Ordering prescriptions can be a difficult, bothersome process, whether you’re standing in line to see a pharmacist or forced to sit on hold over the phone. However, just as medicine continues to advance, so does everyday technology. Patients are now turning toward smartphone apps to bypass long pharmacy wait times and closing hours to order their prescriptions ahead of time, all from a device within their own hand. Statistics show that patients are breaking records with refills, up 1,262% in April 2016 compared to March 2015, with 20% of users ordering their prescriptions online after 9 p.m.1
One refill app that’s allowing patients to order their prescriptions on their time and at their own leisure is RefillPro.
RefillPro Features and Benefits
RefillPro makes it easy to order prescriptions on the go or after pharmacy hours. Additionally, the app allows you to bypass bothersome hold and wait times, submitting your order directly into the fulfillment queue.2
- The option to refill and manage prescriptions
- Barcode scanning to initiate refills
- Pharmacy locator and contact info
Refill a prescription in just three simple steps:
- Open the app and tap the “Order Refills” button
- Next scan the barcode label on your prescription or tap the “Enter Rx Number” to enter your prescription manually. You can even scan the barcode or enter the number to see where your prescription is in the refill process.
- Upon completion you will receive a notice stating that your order has been submitted and you can pick up your prescription later
The app is available for download on iPhone, iPad and Android devices.
