We will also develop new and expanded services in the areas of chronic care management and remote patient monitoring. We have done a great job identifying such opportunities in the past years with our testing business as an example, which helped us during the pandemic to improve our cash flow and liquidity, and we’re extremely excited to enter the remote patient monitoring market. We are in the process of finalizing the development of our RPM platform and expect to be ready for the launch of our RPM solutions during the third quarter of 2022.”

Our focus on growth and operational excellence has allowed us to retain a status of performance as a Five-Star pharmacy, which will maximize our reimbursements and will allow us to earn performance bonuses with certain payors. This positive trend is already showing in our data. We also see a significant uptick in new patient acquisition numbers, more than in previous quarters, including patients testing positive for COVID-19 looking for the latest and most effective therapies to treat the virus.”
