Integrated drug procurement firm Trxade Group (NASDAQ: MEDS) on Tuesday launched a one-of-its-kind platform that brings together various services such as COVID-19 risk assessment, PPE shopping, and telehealth for its corporate customers.
The mobile dashboard, christened Bonum+, is part of Trxade’s Bonum Health unit and allows companies to streamline PPE purchases, besides keeping a track on employee risk profiles. The platform also leverages artificial intelligence capabilities to connect employees with certified physicians.
Bonum Health President Ashton Maaraba said, “This platform resolves a fundamental trust problem impacting employer’s safety and security policies, allowing companies to more effectively combat COVID-19 concerns in the workplace.”
He added that Bonum Health is looking forward to expanding the tool’s capabilities to include other key features including prescription concierge services.
