Telus Health said it is adding important new functionality to its existing health technology portfolio through its acquisition of an interest in the underlying technology of the ZRx Prescriber from Quebec-based ZoomMed.
ZRx Prescriber is an intuitive web-based prescriber that allows physicians to use a mobile device to quickly and accurately write and deliver prescriptions for patients while accessing the patient´s insurance coverage information directly at the moment of prescription.
With the acquisition of ZoomMed´s ZRx prescriber, Telus Health will become the first Canadian healthcare technology company to offer insurance coverage validation nationally at the moment of prescription.
