Refill Buddy is an app, available for Apple and Android, which makes refilling prescriptions and dealing with pharmacies easy. One of the most useful functions it provides is allowing you to send an order to refill your prescription to your pharmacy by simply taking a picture of the label. In addition, it allows you to transfer your prescription to a different pharmacy or get the pharmacy to call your doctor about your prescription, so you don’t have to.
You can also use the app in order to find a pharmacy, either by name or address or through the GPS function, which will help you find the nearest option. Refill Buddy also conveniently saves your profile information, so you don’t need to re-enter your personal information every time, and has an attractive, easy-to-use interface.
The Canadian MedsCheck initiative is a chance for patients to make an appointment with their pharmacist to discuss their medication and how to manage medications and take them safely. It is also taken advantage of in the app, as these meetings can be scheduled by selecting the correct function. The app is optimal for busy people or those with many prescriptions, as it saves the time which would be spent calling the pharmacy, standing in line or visiting the doctor’s office. It also gives you the opportunity to do it all on your phone or tablet.
Refill buddy can be downloaded at no charge onto Apple or Android devices, in order to make your life a little easier when it comes to prescriptions.
