ENTHUSIASTIC ADOPTER OF MEDICAL CANNABIS OR A HEALTHY SKEPTIC?
EITHER WAY, OPTIMIST DELIVERS A NEW LEVEL OF CONFIDENCE
PRECISE DOSAGE CONTROL COMBINED WITH AN EVER EXPANDING DATABASE OF PATIENT EFFICACY STATISTICS
OPTIMIZES MEDICAL CANNABIS TREATMENT LIKE NEVER BEFORE
OPTIMIST HAS MANY BENEFITS
Metered Dose Inhalers provide higher bio-availability than alternative delivery methods, requiring less medicine to achieve the desired effect. Time to onset is extremely quick as approximately 50% of the medicine immediately deposits in the alveoli providing rapid relief while the remaining 50% settles in the bronchial tubes, extending medicine release times and effectiveness.
OPTIMIST IS LEGITIMIZING MEDICAL CANNABIS
Regulatory submission efforts for Health Canada and FDA are underway and expected to be approved soon. No other delivery device can provide this level of confidence to Physicians and their Patients.
An sMDI INHALER IS THE PREFERRED DELIVERY METHOD
Smoking and vaping medical cannabis will heat, carbonize and destroy most of the beneficial cannabinoids in the medicine and make it much less effective for the patient. Heated inhalation also creates hazardous side effects such as popcorn lung, pneumonia and other lung infections and many others have yet to be determined. An atomizing inhaler, on the other hand, is non-heated and non-destructive to the cannabinoids. Ingesting MC requires larger doses of medication and dosing is very inconsistent as a result of individual metabolism rates, the gastric process destroying cannabinoids and the medicine also must pass through the liver before making its way into the bloodstream, delaying and further reducing effectiveness.
THE CLINICIAN INTERACTS WITH OPTIMIST REMOTELY
The Optimist online physician’s dashboard is set up to monitor each individual patient by connecting to the Optimist smart inhaler and an app on the patient’s smartphone.This allows tracking of individual patient treatment regimens to ensure and increase patient adherence. The physician can remotely adjust the quantity and interval of medication delivery to the patient's needs without an office visit. A lockout function prevents over-medication, unauthorized use and accidental dispensing. Precise dosing allows for physicians to now accurately prescribe and evaluate patient treatment plans.
OPTIMIZED FOR PATIENTS / OPTIMIZED FOR CAREGIVERS
The device can be set to sound an alert when it’s time to take the medication ensuring proper adherence. An inhaler is an instantly recognized form of medication delivery that allows for greater social acceptance. So moms can put essential medication into their child's backpack without concern. Adults in the work-place aren't perceived as vaping when taking MDI medication. Coworkers immediately know it’s a medicine inhaler, not a recreational one. Because the inhaler allows for less public scrutiny, patients are more likely to correctly and regularly take their medication. Studies show this leads to better treatment adherence.
it simply works smarter
The Optimist online HIPAA-compliant data collection system aggregates patient feedback to help clinicians understand the effectiveness and side effects of particular formulations. It's simple and easy for patients to rate medications on their smart phones. The Optimist app also integrates data from health monitoring devices like Fitbit to cross-reference medication performance against heart rate, sleep patterns and physical activity. The results are unprecedented amounts of data for determining more effective treatment regimens, and actionable insights for formulators to create more effective medications.
EMPOWERING the clinician
Using the Optimist app, patients input condition & symptom specific feedback the clinician can use to tailor the treatment plan. This information can be used to remotely adjust the smart inhaler to alter the treatment regimen. Optimist connects to the clinician’s office software to help manage refills and patient appointments.
