Innovative self-serve pharmacy kiosks to be embedded in 17 additional locations across Central Florida
MedAvail Holdings, Inc. (Nasdaq: MDVL) (“MedAvail”), a technology-enabled pharmacy company, today announced that it has significantly expanded its partnership with IMA Medical Group, a provider of high quality primary medical and wellness services to seniors, with plans to open 17 additional SpotRx locations across central Florida.
In-clinic SpotRx kiosks and courier home delivery are expected to be available to patients across the IMA network in 21 IMA medical centers, including the four SpotRx locations previously announced in September. MedAvail plans to leverage its pharmacy hub in Orlando to deploy and service SpotRx kiosks to these medical centers and expects to complete deployment to these locations by early 2022. SpotRx Pharmacy is the retail pharmacy brand owned and operated by MedAvail in the United States, which deploys and operates the MedAvail MedCenters.
“We are excited to be expanding our partnership with IMA and broadening the convenience of our transformative pharmacy services to Medicare patients in Florida,” said Ed Kilroy, Chief Executive Officer of MedAvail. “We deployed five of the additional 17 medical centers announced today in the fourth quarter of 2021, with the balance expected to be installed in early 2022.”
MedAvail’s SpotRx Pharmacy business is primarily focused on the Medicare (65+ year old) market and the medical clinics where they receive care. The SpotRx MedCenter allows patients to virtually consult with a pharmacist and fill their medications within clinics, eliminating the need to visit a pharmacy. SpotRx also provides patients the option to have their medications delivered to their homes free of charge.
“After experiencing firsthand, the impactful difference our patients had with SpotRx embedded pharmacies in our clinics, we knew right away that SpotRx needed to be an integral part of our medical centers,” said Dr. Mark Leenay, Chief Executive Officer of IMA Medical Group. “We are thrilled to be able to offer this differentiated solution in all of our clinics and further our efforts in providing our patients with the highest standard of care.”
