The Neighbourhood Pharmacy At Your Fingertips.
In 1998, the owners of ADV-Care Pharmacy Inc. realized the emergence of internet technology and its potential application to provide convenience and privacy to patients allowing them to order and receive their pharmaceutical medication in the privacy of their own offices, homes or travel destinations.
In July 1999. ADV-Care Pharmacy Inc. was established using IBM Net.Commerce software, the company was first to develop its pharmacy service using the internet and launched its website in late 2000. In January 2000 ADV-Care pharmacy obtained its accreditation licensing from Ontario College of pharmacists.
The website was the first to publish the Canadian prescription and OTC prices on the net, that allowed patients to compare the cost of their medication and send their prescription from the privacy of their home and receive their medications at the address of their choice. This necessitated a rigorous front and back end authentication of patients, their profile and their doctors to guarantee utmost safety and expedited fulfillment.
During 2000 and 2001 the company continued developing its processes and developed a fully automated integrated front end (website) and back end filling process that guarantees the safety of filling a prescription on the internet and tracking its processing stages until medication is received by the customer.
In 2001-2003 many Canadian Snowbirds and US residents discovered the convenience and cost savings of our service and started transferring and ordering their medications from ADV-Care Pharmacy. As a leading provider of this unique service, the company applied for non-resident pharmacy licenses in Florida and Rhode Island states to meet this demand.
In 2003, many employee and private groups signed up an exclusive service arrangement that saved up to 50% of their healthcare costs. ADV-Care Pharmacy became one of the top 5 companies in Canada that offered their prescription service online. Representatives of state governments in the U.S. visited our facilities in an effort to develop a state sponsored program for US citizens.
In 2003 – 2007, ADV-Care Pharmacy continued to expand its market for both Canadian residents and non residents and improved its services quality and delivery time of medication, thus improved second to none its fulfillment infra structure and implementing many patient safety and convenience services like Automated Refill Reminders, Automatic Drug Interaction check and online tracking of orders processing. ADV-Care now can deliver new maintenance prescription medication in 3-5 days from the time it is ordered.
In 2007 the company moved its operation to a new address and expanded its industry affiliates and providers network of pharmaceutical manufacturers of specialty drugs.
In 2010 the company in partnership with PK+ Healthcare Innovation launched its PTM+ kiosk service, bringing pharmacy services to company offices and condominium residents. Thus taking a step forward in patient privacy, convenience and confidentiality saving waiting time for patients and improving prescription-filling efficiency.
