Walgreens is extremely excited to announce a new integration with WebMD with the Walgreens Prescription and Balance Rewards APIs. Within the WebMD iPhone app, customers can take advantage of the Prescription Refill & Transfer APIs within the "Health Tools" section of the app and participate in our Balance Rewards program within the "Healthy Target" feature. For WebMD Android app customers, the ability to refill or transfer a Walgreens prescription is available within the "Health Tools" feature.
WebMD offers physician-reviewed health content and interactive tools in addition to on-demand healthy living information. The innovative design marries content and utility informed by more than five years of user insights and feedback.
WebMD for iPhone also features Healthy Target, an innovative health improvement program that will help you create and sustain healthy habits. By connecting an activity tracker, wireless scale, blood pressure monitor, or glucometer you'll be able to view all of your data in one location and receive WebMD contextual content and insights while getting rewarded for making healthy choices with the Walgreens Balance Rewards API integrated into the WebMD app.
Now hold your, because you can also use the WebMD iPhone and Android apps inside the Health Tools to Refill and Transfer you prescriptions to Walgreens via the Prescription API. WebMD allows you to scan or manually enter the prescription for refilling and send a photo of the prescription bottle for transferring to Walgreens.
Mobile Health Library™ (MHL) is the HIPAA-compliant clinical engagement system built for the unique education, service, and support needs of patients, caregivers, nurses, physicians, and pharmacists. The MHL application supports the safety, education, adherence, and affordability needs of patients taking specific medications, or using specific medical devices.
Rob Dhoble, CEO, Adherent Health, LLC had this great quote about the integration: "Integrating the Walgreens scan-to-refill API into the Mobile Health Library app helps to simplify the Rx refill process for many of our patients, supporting medication adherence as part of mobile engagement strategies that advance health outcomes.”
