TORONTO, ON / ACCESSWIRE / February 17, 2017 / MVC Technologies today announced a corporate rebranding to Sail Cannabis (Sail), a secure cloud-based cannabis healthcare technology platform. Sail Cannabis has been chosen from among 6,000 global technology companies to be one of only 100 that present at the Startup Grind conference in Silicon Valley later this month.

Sail (formerly My Virtual Clinic), by MVC Technologies, was one of thousands of companies that applied to present at the prestigious tech entrepreneurial conference February 21 - 22. "Of the 6,000 plus startups that were considered, 100 were selected, representing the Startup Grind community across 80 countries," says Derek Andersen, founder & CEO of Startup Grind. "These startups have great teams, traction, technology, and massive markets."

Over the last six months, Sail's integrated platform has grown to help more than 4,000 Canadian cannabis patients connect with doctors and information, and the company is on track to more than triple that to 15,000 patients by the end Q2 2017. Sail is entering the US market this year and will be available in nine states, starting in Massachusetts in the spring, and expects to serve more than 50,000 patients by the end of the year.

"We help patients access the legal medical cannabis industry," says Pradyum Sekar, Sail's CEO & Co-Founder. "Our goal is to break down the barriers between patients and the doctors who are willing to help them by providing access to educated physicians, education centers, and data support tools that can help patients make more informed decisions."

Sail has built and launched one of the only full-scale cannabis applications that connects patients, physicians, and regulated suppliers under one platform. Sail lets cannabis patients better control their own healthcare by providing access, qualification, strain selections and registrations, data security, optimized treatment plans, and verifiable data.
