Pharmacy Advantage Adds Mobile App 

The new app, Pharm Adv, and its website operate on a secure network created by San Francisco-based mscripts, a leader in mobile pharmacy services. “We view mscripts mobile application as an opportunity for patients to take on a more engaged role in their treatment and medication needs,” says Daniel Kus, VP with Pharmacy Advantage Specialty Pharmacy.

Use of this app will allow patients to scan refill prescriptions, receive date-shipped notification, be given dosage reminders, and access an overview of their medication records. For those not having a smartphone, there will be the option to receive text messages.

Pharmacy Advantage Specialty Pharmacy is a Michigan- based company that provides tailored MTM programs to patients with acute and chronic conditions.
