You can now pre-order medicines from your regular pharmacy through the eRx QR code scanning application. This new smartphone app from eRx Script Exchange will be launched in October.
eRx’s new QR Code app will allow consumers to order their medicines ahead of time from their pharmacy of choice by simply scanning the given quick response codes. eRx Express is eRx’s first app connecting its consumers with its national eScripts network.
The QR codes will be appearing on prescriptions and will be replicating eRx’s bar code info on each script. By scanning these codes using a smartphone, consumers get to order their meds and then claim it from the pharmacy at a convenient time. Consumers just need to hand over their paper script when they collect their order in order to help ensure that all PBS requirements are met.
According to Paul Naismith, the CEO of eRx’s parent company, Fred IT Group, the new QR code app will bridge the convenience of mobile technology with the security and privacy of the national eRx network.
Naismith explained that their primary concern had been in ensuring that they provide consumers the flexibility and convenience they need whilst also ensuring that the new app and any future apps for that matter integrate with the security and privacy standards that are being upheld by pharmacy and health applications.
And because eRx Express will use individual QR codes replicating the eRx barcode data on each script, the script requests sent via the app will directly integrate into the pharmacy dispensing system. This, in effect, saves time since there is no more re-keying of data.
Naismith added that this new app will greatly improve the dispensing workflow and can ultimately reduce queue times in pharmacies, thus benefitting not only customers but also the staff. Pharmacy staff will instead have more time assisting other customers with their healthcare needs.
