The app would enable users to buy prescription medicine online
The Dadha Group owned NetMeds.com announced the launch of its mobile app, to buy prescription medication online. This application can be downloaded on any Android or iPhone device enabling users to validate their prescriptions, learn about various medicines and compare drugs by prices.
Reportedly, 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. The company has tied-up with India Post to provide delivery services. The app will also apparently maintain the records of the medicine order and will give refill reminders to make sure the medication is not forgotten.
Commenting on the launch Pradeep Dadha, CEO, Netmeds said, “This is an important milestone for Netmeds.com as 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 seeks to give an opportunity to prescription medication users to select their required medications from reportedly more than 260 drug categories for chronic conditions, such as diabetes, hypertension and cholesterol control.
