Austin, TX– The field of modern medicine has been described as a “medical conveyor belt,” with many moving pieces and parts that help manage the hand off that occurs from patient to patient. More and more healthcare professionals are working at the top of each of their skill sets and fighting to create a more seamless experience for every patient they see.
RxWiki is helping pharmacists make the move out from behind the counter and become an even more integral part in connecting consumers with their healthcare and medication needs. The app itself is actually written and edited by pharmacists and wields a community of pharmacists that are ready to answer critical questions.
For patients, RxWiki allows them to learn about medications using their encyclopedia-style library and to stay informed via doctor-reviewed articles about prominent health issues, and refill their prescriptions within the app as necessary.
Pharmacists are provided a series of services in which they can communicate directly with consumers through the app. They are also provided with a number of services in which they can directly send information to consumers through email newsletters and through RxWiki TV.
As the modern pharmacist continues to play more of an active involvement throughout the patient’s treatment, I suspect that we are going to see a strong rise in pharmacists making the move into more hands-on roles that go beyond a brief interaction and a cleanly packaged prescription.
