Mirabel, February 8th 2021 - The pharmaceutical industry takes on another level today with the official launch of AIRIX, a new online platform from Quebec allowing its users to consult a pharmacist and to have medications delivered to their door everywhere in the province,  completely for free. The independent pharmacist Sami Soltan, founder and CEO of AIRIX, seeks to maximize and facilitate access to the new powers granted to the OPQ. 

« The COVID-19 pandemic has accelerated the transition towards online health consultations. More recently, the changes brought to the law on pharmacy ( Bill 31) conceded new important responsibilities to pharmacists. Based on these advances, the arrival of AIRIX facilitates access to health professionals », says Mr. Soltan, also pharmacist-owner in Mirabel. 


Rewards for everyone, thanks to the future of pharmacy


Accessible from any smartphone or online, AIRIX platform - already counting thousands of downloads - is connected to the patient’s pharmaceutical record. It allows patients everywhere in Quebec to save time and reduce their monthly health bill by receiving their prescriptions every three months and by reducing their traveling expenses back and forth to the pharmacy. 

As soon as the profile is created, the user can exchange directly with a pharmacist ( via text messages, phone calls or video calls), manage their prescriptions, consult their health record and have their medications delivered. All of that for free, anywhere they are. From their profile, the user can safely effectuate the payments of the amount that’s not covered by their health insurance. AIRIX can also be related to caregivers who can manage their family’s prescriptions from the comfort of their home. 

For the pharmacists, AIRIX is new tool to effectively join more people and focus on the services given to patients by surpassing the limit set by their store location. 

« Throughout the past 25 years, I occupied all the positions in a pharmacy. I have seen the industry transform itself, with business imperatives that keep on growing. However, I always kept in mind the essence of my mission as a pharmacist : serve patients in their path towards well-being. The launch of AIRIX, a brand new business model, makes me proud to be ale to offer an innovative solution that is going to simplify the life of all Quebecois and provide them with better health support », says Sami Soltan.
