MedAdvisor has extended its convenience based offerings for both patients and pharmacy in the form of ‘pay in advance’. This follows smaller pilots and has received extremely strong engagement from patients and pharmacies.
The digital medication management company has also extended this service to include (OTC) items and diabetes consumables that can be ordered via the patient’s MedAdvisor app.
This enables customers to keep a formal record of all their medical purchases whilst workflow efficiencies allow pharmacists more time on other revenue-boosting opportunities with customers.
The service fees arising from pay in advance ordering adds to the patient initiated revenue streams that the company is seeking to build over time. This includes the ability for patients to link in with their regular GP and order repeat scripts in clinically appropriate circumstances.
Robert Read, CEO of MedAdvisor comments that patients can now skip the queue at both the dispensary and at the register.
“The click and collect model is now a standard offering in most retail settings,” said Mr Reid.
“The pay in advance feature allows pharmacies to offer innovative payment solutions that customers are looking for.
“For patients, it allows them further convenience and another reason to order their medications through MedAdvisor.”
He adds that removing the friction from the order-payment-collection process is another important step to making medication management easier.”
