Following its well-deserved success in Acquisition International’s 2021 Global Excellence Awards, we got in touch with Jazmine Parris to find out more about one of the best speciality pharmaceutical companies in Canada today. ased in Mississauga, NKS Health are committed to offering innovative programmes, exceptional service, and superior value for its clients. Going into further detail, Jazmine begins by providing a brief overview of the firm and offers more insight into its clientele. “Located in Mississauga, NKS Health provides high-quality services by strategically focusing on chronic autoimmune and neurological conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis, gastrointestinal diseases, dermatological diseases, stroke rehabilitation, migraines, and multiple sclerosis. In addition to our speciality pharmacy services, we can also provide personalised door-to-door home deliveries, drug information and counselling, in-home medication training and physician and patient support including biologic screening.” As an organisation dedicated to programme innovation and R&D, NKS Health delivers superior treatment solutions for its clients to earn a premium reputation with patients, physicians, and medication manufacturers, which Jazmine is keen to highlight. “Here at NKS Health, our vision is to empower patients managing complex diseases with a specialised healthcare team, supported by the most successful programmes, and testing to achieve the best possible outcomes. NKS Health truly creates a complete patient experience as it works with patients, physicians, clinics, hospitals, and nursing homes on all aspects of treatment.” Operating in the Canadian pharmaceutical industry can be a challenging experience, however as Jazmine goes on to explain, extending its presence across Canada and its client-focused approach has allowed the firm to distance itself from the crowd. “With 80 locations across Canada, we are now able to better serve the health needs of the entire country. Additionally, our dedicated team of customer service personnel ensure accurate and timely delivery of medications to hospitals, clinics, and patients throughout Toronto (GTA), Hamilton, Ottawa, London and the Niagara area.” B NKS Assist is a patient support programme led by Mick McPherson, and as Jazmine explains further, this offering is a further unique selling point for the firm. “Currently, our NKS Assist programmes are available to oncology departments and spasticity clinics. For oncology, clients can expect ongoing multi-brand programme management, reimbursement assistance oversight, weekly reviews and ongoing strategy and tactical recommendations. For spasticity clinics, clients can expect support with clinic assessments and treatment administration, enrolment, and consent record management, NAPRA compliant medicine reconstitution and delivery, and monthly reporting of KPI’s and PV.” Regarding the internal culture in place, NKS Health are committed to supporting each other whenever possible as Jazmine points out. “Here at NKS Health, the company culture is very friendly and without any hesitation we all try to muck in. The team at NKS Health are simply a great group of people!” Bringing the interview to a close, Jazmine discusses the firm’s approach to recruitment going forward before outlining some of its plans for 2021 and beyond. “When it comes to recruitment, we generally hire through Indeed and then train new staff members accordingly. Moving forward, we plan to expand even more with a new headquarters to come. Growth is the big word for 2021 and the future.” Company: NKS Health Inc Contact: Jazmine Parris Website: Nov20593
