CaryRx brings prescription delivery to D.C. through Postmates


WASHINGTON — CaryRx and PostMates are bringing same-day delivery to patients in the Washington, D.C. metro area through their partnership. CaryRx’s mobile app lets patients upload paper prescriptions with a photo or transfer existing prescriptions. Prescriptions can be delivered within one hour within the area or scheduled for future delivery, the company said. 

“We are excited to bring this invaluable service to Washington D.C.," CaryRx founder and CEO Areo Nazari said. "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."

The CaryRx app features a secure live chat with its pharmacy team, refill reminders, visual prescription management and express delivery through Postmates as the delivery service’s first prescription fulfillment partner.

“Our theme from day one has been automation of our pharmacy backend,” Nazari said. “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.”

CaryRx, which is available in the Apple App Store, accepts most insurance plans and is expanding its network. VP business development Kevin Lance said that delivery would be free, and that patients can expect the same co-pay as at their brick-and-mortar pharmacy.
