LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwired - August 15, 2013) - MediSwipe Inc. (www.MediSwipe.com) (MWIP), the leader in Compassionate Care Technology Solutions for the medicinal marijuana industry today announced that the Company has signed an exclusive license and formed a joint alliance with The Medical Cannabis Network to operate, market and administrate the premier online physician and patient registry www.MarijuanaDoctors.com. This is the largest online portal and registry for medicinal marijuana patients and physicians in the US. This exclusive license and joint venture shall be dedicated to delivering compassionate care services in regulated jurisdictions throughout the US and now in 20 states and the District of Columbia.
The exclusive license and joint alliance enables MediSwipe to provide administration, market and share revenues in all registrations of patients, physicians, digital record storage, advertising and includes participation in additional leading online portals including www.Potlocator.com, www.StrainBrain.com, and others.
The site www.MarijuanaDoctors.com was founded to act as the trusted gateway for patients searching for medical marijuana treatment in legal medical marijuana states, now totaling twenty. The unique and technically advanced portal provides patients a variety of online services in selecting a doctor and setting an appointment for a medical marijuana evaluation including detailed profile information, scheduling information, and ratings and reviews.
MarijuanaDoctors.com is dedicated to legitimizing the process for the booking and selection of medical marijuana doctors by standardizing the criteria and selection process for doctors allowed to join our trusted network of quality physicians.
MediSwipe will also focus on providing comprehensive scheduling and marketing services for doctors that are both already established medical marijuana physicians as well as those looking to expand their practices into alternative medicine.
Users of the site must be 18 years of age to use the appointment booking services. Additionally, the information provided on MarijuanaDoctors.com is designed to complement, not replace, the relationship between a patient and his/her own physician.
"In light of the recent positive news coverage on CNN's special report and legislative trends in our industry, we are extremely pleased to move forward in this exclusive relationship and joint venture with MCN. The combination of talent, technology and industry expertise which MediSwipe and MCN bring together shall deliver outstanding value for physicians and patients. This partnership will accelerate MediSwipe's business model, as we emerge as the premier online network for physician listings, appointments, advertising and marketing. Our mobile platform and payment processing network will streamline physician billing and patient services. We believe this joint venture shall make MediSwipe the largest provider of digital patient management and physician certifications in the nation; as we establish our Company as the leader in offering vertical services to patients and medical professionals while legitimizing the marketplace for dispensaries and medicinal businesses," stated B. Michael Friedman, CEO of MediSwipe.
"We are very excited to have MediSwipe handling our sales. This will further expand our physician database in order to serve the thousands of inquiries we receive each day. MediSwipe has the unique opportunity to bring the Marijuana Doctors' caregiver portal into the state of Michigan as a safe access solution due to the fact that dispensaries have been restricted in the state. Our technical team will now begin to mine through the data of geographical hot spots of terminal auto immune diseases and which strains will be able to offset their side effects. This reporting is the most recent upgrade to Marijuana Doctors' web and mobile application. Our mobile application features a patient symptom tracker, referred to as Titrate THC, that was created to help doctors understand how medical marijuana is affecting their patients. It is hoped pharmaceutical companies will also benefit from learning how the different molecular make ups of the varying types of medical grade marijuana will interact with individuals and diseases," stated Jason Draizin, CEO of the Medical Cannabis Network.
