The effort, which the CRC says would also help caregivers and health care providers participating in the state’s medicinal cannabis program, puts more patient information at their fingertips. Patients will be able to log in to their accounts; check the status of their ID card applications; consult the authorizations of health professionals; review purchase history; and add or change caregivers without calling the NJ-CRC.

“The current medical cannabis registry that we inherited from the Department of Health has been in use for 10 years,” said NJ-CRC Deputy Executive Director Kelly Anderson-Thomas. “In addition to being easier to navigate, the new platform will give patients access to their purchase and enrollment history and allow new applicants to track their application process.”

The commission noted that the new platform would also allow patients to make a purchase at a medical dispensary only with the authorization of their doctor or nurse practitioner, as opposed to the current process of waiting to receive their health card. identity by post.

“Our customer service unit will be available during the transition period to assist patients with account needs as usual and will be able to answer questions about the new platform,” Anderson-Thomas said. “Instructions on how patients can set up their new accounts will also be on our website.”
