WASHINGTON: Empower Clinics, a leading owner and operator of medical cannabis and wellness clinics in the US, announced that it is nearing completion of a telemedicine platform that will enable interested patients worldwide to connect with its specialized medical doctors.
Expected to launch in December via Empower’s Website, the telemedicine offering will make it easy for patients worldwide to speak directly with medical doctors about anything related to cannabis-based treatments as well as overall wellness. Patients will be able to select a doctor on-demand or can set a schedule for consultations engineered to take place via private video conference. Over time, the consultations will also involve online chat and other features to facilitate direct patient-doctor communication. Empower also plans to include veterinary options in the coming months, for those interested in discussing cannabis and wellness treatments for pets.
“Telemedicine leverages two of Empower’s greatest assets, in bringing together technology with Empower’s highly specialized medical doctors to provide patients with the expertise they need where and when they want it,” said Craig Snyder, Empower CEO. “This will provide an additional revenue stream for Empower while complementing our expanding physical footprint here in the US.”
In addition, Empower has completed its non-brokered private placement it announced publicly on October 19.
