GetMyRx Launches in New York with Health Mart Pharmacies, Empowers Patients
to Fill Prescriptions at the Tap of a Button
Mobile App Makes Filling Prescriptions Quick and Easy for New Yorkers
NEW YORK -- June 23, 2014
GetMyRx, a mobile technology company dedicated to reinventing the pharmacy
experience, today announced its smartphone app is available to New Yorkers.
The GetMyRx® app allows patients to order new prescriptions or refills in
seconds, confirm the copay upfront and get their medications delivered the
same day at no extra charge. GetMyRx has teamed with Health Mart®, a
nationwide pharmacy franchise with more than 3,400 independently owned stores
and a strong presence in New York City.
Owned by McKesson, Health Mart is leading the effort to provide technology
solutions that help independent pharmacies improve medication adherence, an
area where community pharmacies are uniquely positioned to excel due to their
exceptional clinical expertise and patient relationships.
“By working with GetMyRx, our independent pharmacy network can gain a
competitive edge and deliver an unmatched customer experience that is a
first-of-its-kind in the industry,” said Eyad Farah, Senior Director of
Pharmacy Solutions Development at McKesson.
A recent Harvard University study showed that nearly one in three adults who
receive a prescription never pick up the medication, generating billions in
avoidable healthcare costs. GetMyRx addresses this challenge by letting
patients order prescriptions effortlessly and get free same-day delivery from
a local pharmacy. See how it works.
“Health Mart respects the independence of pharmacists, and is committed to
delivering quality and safety to patients. Together, we’re tackling a
widespread and serious healthcare issue at its roots,” said Luis Angel, CEO of
The GetMyRx app can be downloaded for free in the App Store.
