaian,
CEO of iMedicare. “With 10,000 folks turning 65 every day, the
importance of personalized counseling has never been greater, yet the
time a pharmacist has available is more constrained. iMedicare empowers
pharmacies to offer that quality consultation while also remaining in
workflow and saving time.”
