Elixir 420 Software Platform is an innovative health network platform of e-Prescribing for medical cannabis, the world’s first patient-centric health ecosystem addressing THC/CBD.
“Cannabis access is associated with reduced rates of opioid use and abuse, opioid-related hospitalizations, opioid-related traffic fatalities, opioid-related drug treatment admissions, and opioid-related overdose deaths,” said Sylvain Duvernay, Chief Executive Officer of KDA.
Finally, the Elixir 420 Software Platform will reach more than 70,000 physicians that do not prescribe medical cannabis in Canada.1
Elixir 420 Software Platform features are:
- To provide intuitive educational tools to physicians and patients for learning about medical cannabis and its viability as a treatment option.
- To equip physicians with the most up-to-date clinical guidelines and support network so they can prescribe and monitor cannabinoid treatment plans with confidence.
- To lower the administrative burden for everyone and enable the patient to be instantly submitted to the Licensed Producer of their choosing.
