WASHINGTON, Aug. 2, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- CaryRx, a next-generation full-service pharmacy, has announced the launch of its new, same day delivery service for patients in the Washington D.C. metropolitan area. CaryRx aims to replace the traditional retail pharmacy by providing delivery of medications through the convenience of its patient-friendly mobile app. Prescriptions can be scheduled for future delivery or delivered within one hour to any location in D.C.
"We are excited to bring this invaluable service to Washington D.C.," says Areo Nazari, founder and CEO. "Our goal is to provide an amazing patient experience not readily available throughout the country while constantly innovating to bridge the gap between pharmacies, patients and prescribers. Backed by a truly technology infused pharmacy, our proprietary platform is vertically integrated for seamless and efficient fulfillment of prescription deliveries."
CaryRx's mobile app allows patients to upload paper prescriptions via photo or easily transfer existing prescriptions and allows physicians to directly prescribe to CaryRx. Any prescription will be ready to order in just minutes. The app features a secure live chat with the pharmacy team, refill reminders, visual Rx management and express deliveries through Postmates. CaryRx is Postmates' first prescription fulfillment partner and, according to Mr. Nazari, "Our theme from day one has been automation of our pharmacy backend. The backend integration with Postmates expands on that theme and gives us the fastest prescription delivery experience available in the country with a delivery logistics platform that can scale with our volume."
As for pricing, "We're very excited to announce patients will have the same co-pay for their prescriptions and scheduled deliveries will be absolutely free for prescriptions delivered in Washington, D.C.," says Kevin Lance, VP of Business Development. "We accept most insurance plans and are continually expanding our network."
CaryRx is now available on the Apple App store with the Android app release soon to follow.
CaryRx is a fully mobile healthcare experience where patients have prescriptions delivered on-demand. Patients can submit prescriptions, chat live with a pharmacist, and schedule free same-day delivery of prescription medications. CaryRx sets the standard for the next generation pharmacy where patient experience and convenience is the priority.
