Reformulary Group Announces Partnership with VIVO Cannabis
TORONTO, July 6, 2020 - Reformulary Group, a Canadian healthcare company, today announced that it has entered into a non-exclusive partnership with VIVO Cannabis Inc. to advance patient outcomes via Reformulary’s Cannabis Standard™ platform.
VIVO has agreed to provide clinical support, through the Company’s Harvest Medicine clinics, to patients who access Cannabis Standard. Cannabis Standard is an ecosystem of expert recommendations, patient-powered tools, and independent information to help Canadians and healthcare professionals make smarter, more informed decisions about choosing medical cannabis. The Cannabis Standard website is set to be relaunched in mid-July.
“Cannabis Standard applies the same formula that we’ve used so successfully on the prescription medication side. We gathered a panel of independent medical experts, conducted a comprehensive review all of the available evidence globally, and created user-friendly tools to help Canadians navigate the medical cannabis space,” said Helen Stevenson, Reformulary Group founder and CEO. “At its core, Cannabis Standard is about helping patients benefit from and contribute to the growing base of medical cannabis research, and we look forward to working closely with the team at VIVO to advance patient outcomes."
More information will be released in the coming days and weeks in relation to this partnership, and how Cannabis Standard patients can benefit from Harvest Medicine’s clinical support services.
