Avicenna has launched a new prescription ordering app – Manage My Meds – that enables customers to quickly order and track repeat NHS prescriptions from their chosen pharmacy.
The digital service, which launched this month, is free for customers and integrates with NHS patient-facing services, making it easy for customers to manage their medications without requiring any unnecessary trips to their GP.
Manage My Meds is an iOS and Android mobile app and cross-platform web app which brings together the NHS, pharmacies, and GPs to make it easy for patients to comprehensively manage their healthcare.
Features include daily medication reminders, repeat order reminders, being able to securely message and book appointments with GPs and pharmacies, viewable prescription history and medical notes, and the ability to manage prescriptions for a family through the app.
Jonathan Power, CEO at Avicenna, said: “Our pharmacies are at the heart of the communities we serve, providing essential NHS services and being available to support our customers’ needs. Manage My Meds is an integrated website and mobile app, designed in conjunction with NHS Digital, which makes it convenient for customers to manage their healthcare from the comfort of their own home. No other app allows patients to do this so comprehensively – it’s a global first in healthcare innovation.”
The app was first trialed in April before being refined based on customer feedback. The next stage of development is to offer the ability for users to have video consultations with pharmacists.
