FamilyWize rolls out emRxcel for EMR systems


BETHLEHEM, Pa. — FamilyWize on Tuesday announced the launch of its emRxcel proprietary product that integrates its prescription drug savings program with electronic medical records. With emRxcel, a FamilyWize discount can be automatically included with a patient’s prescription through the EMR. FamilyWize’s Prescription Savings Card is accepted at more than 60,000 pharmacies, including such major chains as Walgreens, Rite Aid, CVS and others. 


“As FamilyWize enters our eleventh year of business, with over 10 million people helped and $1 billion saved, we continue to focus on further improving families’ lives as they struggle to manage their health,” CEO Joseph Sanginiti, Chief Executive Officer at FamilyWize. “Our prescription drug card and app have been tremendously successful, so it only made sense that we directly enlist the help of physicians and pharmacists to automate our program and make it more accessible to patients. emRxcel is a tool that supports the behaviors required for the most consistent prescription medication adherence, and ultimately for families to live healthier lives.”
