ScalaMed is seen as a huge value add for your patients. The ability for them to receive all of their prescriptions from any doctor in the US directly to their phone, and inside your App is a win. Patients now are empowered, have flexibility, portability, price transparency, a 24/7 record, and the freedom to decide which pharmacy after they have been prescribed.
Today, patients need to select a pharmacy before they often know what they are going to be prescribed, how much it will cost them and whether the pharmacy is open or has stock. ScalaMed gives the patient their Rx first.
