As quoted in the press release:


Under the terms of the agreement, MDM and the Company, agree to develop a Case Management and Education Services Program through Solace Health Network. The collaboration will develop suitable programs for group benefit beneficiaries using or considering the use of medical cannabis.  MDM will actively promote the program offering among its group benefit plan beneficiaries for patient reimbursement/coverage, patient assessment and enrollment, workflow and reporting mechanisms. Solace Health Network will provide navigation services for patient assessment, through either an in-clinic or a private telehealth visit at a patient chosen location.
