The Leslie Group and Pillway Announce Partnership
Promoting Leading Edge Technology and Cost-effective Access to a Wide Range of Offerings
Effective November 1, Canada’s tech-first, full-service digital pharmacy Pillway, and independent Employee Benefits consulting firm The Leslie Group, will partner to promote and provide plan members with cost-effective access to a convenient digital pharmacy solution.
As Pillway becomes one of The Leslie Group’s preferred provider networks, this partnership will allow 42,500 employees across Canada to enjoy savings on every prescription medication, and plan sponsors will be able to stay further ahead of the cost curve.
Pillway’s advanced technology platform enhances patient experience by providing them complete access to a pharmacy at their fingertips. Simplifying the process, Pillway’s medication management program increases medication adherence rates by pre-sorting medications according to dose, date, and time into individual packets. Patients will be able to further personalize their experience with Pillway’s free digital Pharmacy mobile app, which allows them to see their medication schedule with automatic refill reminders, have unlimited access to pharmacists and more!
According to industry statistics, difficulties in receiving needed health care services include problems with scheduling appointments, long wait times, cost, services not available in the area, and transportation. 80% of Canadians that have experienced a difficulty in accessing health care service reported that their life was negatively affected. Providing more convenient access to medicines and health care support will improve employee health, ultimately increasing productivity, as well as reducing the number of claimed sick days.
“We are pleased to announce our partnership with Pillway, which provides our clients and plan members with an attractive and convenient digital pharmacy solution. This is an example of how The Leslie Group seeks to continuously add value for clients and incorporate strategies that contribute to plan sustainability,” said Matthieu Bedard, Vice President of Group Benefits.
“We are proud to bring on the Leslie Group as another great partner for Pillway. Their members will benefit from access to our full-service digital pharmacy along with our comprehensive chronic medication management program. We look forward to closely working with them.” said Lak Gill, CEO of Pillway.
