TORONTO, Nov. 23, 2015 /CNW/ - New tech start-up PopRx announced today that it is now able to service the Greater Toronto Area (GTA). PopRx, the Uber of prescriptions, is a free app that delivers your prescription medications with just a picture on your phone. It's fast, easy and free.
PopRx founder Dr. Ali Esmail, "We are excited to continue to expand our services to the Toronto market. We are the first and only Canadian company that offers this service, allowing customers the freedom to get their prescriptions, refills and pill reminders for free with a simple click on their phone. Whether you are a busy parent, or have ongoing prescription needs, you no longer have go to the pharmacy and wait in lines for your medications. PopRx delivers right to your door, for free. We know the Toronto market is a big opportunity for PopRx and we are pleased to be working directly with local independent pharmacies across the region, both increasing local business in neighbourhood pharmacies and ensuring lower dispensing fees for customers."
First launched in Winnipeg, PopRx was met with astounding market demand and was the first successful pitch on the new CBC Dragon's Den NextGen where Dragon's Nicole Verkindt and Harley Finkelstein chose to invest. Moving into the Toronto market is the first step to taking PopRx national. It is the second health app from Dr. Ali Esmail who believes that "the future of medicine will be shaped by technology and the medical entrepreneur." He is an Otolaryngology resident with expertise in medical innovation and software design technologies. He holds a Masters of Business Entrepreneurship and Technology, engineering from the University of Waterloo.
"PopRx is a great marriage of technology and consumer focused service in the health sector, which so rarely sees innovation for the user. In ten years, no one will remember that you had to go to the pharmacy to get your medications. PopRx offers convenience and free service now to your door step and we are working on providing additional user benefits, like on-demand pharmacy chats with your smart phone or tablet, drug allergies, and interactions," concluded Esmail.
