Leading Australian digital medication management company MedAdvisor Limited (ASX: MDR) has signed an agreement which will enable the company’s 3,300 network pharmacies to offer medication delivery to their patients.
MedAdvisor has contracted Metropolitan transport and logistics provider Kings Transport due to their national footprint, extensive experience in the safe and appropriate delivery of medication and endorsement by the Pharmacy Guild of Australia.
CEO Robert Read said MedAdvisor and Kings Transport will partner to drive volume of orders in app and through pharmacy.
Mr Read said the agreement will allow MedAdvisor to enable a same day medication delivery fulfilment service to the company’s 3,300 network pharmacies for use with their approximately 12 million Australian customers, including (but not limited to) those who order directly via the MedAdvisor app and SMS.
Of the ~12m Australian customers serviced by its pharmacy network, MedAdvisor has over 1.2 million who are digitally connected either through its highly rated consumer app or SMS reminder service.
Over $300m worth of medication orders pass through the integrated MedAdvisor platform each year, and its digitally connected patients are well placed to take advantage of the convenience of integrated medication pre- payment and delivery from their preferred pharmacy.
Mr Read said that following the recent activation of Pay in Advance functionality, MedAdvisor will now provide seamless integration and workflow for pharmacies to coordinate deliveries that includes dynamic pricing, payment facilities and now home delivery with driver tracking.
“Patients are demanding greater convenience in their healthcare experience,” Mr Read said.
MedAdvisor already partners with over 55% of Australian pharmacies to help them deliver unparalleled convenience to their customers.
“By adding enhanced convenience services like delivery to their customer proposition, community pharmacies can deepen the vital relationship between patients and their regular pharmacist. Having these services activated in readiness for ePrescribing is a huge opportunity and risk mitigation for community pharmacy.”
