Priceline Pharmacy is partnering with GuildLink to bring customers a new free mobile app.
The app aims to assist customers in managing their own medication and health services. It will launch later this year.
Priceline says the app will allow customers to manage their medication safely. This will include taking the correct dose at the right time and refill scripts before they run out.
Patients who have just visited their GP will be able to securely order new medication ready for their local Priceline Pharmacy to dispense.
Priceline Pharmacy General Manager Tamalin Morton said, “We know our customers are busy and anything we can do to make taking care of their health easier is something we look to invest in.
“The app will be linked to a customer’s regular Priceline Pharmacy store for convenience and to strengthen the relationship between patients and their local Priceline pharmacist.”
Ms Morton says Priceline Pharmacy chose to work with GuildLink because it values the importance of the pharmacy-patient relationship. It can also provide digital and professional services across the entire Priceline Pharmacy network.
“We know strict data control and an uncompromising approach to privacy is a key issue for Australian consumers,” she said. “In choosing GuildLink as our preferred vendor, we’re putting patients first and providing them with a secure and trusted solution for future healthcare integration.”
GuildLink Acting CEO Jannine Johnson said, “We’re constantly innovating to make it easier for pharmacies to offer consumers vital services in their local communities.
“Priceline Pharmacies using our technology will find it easier to record and report on all pharmacy services, including immunisation and adverse events, and providing connectivity to MyHealthRecord.
“Our technology makes it easier for pharmacies. But, ultimately, we know that Priceline Pharmacy customers who use this new app will be the real beneficiaries. And that’s our key driver.”
