Propeller Health integrates Walgreens into ‘My Pharmacy’ tool

By David Salazar - 01/09/2019
Digital therapeutics company Propeller Health has introduced a new tool for patients with asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease who use the Propeller mobile app. The "My Pharmacy" tool will connect patients directly to pharmacy services, with Walgreens as the first pharmacy to be included in the feature.

Using the "My Pharmacy" tool, patients will be able to refill prescriptions for in-store pickup at a Walgreens pharmacy, locate a nearby Walgreens pharmacy, talk live with a pharmacist through Walgreens Pharmacy Chat, and check their Balance Rewards points using the Propeller app.

"The ability to refill a prescription or talk to a pharmacist through an existing digital health tool is an important step in making care easier, faster and less stressful for patients," said Greg Tracy, chief technology officer at Propeller Health. "We're thrilled to work with Walgreens on this launch and hope our collaboration will serve as a blueprint for future pharmacy integrations within our platform."

The feature will roll out to the Propeller iOS app this week, with plans to expand it to the Android app in the coming month. Propeller health said further programs and partners are expected this year.

"Our collaboration with Propeller is the latest example of our focus on working with healthcare companies to bring new, innovative services to our patients and customers," said Giovanni Monti, vice president and director of healthcare innovation at Walgreens Boots Alliance.
