Tucson, AZ. January 23, 2019 – It’s a fact – prescription medications don’t work if patients don’t take them, or fail to take them correctly. Taking medications as prescribed by your physician can help improve the quality and length of your life. The latest release of the ScriptSave® WellRx app can help.

Importance of Taking Your Medications

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), nearly 50% of Americans have used at least one prescription within the last 30 days. If you fall into this half of the country, you’ve probably already had the discussion with your doctor & pharmacist about the importance of following instructions, with insights on why it matters. One recent study, for example, shows that patients who were compliant with taking their statin medications for at least two years had a 30% reduction in the risk of hospitalization for heart attacks.1

Even with all the benefits medications can have on a patient’s health, there is still an issue with adherence to medication therapy.

Not only does the new ScriptSave WellRx app release provide prescription price transparency, it also allows patients to set alerts for when they’re due to take their next pill, as well as when it’s time to order their next refill from the pharmacy. Meanwhile, built in functionality helps patients track side-effects that they might want to share with their doctor (using the ScriptSave WellRx Mood Log, which can be launched from the virtual Medicine Chest).

In addition, the newest enhancement for users of the WellRx platform also provides free access to some potentially life-saving functionality:

  • Drug Interaction Warnings: Patients can receive and share warnings when drugs in their personal in-app Medicine Chest might interact with each other.
  • Lifestyle Interaction Warnings: This includes warnings about potential drug interactions with certain foods patients eat, or activities they might engage in.
  • Expanded Drug Information: Patients can view detailed information, images, and videos for drugs within the Medicine Chest. Much of this information is available in English and Spanish.

The new release also caters to users who wish take advantage of the added security afforded by biometric login. Users can set up fingerprint password management for the app, making signing in quick, easy and secure.
