The Dadha Group owned NetMeds.com, India’s first e-marketplace for pharma to offer delivery across the country announced the launch of its mobile app, bringing the convenience of buying prescription medication online to everyone with a smartphone and a valid prescription. This application can be downloaded on any Android or iPhone device enabling users to validate their prescriptions, learn about various medicines and even compare drugs by prices.
The app makes the entire Netmeds.com catalogue of more than 50,000 SKU’s available to everyone with a valid prescription and a smart phone. Consumerswill now have 24/7 access to the most up-to-date and affordable drugs for health maintenance, ordered online and delivered across the country. The company has tied-up with India Post to provide delivery services.
The app will also maintain the records of the medicine order and will give refill reminders to make sure the medication is not forgotten. Once a user has uploaded their prescription, it is carefully examined by the company’s pharmacists, for proper dosage, duration, and other points of validity, further ensuring the patient of the best possible outcome. Once validated it becomes a “cloud-stored and retrievable document”, which is important not only for refill purposes but also in the course of overall health maintenance management.
Commenting on the launch Pradeep Dadha, CEO, Netmeds, said “This is an important milestone for Netmeds.comas well as being a giant leap forward in the war against chronic disease. Through the app we aim to reach out to the millions of people living in non-metro areas where access to many drugs, up until now has been limited and difficult.”
The app will give an opportunity to prescription medication users to select their required medications from more than 260 drug categories for the Chronic Conditions, such as Diabetes, Hypertension and Cholesterol Control.
