Med-tech company MedAdvisor (ASX: MDR) is partnering with Pharmacy Alliance, Australia’s largest independent pharmacy group, to offer pharmacies access to their industry leading medication management mobile app, providing pharmacies a long-term solution for e-Health.
The partnership means Pharmacy Alliance will make the MedAdvisor app available to more than 750 independent pharmacies to help them accelerate digital adoption in their workflows and improve customer loyalty.
MedAdvisor CEO Robert Read said: “We’re delighted to welcome Pharmacy Alliance to the MedAdvisor family. As one of the largest independent pharmacy buying groups in Australia, this partnership will go a long way towards enabling technology adoption in independent pharmacies across the country – helping pharmacists work smarter by streamlining the important tasks of dispensing medications and promoting improved adherence and health outcomes for patients.”
Pharmacy Alliance Managing Director Simon Reynolds said: “With social distancing continuing to be in practice as a result of COVID-19, the MedAdvisor app will allow our members to help their customers manage their medication when they are not able to visit their local pharmacies.”
The partnership comes ahead of the launch of ePrescribing in Australia which will boost the use of digital solutions to provide customers with convenience, access and choice.
“MedAdvisor is a secure, digital script wallet that connects directly with the pharmacy. It helps customers organise and manage their eScripts, plus they can be easily and securely sent right to a pharmacy’s dispensing workflow from within the app. This removes faxes, emails and other disruptive processes that pharmacists currently experience with digital image dispensing. For pharmacists, processing of tokens will be similar to paper scripts, meaning minimal change and disruption to current workflows,” Read said.
