genieMD Makes the Walgreens Prescription Feature Available in-App

In keeping with genieMD's mission to help people live longer, healthier lives, the Walgreens prescription API has been integrated.


This isn't just another story about user convenience, although that's certainly a feature. Of much greater importance is safety. As genieMD states in its press release, some 125,000 deaths per year in the US are linked to a failure to adhere to medications, meaning that anything that ups the level of patient knowledge about their drugs and their ability to properly manage them can help dent that horrifying statistic. This API integration goes hand in hand with many of genieMD's other offerings, from searchable drug information to the ability to set medication reminders.
