App allows customers to skip pharmacy trips

What if consumers could bypass trips to the pharmacy, eliminating the need to wait in lines while prescriptions are filled or insurance companies are contacted? Well, apparently, there’s now an app for that.

What if consumers could bypass trips to the pharmacy, eliminating the need to wait in lines while prescriptions are filled or insurance companies are contacted? Well, apparently, there’s now an app for that.

GetMyRx Inc. recently launched a mobile application that will allow customers to order prescriptions from their phones, confirm their copays upfront, and have medications delivered the same day at no extra cost. It can be downloaded here.

The service is available in Miami and in coming weeks is expected to be available in New York, San Francisco, and other cities.

“While much attention has been given to the problem of medication nonadherence, most efforts have been directed toward helping people stay on treatment. GetMyRx is the first solution to focus on the 30% of new prescriptions that never get filled in the first place,” said Luis Angel, founder and CEO of GetMyRx. “With the GetMyRx app, consumers no longer need to waste time driving or standing in line at pharmacies in order to get basic prescription medications.”

GetMyRx supports new or existing, paper or electronic prescriptions. The app matches the consumers’ location with nearby pharmacies. After confirming copayment information, the prescription is filled and delivered. A demonstration can be seen here
