CloudMD Partners with Apotex Latinoamérica to Drive Expansion of Health Educational Resources Across the Region
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, November 3, 2021 – CloudMD Software & Services Inc. (TSXV: DOC, OTC: DOCRF, Frankfurt: 6PH) (the “Company” or “CloudMD”), a healthcare technology company transforming the delivery of care, is excited to announce an expanded partnership with Apotex, a Canadian-based global pharmaceutical company, to provide Apotex Latinoamérica with its flagship IMD Health digital education resource platform to support doctors, patients and individuals in Latin America and provide access to its robust database of trusted health educational resources. The IMD platform will be available in Mexico, Costa Rica, Panama and Nicaragua.
For the last 25 years, Latin America has been a key focus area for Apotex with the goal of improving the health and well-being of patients in the region by providing affordable, innovative, and high-quality solutions.
The IMD educational platform is Canada’s largest digital education health database with over 5,600 medical topics (anatomy, conditions and procedures) in a simple-to-use format with over 110,000 resources in a variety of formats including articles, images, infographics and short videos, in several languages (including Spanish). The content is customized by audience, so healthcare professionals or patients can learn more valuable information about an illness, treatment, or other healthcare topics.
Together, CloudMD and Apotex Latinoamérica have partnered to provide better access to healthcare resources for doctors and patients in Latin America. The partnership focuses on two core platforms: (1) an integration into a Apotex-operated physician web portal and, (2) integration into a public facing web portal. CloudMD’s educational platform will provide access to trusted, peer-reviewed healthcare resources that will assist and support doctors and patients throughout their care journey. The platform has developed Spanish as a core language option on the offering which provides further opportunities for global expansion.
“Over the last 25 years, we have been committed to improving the health and well-being of patients and families in Latin America. Our Partnership with CloudMD to adopt its IMD Health education platform reinforces our commitment to provide trusted healthcare resources to support and educate individuals through their health journeys. Trusted health information is essential to patient health, and we are excited to support our doctors, patients and the general public with access to this credible digital health information,” commented Américo García, Vice-President and General Manager, Apotex Latinoamérica.
Dr. Essam Hamza, CEO of CloudMD commented, “We are excited to announce an expansion of our partnership with Apotex into Latin America. Our IMD Health education platform has a robust database, and we feel very fortunate to be able to provide credible, trusted healthcare resources to practitioners and patients to support their health needs.”
