CVS Caremark has released its Caremark.com iPhone application, which can be used with all versions of the Apple iPhone, the iPod Touch, and the iPad.

The application will allow users to connect to the Drug Information Database, where they can research particular prescription medications, get information about how to take them, learn about available generic drug alternatives, see an image of the drug, and learn about side effects and precautions, as well as find other information.

CVS Caremark PBM members can use the application to register on Caremark.com or securely log into their Caremark.com account from their iPhones. Once there, members can perform a variety of functions, including to refill prescriptions, check prescription order status, view prescription history, request a new prescription using FastStart, check drug costs, and find a nearby network pharmacy (by zip code/address or by using their iPhone GPS locator).

“We know our members are looking for opportunities to utilize new technologies to manage their prescriptions and keep them connected,” said Tim Kurth, vice president, eBusiness for Woonsocket, R.I.-based CVS Caremark. “This app is an example of how we provide our plan members with convenient access to their Caremark.com account through their preferred channel, this time through their iPhone.”
