'Uber for prescription drugs' launches in NYC

'Uber for prescription drugs' launches in NYC | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it
The "Uber for prescription drugs" launches in the Big Apple today.

Walk-in clinic operator CityMD has teamed-up with prescription delivery service ZipDrug, a move it says will help New Yorkers sick of extended waits and hassles at the pharmacy.

“They’re connecting dots and simplifying the process and putting it into the palms of the consumer," said Dr. Ned Shami, co-founder of CityMD, who likened the service to popular ride-sharing app.

After a person finishes up their appointment, they will be given the opportunity to scan their prescription and insurance cards into a ZipDrug kiosk.

The company then processes the request, confirming the order with the patient’s pharmacy before sending out one of its certified couriers, all of whom have gone through a background check, drug test, and medical privacy awareness training.

Like Uber, ZipDrug users can then track their orders through a mobile app or online.

A $10 delivery fee will be waived for first-time users.

For now, the service is only available at CityMD's Murray Hill clinic, at 3rd Avenue near East 37th Street, and is expected to last for three to six months and then expand to other locations in Manhattan and eventually reach the boroughs, Shami said.

“This is a great service for a patient who isn’t feeling well and just wants to go home after their appointment,” said Stu Libby, the co-founder of ZipDrug. “I’m most excited because I can empathize. I still haven’t met someone who likes to go to the pharmacy.”

Apple Watch And Holistic Presence

Apple Watch And Holistic Presence | mHealth- Advances, Knowledge and Patient Engagement | Scoop.it
What if you went to start your car and Apple Watch stopped you?

Yes, Apple Watch, with your permission, knew you had spent time at a bar, monitored your heartbeat and other physiological data and saw changes indicating that you had been overdrinking.

When you walked to your car, it connected to the CarKit-powered entertainment system, understood your situation and disabled the car’s Start button. You used your Apple Watch to call an Uber instead.

Or, you’re leaving work instead of a bar. Your device connects to your car’s stereo system and, based on your elevated stress level, starts playing your favorite relaxing jams.

It’s almost possible.

Helping doctors see what really matters to patients

Daniel Sands, MD, an assistant professor at the Harvard School of Medicine and co-founder and co-chairman of the Society for Participatory Medicine, said today's clinicians aren't meeting the needs of an increasingly engaged and empowered patient population because they're still too focused on what they're good at – delivering critical care – and not paying attention to the spaces in between. They're not communicating and collaborating with their patients outside the office, using "frequent life touches" to figure out what those patients are doing each and every day that affects their health and health management.
