GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — SpartanNash on Tuesday announced the formation of a partnership to offer a comprehensive mobile and web pharmacy solution to SpartanNash customers. The mobile solution, powered by mscripts, will enable SpartanNash customers to refill prescriptions, receive pickup and dosage reminders, and manage accounts for their family members.
SpartanNash operates 88 pharmacies in six states throughout the upper Midwest.
“We are thrilled to provide a solution to help our customers manage their medications conveniently,” stated Larry Pierce, VP of center store merchandising at SpartanNash. “This helps our customers, particularly those who have complex medication regimes, stay on top of their health. They can refill through text or in the app, no matter where they are. They can set reminders to take their medications without having to enter all the prescription information first. They can see a list of all their scripts any time.”
“SpartanNash really understands the role mobile can play in forging close ties to their local community,” added Mark Cullen, CEO of mscripts. “This allows SpartanNash pharmacy customers to see and manage their prescriptions, either on the phone or through the website, making it easy to fill and take their medications on schedule and as prescribed.”
The new app will be available to SpartanNash customers in early summer 2014 as a free download through Apple iTunes and the Android Market. The application will operate on a secure network and integrated with McKesson’s EnterpriseRx pharmacy management system, enabling SpartanNash to offer a variety of digital communication pathways to its customers.
