Our mission is
to help pharmacists execute
advanced clinical services
As healthcare providers, pharmacists are uniquely accessible to provide clinical care. PharmAssess drives pharmacists to unlock their unique clinical potential, by creating solutions that empower pharmacists to execute their advanced scope of practice with ease and confidence.
As minor ailment prescribing becomes progressively adopted in Canada, PharmAssess supports pharmacists in making clinical decisions, automating administrative tasks, and strengthening patient relationships.
Interviewing 10 pharmacists in Saskatchewan, ailment assessment time ranges from 15-20 minutes per condition.
Upon demonstration of the PharmAssess minor ailment tool, pharmacists estimate they would save ~10 minutes of time per assessment, with our streamlined interface – a 2x boost in efficiency.
Community pharmacies are overburdened
A 2016 Canadian pharmacy summit showed that pharmacists struggle to provide advanced services because:
86% of pharmacists report insufficient time
92% report competing priorities in the pharmacy workplace
86% agree that lack of confidence is a barrier to using their expertise
“ PharmAssess returns time to busy pharmacists, allowing them to embrace clinical opportunities ”
