FamilyWize Unveils their New and Improved Mobile App, Optimizing User Experience

FamilyWize’s updated mobile app provides a faster and easier way to save on prescriptions

BETHLEHEM, PA—August 10, 2017FamilyWize announced today the launch of their new mobile app, its most streamlined version yet. FamilyWize, an organization that offers families and individuals access to their medications at a more affordable cost, has significantly enhanced the app’s performance and capabilities. Users can take advantage of the upgraded Drug Price Look-up Tool, which makes it even easier to identify local pharmacies with the lowest FamilyWize price on their medications. Additionally, consumers can utilize pill and refill reminders, enjoy a faster user interface, and experience high-end designs. Smartphone users can download the new FamilyWize mobile app at the iOS App Store and Google Play.

“Today’s patients are more reliant on mobile applications to fulfill their everyday needs,” said Kristel Schimmoller, Vice President of Product Innovation at FamilyWize. “We want our app to be as simple as possible for people looking for the lower, FamilyWize price on their medications. The new version makes the process of saving on your prescriptions with FamilyWize even easier.”

The FamilyWize app now also offers the Medicine Cabinet, a cost-effective tool that gives users the ability to create a profile to bundle their prescriptions and save medications for future price look-ups. With the Medicine Cabinet, consumers can tailor their experience by identifying the most affordable option for their prescription: generic versus brand, and which pharmacy has the lowest FamilyWize price near their home zip code. The tool also allows for the addition or removal of prescriptions, changes in dosage, and preferred pharmacy location.

FamilyWize is accepted at most major retail and independent pharmacies nationwide, covering all FDA-approved prescription medications. Consumers are able to save an average of around 40 percent on medications using the Free FamilyWize Prescription Discount Card, which they simply show to the pharmacist upon pickup. The card is free and has no eligibility requirements. To date, FamilyWize has helped over 10 million Americans save more than $1 billion on their prescription drugs.
