The Canadian Foundation For Pharmacy and Cameron Stewart LifeScience Form Ongoing Relationship to Support Innovation in Canadian Pharmacy Practice
Mississauga, Ontario (April 15, 2009) -The Canadian Foundation for Pharmacy, Cameron Stewart LifeScience Inc. and ClaimSecure Inc. are pleased to announce that they have signed an agreement that will provide ongoing funding support for innovation in pharmacy practice.
Cameron Stewart LifeScience, along with its partner ClaimSecure Inc, provides electronic drug sampling capabilities to the pharmaceutical industry. Instead of obtaining drug samples directly from their physician, patients are provided with a coupon, card or voucher to be redeemed for the free product sample at their pharmacy. This innovative approach to sampling pharmaceutical products is considered safer for the patient, primarily due to the inclusion of the professional pharmacist in the process. As well, electronic sampling has the added benefit of being more environmentally friendly due to the elimination of drug sample packaging and shipping.
Each time a patient fulfills a sample at a Canadian pharmacy using the Cameron Stewart LifeScience / ClaimSecure system, Cameron Stewart and ClaimSecure will donate a portion of the transaction revenue to The Canadian Foundation for Pharmacy.
“Our approach to drug product sampling involves and recognizes the importance of the services provided by professional pharmacists. Providing support for continued innovation in pharmacy practice is good for healthcare consumers and is fully aligned with our business model.” stated Cameron Stewart President Craig Martin.
“The Canadian Foundation for Pharmacy welcomes the innovative support provided by Cameron Stewart LifeScience. Our donor base includes many pharmaceutical industry partners and individual pharmacists that support our mission to advance the profession of pharmacy “added Dayle Acorn, Executive Director of The Canadian Foundation for Pharmacy.
