HEALTHTAB™ – KEY DEVELOPMENTS

Key developments have included:

  • 166 HealthTab™ systems were operating in Shoppers Drug Mart® and Loblaw family stores including pharmacist walk-in clinics as of September 30, 2022, 144 in Ontario and 15 in British Columbia, 4 in Nova Scotia and 1 in New Brunswick. Additionally, the Company was honoured to have Healthtab™ placed in the first pharmacist-led primary healthcare clinic located in Lethbridge, Alberta. Not only was this the first clinic, it was also the first system placed in a Real Canadian Superstore®, as well as its first Alberta location.
  • As of the date of this report 416 participating Shoppers Drug Mart® pharmacies and Loblaw family stores, have now received their HealthTab™ systems and are offering screening tests to patients. This innovative practice in healthcare delivery is expected to expand, as provinces struggle to recruit more family physicians. The program's primary focus is to screen patients at-risk for diabetes and cardiovascular disease. In-store signage and print material will let customers know they are able to request HealthTab™ tests, and existing patients will be made aware through direct outreach from their Shoppers Drug Mart® or Real Canadian Superstore® pharmacist based on their health profile.
  • As of July 1 st , 2022, the Government of Ontario brought into effect an expanded scope of practice for community pharmacists in the province, joining Alberta in this growing and popular approach. This includes limited prescribing for minor ailments, as well as the ability to perform certain point-of-care tests to assist patients with managing chronic disease. Approved tests include glucose, HbA1c and lipids, all of which HealthTab™ currently offers with the Abbott Afinion 2™. Also announced as part of this plan in Ontario, is a second stage of scope modifications, which will begin on January 1, 2023.
  • On September 29 th the BC Government announced significant changes to the scope of practice of community pharmacists with an implementation date expected in Spring 2023. While the current announcements covers some minor ailment prescribing power, extending prescription renewals and certain injections, the BC Ministry of Health is continuing to work with the BC College of Pharmacists on further moves which could align the province with others who have already allowed for more primary care services to be located in pharmacy, such as Alberta and Ontario.
  • During the pilot with Shoppers Drug Mart®, over 15,000 HealthTab™ tests were completed for more than 6,900 patients.  The data collected confirmed that the patients tested had a high prevalence of previously undiagnosed diabetes, pre-diabetes and heart disease and significant near-term risk for major health events. Almost 60 percent of patients needed an intervention to better manage their chronic disease. On average, 31 percent received a new chronic medication, 28 percent required a change in their current medication, and 235 patients were newly identified as diabetic. Patients also reported in post surveys that they valued receiving this information from their pharmacists, and those pharmacists indicated that HealthTab™ enabled an increase in the value of services they were able to provide to their patients.
  • Developed a quality assurance program with a third-party reference laboratory to offer HealthTab pharmacies industry leading validation for point-of-care instruments and test consumables.
  • Developing new domestic pilot programs with national pharmacy chains.
  • Developing international programs and securing supplier agreements.
  • Evaluating wearable and evaluating continuous glucose monitoring integration.
