SAN FRANCISCO — Users of McKesson's EnterpriseRx pharmacy system can communicate with patients through several mobile communication pathways and deliver a full-featured mobile pharmacy system using the mScripts mobile pharmacy platform, mScripts said Tuesday.
The company said it had received certification for the system, following its announcement of the integration with EnterpriseRx last week.
"We are excited to work with McKesson and offer a comprehensive mobile solution to pharmacies," mScripts CEO Mark Cullen said. "This mobile platform allows EnterpriseRx users to maintain their commitment to innovation and customer service and to provide an immediate benefit to their patients. For patients, the service results in faster and easier prescription refills, better adherence, less time waiting, increased convenience and a closer relationship with their pharmacy."
The integration of mScripts' system with EnterpriseRx provides for two-way, interactive tax messaging and mobile applications support for iPhone, Android and Windows Phone devices to allow communication between patients and pharmacies. Features include the ability for patients to get refills, pickup and dosage reminders and a complete view of their health information, while pharmacies can proactively send patients information on health clinics, drug recalls and coupons.
