“The Puerto Rico Department of Health faces the incredibly challenging task of launching a new regulated industry from scratch,” said Patrick Vo, CEO, BioTrackTHC™. “We are thankful for the Department’s vote of confidence in BioTrackTHC™, and we look forward to partnering with them and supporting the island’s efforts in building a healthy and transparent medical cannabis program that provides safe access for patients and generates an entire industry of jobs.”

Puerto Rico will be the first government body in the Caribbean and Latin America to procure a software solution to manage their medical cannabis program.

“We assembled an amazing team of project managers, trainers, and technical specialists to provide the highest level of support possible,” said Rafael Sabbagh, Operations Manager at BioTrackTHC™. “We look forward to sharing the experience we’ve gained from deploying similar systems in other states while learning from the local operators during this exciting time.”

Puerto Rico would be BioTrackTHC™’s seventh government contract.
