LOS ANGELES, April 1, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MediSwipe Inc. ( www.MediSwipe.com ) (OTCQB:MWIP), a patient security solutions and financial products company for the medicinal marijuana and health care industry, today announced the opening of the second patient certification center within the state of Michigan in downtown Detroit by end of this week. The company has acquired through a long term lease agreement approximately 3,000 square feet of a former chiropractic clinic within the Blaine Hospital Building at 2151 East Jefferson Avenue. The property includes access to a full pharmacy and emergency care facility on the premises. The first patient certification center located within Washtenaw county in Ann Arbor is presently open and will be taking patients as of this week. The first of two patient and wellness centers operated by MediSwipe are now branded as "The Certification Station," with plans for additional locations in Massachusetts following the recent passage and guidelines for medicinal marijuana legislation and San Diego, California.
The Certification Stations will be a full service facility, allowing patients to receive guidance in filing required documents to the state in applying for state medical marijuana ID cards, receive consultations through on location doctors and physicians for state certification as well as providing digitization and management of medical records within the MediSwipe system on behalf of registered caregivers. The Certification Stations will also allow for a central point for the 27,000 caregivers within the state to register within the MediSwipe data management system, for maintenance and data management of the patient count of each caregiver. Doctor consults and education will also be provided through the Company's telehealth platform and a HIPAA compliant secure messaging application for both doctors and patients of the Certification Stations is now available and free to patients as a download on iTunes and Android stores by searching "MIsecuremessages."
