Medication Management Hackathon 2014: Congrats Pillable

Wed, 11/05/2014 - 11:43 - Drew Schweinfurth

Well, needless to say going up to the bitter north in Minnesota to judge pill reminders and adherence apps may not be everyones most exciting weekend event, but we must exclaim how blown away we were with the whole event! Not only did we get the beautiful fall weather that exists very rarely we got some really amazing ideas and apps created. The host, Treehouse Health was not only in a wonderful location, but provided exemplarily staff and facilities for the event. Thanks a lot JD and Treehouse Health! We had a extremely verbose group that ranged from python developers all the way to nurse practitioners and paramedics. So when it came to the 3rd day of the event we got pretty excited about the results and presentations that people gave. We were looking to give a $1000 prize to the app that best integrated the Walgreens Prescription Refill / Transfer API or Balance Rewards API. 



After an extended deliberation time we came to the conclusion that the Pillable was the obvious winner based on the creative design, development environment, and usage of both the APIs. The app was built to help a user review their pills and talk about the experiences that they go through when taking their prescription. The app also allowed for vitals to be recorded in the review process then connecting to Walgreens by sending (weight, blood pressure, blood glucose) and prescriptions refills / transfers. 

"The Medication Management Hackathon sponsored by Walgreens was a memorable experience for me. The community, volunteers, and local businesses all came together to think big for a weekend. I had the privilege of talking with awesome people, learning a ton, and winning the walgreens API challenge. Hurray! It was really cool to see people give up their weekend for a cause that matters."  - Daniel Rasmuson, Developer and Dreamer of Pillable.

We look forward to working with the developer behind the Pillable app over the coming weeks to help him launch the application in production and claim not only our $1,000 prize, but also the number of Walgreens users who would like to manage their medications to stay happy and healthy! We were very impressed with all the other groups' presentations as well and we look forward to helping them release their ideas into the internets. If you missed the event this year you are more than welcome to shoot a message to our developer evangelist Drew Schweinfurth and he can answer any questions about the event, our apis, or any upcoming events we are planning.

Introducing Immunizations by Sunny Nagra

Mon, 11/03/2014 - 11:58 - Drew Schweinfurth

Walgreens is proud to announce a unique third party integration of our current retail pharmacy & clinic locations. The newly updated "Immunizations" app, created by University of the Pacific pharmacy student, Sunny Nagra, which is on the Apple App Store, allows users to find pharmacies and clinics that provide immunizations and the app can keep a digital record of your vaccines for quick and easy access. 

"The overall idea of the app is to make it easier for patients to have everything they need in regards to immunizations, such as locations to get vaccinated, educational resources, and the ability to record their vaccines in the app. It also empowers pharmacists to list their own pharmacies in the app if they provide immunizations at their location.” Said Sunny Nagra, the third party developer and pharmacy student at University of the Pacific in Stockton, CA.

Don’t miss out on the newly upgraded "Immunizations" app today, download it on the Apple App Store today!
