US: Walgreens Partners With EnvisionRx For Health Programme

Walgreens has announced a 90-day pharmacy programme in collaboration with EnvisionRx, the pharmacy benefit management (PBM) division of EnvisionRxOptions.

The two sides said the programme, called ‘Rx90’, will focus on “changing behaviours and improving health conditions in a rising number of patients with chronic conditions”.  It offers patients the option to fill 90-day prescriptions at any of Walgreens’ nearly 8,200 US pharmacies for the same price as home delivery through EnvisionPharmacies’ mail service.

The programme intends to offer patients with total clinical care and health advice from EnvisionRx and Walgreens pharmacists, and help lower medical expenses related to clinical visits and hospitalisations.

NAM Implications:
  • Complementary blend of online medical advice and fulfilment with a Bricks & Mortar equivalent
  • Has to produce synergies in terms of optimising patient lifetime value
  • A pointer for other players?
