PILL PALS EXPRESS CO. APP DEBUTS TO EASE DRUG PURCHASES
The Pill Pals Pharmacy App, the mobile device app of the Missouri based independent, community pharmacy, officially debuts in the medical, pharmaceutical and digital spaces.The app is now available on both Google Android and Apple IOS stores.
As the Internet version of the brick-and-mortar-structure pharmacy in Missouri, the Pill Pals app allows shoppers to buy their nutritional, over-the-counter and prescription drugs and devices online. Customers will also be able to keep track of their purchasing history through the app.
The pharmacy’s actual physical space will launch the week of Labor Day of this year. In coming months, branch locations will also be open for business in multiple states.
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.”
“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.
