An Oakville-based company is receiving Economic Action Plan Research and Development funding to support their personal, in-home medication technology service. PharmaTrust Inc. will receive up to $300,000 to help develop MedHome, a personal device which will help patients safely and effectively manage their medications. The funding will also contribute to the enhancement of the company's current MedCentre™ infrastructure which makes use of advanced robotics, scanning and video-conference technology, to connect patients in real-time to a pharmacist in another location.
PharmaTrust Inc. also received $1,529,563 from NRC-IRAP in 2009 for the development of a telepharmacy prescription dispensing system, which led to the hiring of eight engineering personnel.
This is great news for Oakville, as it's very important to support local businesses. It helps create jobs, and keep current jobs in this great city!
