NEW YORK — Mobile technology company GetMyRx on Monday announced its smartphone app is available to New Yorkers. The GetMyRx app allows patients to order new prescriptions or refills, confirm the copay upfront and get medications delivered the same day at no extra charge. For the launch GetMyRx has teamed with Health Mart, a nationwide pharmacy franchise with more than 3,400 independently owned stores and a strong presence in New York City.
Owned by McKesson, Health Mart is one of the companies leading the effort to provide technology solutions that help independent pharmacies improve medication adherence, an area where community pharmacies are uniquely positioned to excel due to their exceptional clinical expertise and patient relationships.
“By working with GetMyRx, our independent pharmacy network can gain a competitive edge and deliver an unmatched customer experience that is a first-of-its-kind in the industry,” stated Eyad Farah, senior director of pharmacy solutions development at McKesson.
A recent Harvard University study showed that nearly one in three adults who receive a prescription never pick up the medication. GetMyRx addresses this challenge by letting patients order prescriptions through their smartphones and get free same-day delivery from a local pharmacy.
