MediSwipe Announces Deal with 800 Commerce and LifeApps to Build Mobile Medical Apps

MediSwipe, a provider of patient security and financial products relating to medical marijuana, and 800 Commerce Inc., a mobile marketing and payments company, have announced a proposed strategic alliance with LifeApps Digital Media Inc. to produce mobile medical apps.

MediSwipe has executed a preliminary letter of intent to form the alliance. The alliance will create two iOS and Android apps, GetRx, which will match medical marijuana patients with doctors, and My800Doctor, which will allow patients to find doctors, set appointments and receive updates on their prescriptions.

“We are extremely pleased to have signed a preliminary agreement towards entering a partnership with LifeApps for the launch and extension of our mobile brand for GetRx and My800Doctor for iOS and Android. LifeApps is a leading provider of smartphone applications, and is approved across all platforms. We look forward to launching the GetRx app for our consumers. We believe our timing is crucial and will be a meaningful revenue stream for our company based on new legislation regarding dispensaries. We will now be the first application to match patients with independent caregivers as required under the new legislation," B. Michael Friedman, CEO of MediSwipe, said.

“We believe that LifeApps has developed the perfect app development platform and tools with which to partner with MediSwipe and 800 Commerce for the creation of their mHealth apps," Robert Gayman, CEO for LifeApps Digital Media Inc. said.

 "Our health and wellness platform and design/programming team are perfectly suited to deliver the features, functionality and user friendly experience that GetRx and My800Doctor require."

"We believe LifeApps is uniquely qualified as a partner to create apps that can fit a variety of needs in the medical transaction sector," Friedman said.

Friedman cited the success of LifeApps’ previous applications as one of the reasons for proposing the deal. The company’s YouWorkOut held the top spot in Apple’s “Health, Mind and Body” section of the App Store for two weeks at the end of December and the beginning of January, and has been in the top 10 for eight weeks.

“LifeApps has the technical expertise to provide the solutions the mobile market needs," Friedman said.
