Sail – Bridging the Cannabis Knowledge Gap
Founded in 2014 as a subsidiary of MVC Technologies, Inc., and as the leading healthcare clinical decision support platform for the cannabis industry, Sail has established a healthcare technology company with a proven revenue model and positive cashflow from operations. Sail has a strong presence within North America developing knowledge-based applications to support clinicians and patients at the point of care, in making more informed decisions on the qualification, dosing and prescription of medical cannabis. With an initial raise of C$6m, Sail has a 2018 revenue run rate of C$11mm.
Helping patients, physicians, and clinics to access medical cannabis
At Sail, we understand there can be hesitancy when integrating medical cannabis into a clinician’s practice or patient’s treatment plan. Whether undue stigma, lack of experience or a perceived lack of clinically-validated data, that resistance is easy to overcome with the right tools. Our goal is to alleviate the questions and confusion surrounding medical cannabis, ensuring that the entire ecosystem has the necessary data and tools at the point-of-care to bring about a sense of comfort when achieving a new level of wellness for patients across the globe.
At our core, Sail is a healthcare technology platform that helps to increase the number of clinicians globally by providing guidelines and data for them to make the most informed decisions at the point-of-care. Acting as an intermediary between clinics and regulated vendors, our software connects patients, doctors, and clinics; acting as a hub of information, knowledge, and support in the complex world of medical cannabis.
The Sail Platform – through each of its applications – ingests and outputs data in real-time which can then be leveraged in aggregate form both by our clients, as well as other industry stakeholders. With more than 65,000 active patients currently in the system on an annual basis (over 250,000 patients since inception), we are uniquely suited to meet the business intelligence demands of every user, and every customer group either through dynamic dashboards or out-of-the-box reporting.
