In our continued mission to power the business of health, we are excited to announce a strategic partnership with PillPack, a VIPPS® certified pharmacy by the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy®. PillPack will be using our Pharmacy APIs to power improved patient experiences for more than 16 million Medicare Advantage Beneficiaries and 40.5 million Medicare Part D Prescription Drug Benefit Plan recipients.
Plans vary in coverage and prices for the same drug are not always the same. Now, before fulfilling prescriptions, PillPack customers can understand what drugs are covered, how much it may cost them and get clarity on when insurance kicks in.
“When our Medicare customers are switching to PillPack, they can now easily find out what their copays are going to be - creating a more transparent and delightful experience,” said Elliot Cohen, co-founder and CTO, PillPack. “During PokitDok’s beta program, we found their modern APIs were easy to integrate and scaled well to handle significant transaction volumes. That’s what led us to this strategic partnership.”
PillPack is designed to serve people who manage multiple medications. Twice a month, customers receive a personalized roll of pre-sorted medications, along with a recyclable dispenser and any other medications not in pill form. Each shipment includes a label that explains what each pill is and when and how they should be taken. Further, PillPack coordinates refills and guarantees on-time shipment of all medications.
“PillPack is a prime example of how to integrate our APIs into an existing workflow, to unlock data and present it in a meaningful way to consumers,” said Lisa Maki, co-founder and CEO, PokitDok. “We have captured, digitized and made available information that has always been stuck in flat files. PillPack is using that to transform the patient experience – for consumers and those that care for them – and for better orchestration with insurance companies to keep unnecessary costs down.”
