This unique integration will allow pharmacies in Healthera’s network to benefit from the hundreds of thousands of prescription requests received by myGP app users every month – making the UK’s digital health landscape more convenient for patients, more fruitful for pharmacies, and more accessible for everyone.
The myGP app is an all-in-one solution, empowering patients to book GP appointments, access their medical records, place repeat medication orders and engage with local health services.
Uniquely, with over 2.9 million users across the UK, their app is helping clinicians and patients alike to have a simple and transparent relationship with healthcare.
Developed by iPLATO Healthcare, a multi-award winning healthcare company, the myGP app has been supporting the NHS for almost a decade across multiple system integrations and patient technologies.
This new partnership with Healthera marks the beginning of yet another chapter in myGP’s mission to make healthcare convenient and accessible for all.
Patients who order their prescriptions via the myGP app will now have the option to get their medicine dispensed by a local pharmacy in Healthera’s network. This “collection” option will allow more orders through myGP to have a speedy turnaround, making things even simpler for patients.
For Healthera’s 1,500+ partner pharmacies, this means they will receive more prescription orders without having to source additional patients themselves, saving time and money.
The system integration will mean orders referred by myGP to Healthera-partnered pharmacies will go through the exact same process as regular prescriptions, ensuring internal admin by pharmacies is just as easy as usual.
In total, it’s estimated that this new partnership could make hundreds of thousands of new prescription orders available to Healthera-partnered pharmacies every month.
Hailing the integration as another step forward for myGP, CEO Tobias Alpsten said:
Healthera’s CEO, Quintus Liu also praised the partnership:
The integration itself is expected to go live by Jan 2024.
