Blackhawk Growth Corp. is preparing to launch Talk to Doc RX — an on-line pharmacy delivery service directly interconnected to the company’s recently launched telemedicine platform. This feature will allow doctors utilizing the platform to send their patients prescriptions directly to participating pharmacies that will then be adding the additional service of delivering fulfilled prescriptions directly to their patient’s homes.
In addition, Blackhawk has been in discussions with a logistics delivery partner that has a pre-existing relationship with a notable national pharmacy chain to further expand on the direct-to-home prescription fulfillment. The launch of this feature is part of the Corporation’s ongoing efforts to expand the telemedicine platform and gain further investment exposure to the healthcare sector. Use of this feature in particular provinces or territories of Canada is dependent on licensing arrangements made by the participating pharmacy in that jurisdiction.
“Delivery of prescriptions amid the Covid-19 pandemic is not only an essential need and a prudent next step for Blackhawk’s telemedicine offerings but also a beneficial service to be utilized in a post Covid-19 world,” says Frederick Pels, chief executive officer of Blackhawk. “The launch of this direct to consumer delivery extension provides Blackhawk’s shareholders with added value for our investment in www.talktodoc.ca and further establishes our footprint in Canada’s growing telehealth infrastructure.”
This feature was an initiative built in tandem with Heally, Inc., a San Francisco based telemedicine company. Details of the partnership with Heally, Inc. are currently being contemplated between both companies and once an agreement has been reached the Corporation will provide further details.
“This was a natural next step for us”, adds Frederick Pels. “This extension is fully built and the team at Heally, Inc. is ready to launch once we have secured our delivery and pharmacy partners. The value-add here is significant for the future of Blackhawk and is another great step forward for us as we expand our interest in the smart healthcare space. The ability to work with the team at Heally has given us the required flexibility to make an impact so Canadians can stay safe and healthy in these uncertain times. We truly believe that seeing a doctor virtually is the way of the future and having a pharmacy deliver your medication to you without having to leave your home will set us apart from everyone else in the industry.”
Blackhawk is also excited to announce that its common shares have been listed on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange under the trading symbol 0JJ. The Corporation’s common shares continue to be listed on the Canadian Securities Exchange under the trading symbol BLR.
“Many of the investment opportunities presented to Blackhawk have an international reach,” says Frederick Pels, CEO of Blackhawk. “Listing on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange gives us the ability to expand our shareholder base throughout Europe. This is a major move towards furthering the objectives of improving our visibility within the investment community and increasing investor awareness globally. We look forward to exposing our story to new investors and keeping our shareholders abreast of our investment plans over the coming months.”
