DestinationRx Launches Online Prescription Resource to Help Consumers Manage Medications, Find Lower Cost Options and Competitive Pricing on Thousands of Drugs

Free Website Offers Clear and Actionable Information for Prescription Needs of Entire Family

As the debate over future national healthcare policy heats up, Americans are looking for better ways to proactively manage and make sense of their health care options. Today, DestinationRx launches the only free online health and prescription resource at www.destinationrx.com that gives consumers all of the tools they need to manage their personal medicine cabinet from expert information and customized options through online or local retail purchase.

DestinationRx is like having a pharmacist who makes house calls, said Michael Cho, President and CEO of DestinationRx. Now, consumers will be able to get all the information they need to make decisions about the medications they need for themselves and their families.

DestinationRx will help consumers:

  • Compare and enroll in a Medicare Part D plan that best meets their needs
  • Review lower cost medication options
  • Compare the efficacy and side effects of over 800 prescription drugs
  • Find the online or local pharmacy with the best prices for their medications and make a purchase
  • Organize and manage all of their prescriptions from different doctors, as well as a growing list of over-the-counter medicines
  • Receive customized reports on alternative drug therapies to treat their health condition
  • Organize and manage the prescriptions of other family members all in one place
  • Access electronically and/or print their prescription drug information whenever they need it
  • Send Prescription Change Requests directly to their physicians
  • Sign up for prescription refill reminders and new generic and safety alerts

DestinationRx now helps individuals and their families understand and make smarter health care purchasing decisions. The site offers an action-oriented approach that provides consumers with safe, secure and reliable information about the medication options available to them for treating a condition. It also provides an understanding of how a drug works and informs them about potential side effects and interactions. Together, these resources can help consumers save money, by comparing prices at different online and offline pharmacies or by considering lower cost drug therapy options that they can then share and discuss with their doctors via the site.

DestinationRx will soon be launching its tool to help consumers during Medicare Part D Plan preparation season at plancompare.destinationrx.com (and www.destinationrx.com). The resource helps millions of consumers annually compare and enroll in a plan. In fact, nearly three out of four Medicare beneficiaries used the companys tools last year.

DestinationRx is the first company to provide both insured and uninsured consumers with dose-specific, therapeutic-equivalent drug price comparison of drugs at major retail and online pharmacies in the United States. Its database has been peer-reviewed and validated by several leading healthcare organizations, including the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS). By combining this database with its transaction capabilities, DestinationRx is able to provide the information and tools necessary for consumers to make immediate and informed healthcare decisions and purchases.

About DestinationRx

With offices in Los Angeles, San Francisco, Chicago and Baltimore, DestinationRx (www.destinationrxinc.com) lets consumers, for the first time, get the information they need to find direct comparisons on price, safety and therapeutic efficacy of drugs as well as drug and health plans.

Since 1999, the company provides the healthcare industry with the educational, strategic, and transaction-support tools necessary for their customers and patients to navigate todays complex healthcare marketplace and make better health care decisions and purchases. DestinationRx technology helps nearly three out of four Medicare beneficiaries annually compare and enroll in a Medicare Part D plan that best meets their needs.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
