Company Background

Reformulary Group is a healthcare company, founded in Toronto in 2011 by Helen Stevenson. The Company’s most notable innovation is its proprietary list of drugs (formulary) – the Reformulary – which helps Canadians make sense of medicine.

The Reformulary is curated based on the trusted advice of an independent panel of doctors and pharmacists that reviews massive amounts of research and evidence about each drug. We put all that research and advice built into our formulary into a digital platform, called DrugFinder. Both an app and desktop tool, DrugFinder searches the Reformulary, helping plan members – and consumers – make smart drug choices and take control of their health.

Our analytics business uses claims data for 14.5 million Canadians, comprising about 1.5 billion data records. Our subscription-based solutions include rapid access data insights to help pharma make more informed decisions, and a predictive modelling tool that charts the pipeline of new high-cost drugs and predicts the impact on large drug plans, or group of drug plans.

In 2018, the Company launched Cannabis Standard, a technology platform designed to help Canadians make sense of medical cannabis and find the recommended medical cannabis product for their condition and symptom, as well as track the impact of medical cannabis on their health.
