BALDWINSVILLE, N.Y. Patient Portal Technologies on Wednesday announced today that the company is partnering with Rite Aid to pilot a unique prescription delivery service to hospital patients.
The pilot program will be conducted with a Philadelphia healthcare system and supported by select Philadelphia Rite Aid locations.
Patient Portal’s MedEx Home Delivery will offer free home delivery of prescriptions for hospital patients who are being discharged, eliminating their need to stop for the medication on their way home.

Managing the patient relationship and providing services that enhance wellness is essential.”
