07/12/2021

Managing prescriptions for yourself and your family is an important part of keeping everyone healthy. Unfortunately, things don’t always go according to plan and sometimes you forget to refill a prescription or can’t get to the pharmacy to pick it up.

Fortunately, Express Scripts Canada (ESC) Pharmacy’s state-of-the-art mobile app solves these and other problems often faced by consumers, especially those who rely on prescription drugs to treat chronic health conditions. With the ease of a few taps on ESC Pharmacy’s mobile device, you can refill prescriptions, make a payment and have your medications delivered right to your door.

“The app connects you directly to pharmacy services through your device, so you can skip the trip to the pharmacy,” says Chad Griffin, product owner and manager of digital pharmacy at Express Scripts Canada. “It gives you the capabilities to manage your entire family’s prescriptions. You can access all active prescriptions, see how many refills are left, and sign up for auto refills, which we encourage all users to do to avoid the stress of running out. Everything is scheduled to deliver on time, right to you.”

Ready access to such services is particularly helpful for caregivers or those with elderly parents who may not feel comfortable using a virtual pharmacy to help manage their prescriptions for them. The app also provides a prescription summary and directions for how to take your medications, which is handy to have when you’re asked what medications you’re taking when receiving a vaccination or at a medical appointment. “It’s an easy way to access all your meds at a glance with instructions,” affirms Griffin.

If you’ve used up all of your refills, you can make a request through the app for a prescription renewal to your physician. Prescriptions at other pharmacies can also be transferred so you can manage and track all of your prescription orders through the app until they arrive at your home.

The newest feature of Express Scripts Canada Pharmacy’s mobile app is medication reminders that you can set to remind yourself to take your medication. We have busy lives, and it’s easy to forget a dose especially with a new medication or if you’re taking several different medications. Taking your medication as prescribed is critically important for controlling chronic conditions, treating temporary conditions, and overall long-term health and well-being.

Express Scripts Canada Pharmacy introduced its medication reminders feature to help prompt patients to take their medications and track their adherence. “Our app is the only pharmacy app with a reminders feature,” says Griffin. “Once you activate, the app sends notifications to your phone, so it acts as an alert system to take your medication. Adherence to medication drives better outcomes, which is why we felt it was vital to add reminders to the app.”

As with all Express Scripts Canada Pharmacy services, patient support is readily available with the mobile app if you have questions or need help managing your prescriptions. Rest assured knowing that all of your information is secure.
