ZoomMed president and CEO Yves Marmet noted this agreement is another significant stride in the right direction for the company and its shareholders, adding a new major stakeholder of the healthcare sector to the company’s communication network.

"We are very proud to partner with such a prestigious organization as Desjardins Insurance," Marmet added.

Desjardins Insurance group and business insurance product development and marketing vice-president Nathalie Laporte noted through this project, the company intends to improve its plan members’ client experience and help them save money with more cost-effective treatment options, 60- to 90-day prescription refills and by providing their physicians with their insurance plan information.

”This innovative approach will also reduce the risk of errors and speed up the prior authorization process,” Laporte added.
