Walgreens is the first pharmacy to be included in the new My Pharmacy feature
Propeller Health, a digital therapeutics company has announced the launch of My Pharmacy feature, connecting Propeller users living with asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) directly to pharmacy services in the Propeller mobile app.
Walgreens is the first pharmacy to be included in the new My Pharmacy feature, giving Walgreens patients a single platform for managing their asthma or COPD medication regimen.
Through My Pharmacy, patients will be able to refill prescriptions for in-store pickup at Walgreens pharmacies, locate a nearby Walgreens pharmacy, talk live with a pharmacist through Walgreens Pharmacy Chat and check their Walgreens Balance Rewards™ points, all within the Propeller app.
Greg Tracy, chief technology officer for Propeller Health said, “The ability to refill a prescription or talk to a pharmacist through an existing digital health tool is an important step in making care easier, faster and less stressful for patients. We’re thrilled to work with Walgreens on this launch and hope our collaboration will serve as a blueprint for future pharmacy integrations within our platform.”
Giovanni Monti, VP and director of healthcare innovation, Walgreens Boots Alliance said, “Our collaboration with Propeller is the latest example of our focus on working with healthcare companies to bring new, innovative services to our patients and customers.”
My Pharmacy will be rolled out to users on Propeller for iOS this week and will be available on Propeller for Android in the coming month, with plans to expand to other programs and partners this year.
