Walgreens Hosts Developer Contest to Generate Interest in Balance Rewards API

Walgreen's newest API rewards users for maintaining a healthy lifestyle. Developers now have a chance to submit mashups that consume the API for a chance to win cash prizes.

Walgreens Balance Rewards

The Balance® Rewards API enables pre-qualified partners to connect into Walgreens to share individual member health and wellness information to be eligible to receive Balance Rewards points for healthy activity like walking, running, and weight management. The API is designed to enable partners to seamlessly share individual health and lifestyle activity and create or validate user memberships. In order for individuals to receive points for health and wellness activity, they must be a Balance Rewards member and have successfully completed a Walgreens OAuth login or registration.

Walgreens Pharmacy Prescription Refill

The Walgreens Pharmacy Prescription API allows users of third-party mobile applications to quickly order refills of prescriptions originally filled at one of the 8,000+ Walgreens pharmacies. Mobile app users can order refills in seconds, as well as select the option to opt-in to receive a text alert when their prescription order is ready for pick up. The health care focused Pharmacy Prescription API is designed to increase prescription compliance and aid in personal health management through automated refill alerts and a streamlining of the refill process. By offering easy prescription refills through this health management API, Walgreens hopes to further increase health care adherence by reaching a wider audience through third party health care apps.
