I am pharmacist. I am a patient. I am dedicated to advancing the profession of pharmacy and ultimately ensuring that all patients are taking the optimal drug therapy for their condition(s). As a pharmacist, I am an expert in medication use and my goal is to increase awareness of the impact pharmacists can have on patient outcomes. These outcomes include adherence and education, disease management (chronic and acute), and reduction of hospital readmissions, just to name a few.
One component that every patient faces is the financial impact of medication use and the cost of drugs. A potential solution to help with the cost of prescriptions medications is the ScriptSave® WellRx mobile app (iOS/Android).
The ScriptSave WellRx program provides:
- A prescription savings card that offers instant savings at the register on both brand name and generic prescription medication. Use the card to save on prescriptions for you and everyone in your household — including your pets.
- No enrollment fee and no limits on usage.
- Everyone in your household can use the same card.
- A pharmacy discount network of 62,000 participating pharmacies across the county including chain and independent retail pharmacies.
The ScriptSave WellRx mobile app makes it convenient to save on prescription medicines.
My blog will encompass aspects of health ranging from the intricate healthcare system, clinical practice guidelines, dissemination of clinical information that patients can follow, features of ScriptSave WellRx application (including Ask a Pharmacist), and connect patients and healthcare professionals to answers.
With this blog, I hope to help you become a savvy prescription drug consumer, so that you can take the medications you need to get better while saving money.
Please note that I am not compensated by pharmaceutical companies, pharmacies, or other advertisers for the opinions that I’ll express in this blog.
Always remember, the greatest wealth is your health!
