Rxeed – Laravel Application
Rxeed offers a one-stop shop that connects consumers, independent pharmacies and drug wholesalers in a dynamic electronic marketplace for prescriptions. They are building a pharmacy community that is inclusive, effective and revolutionary. The marketplace facilitates business to business and business to consumer sales.
The founding team of Rxeed came to Plego with their conceptualization of a brand new marketplace for pharmaceuticals. They wanted a marketplace that minimized the inefficiencies that came with purchasing prescription drugs and make it a win win win scenario for consumers, pharmacies and wholesalers.
Plego designed and developed a brand new web application via the Laravel PHP Framework. This web application was developed for three specific types of users:
Below is a summary of each component of this web application.
The Rxeed Web Application lets you choose how much you pay for prescription drugs by letting multiple pharmacies bid their lowest price for your medication and required services.
It lets you get transparent competition from both retail and mail order pharmacies, at the same time. Competition lowers prices and improves services and quality; it’s good for both retail and mail order pharmacy.
It has a locate feature that locates who stocks the medication you need.
Rxeed offers CMR- Comprehensive Medication Review, A thorough consultation regarding all patient medications that benefits drug adherence and compliance, coverage of drug interactions or possible drug duplication to name a few areas of concern.
The site features “Contact a Compounding Pharmacy”. Hard to make and hard to find compounded medications are no longer a cause of frustration for the customer. Simply input the compound information and Rxeed.com will search for a compounding pharmacy to fill their compound.
Request a bid
User’s can request a bid for any medication in their database by searching for that medication and inputting the desired quantity. The user will then receive the bids in a given period of time. The user then must pay a fee to view the bid for their medication.
User’s can locate hard to find medication through this feature. If a pharmacy in the user’s defined area has it in stock, the user can then communicate with the pharmacy for a fee.
Comprehensive Medication Review
The comprehensive medication review (CMR) offers much more than the traditional brown-bag review. Pharmacists go beyond review of medication purposes and side effects, and creation of a personal medication list (PML) for the patient. CMRs also assess issues such as adherence, appropriateness of therapy, and opportunities for cost savings, and along with a medication list provide a medication action plan (MAP), detailing the steps to optimize medication therapy.
