Membership Club Plans To Produce Savings, Drug Counseling for Patients
Pill Pals Express Pharmacy, an independent, community pharmacy, is set to launch in Missouri the week of Labor Day of this year.
The new brick-and-mortar-structure pharmacy will enable patients to buy their nutritional, over-the-counter and prescription drugs and devices online. In coming years, additional locations will open their doors for business nationwide.
Pill Pals Express Pharmacy is a pharmacy membership club designed to save patients money. Employers can create customized prescription benefits for their employees. Individual patients may purchase a membership in return for a lifetime of savings.
The pharmacy and the app were founded and created by Dr. Felicia Eddings, Pharm D. “out of a strong desire to ensure that patients understood their meds” and is excited about opening day.
“As a licensed clinical pharmacist with experience in several different patient environments, I was concerned that patients were not getting the answers they need,” Eddings said. “Most pharmacists are too busy to provide full counseling or help to patients. And many patients cannot afford their meds. This creates a gap in both adherence and compliance. At Pill Pals, we aim to close that gap.”
Pill Pals Express Pharmacy is a division of the Health Pals Company, an integrated health system providing medical services to the general public. Business sectors include pharmacy services, home health, telemedicine and medical information technology.
