Keeping track of your family’s health can get complicated, but there are many ways to make your life easier using technology, such as the Walgreens mobile app. For example, using your smartphone to manage appointments, schedule vaccinations, and even know when to take your pills is a huge help given our hectic lives. When you have kids, it also helps to keep track of medications, especially if you need to share that information with another caregiver or the pediatrician (you can even export the information) at your next appointment. If you need to repeat dosage after a certain amount of hours, you can set up a reminder so you don’t have to be guessing when you need to take your medication.
The free Walgreens app for iPhone is so easy to use. Just download from the app store and enter your personal information, such as your Balance Rewards number and preferred pharmacy. For me it is so convenient to be able to order refills, keep track of when to take a certain pill, or even schedule a flu shot by simply tapping my screen.
You can even configure the app so you can keep track of different family members in one central location, while restricting access to the information. Once you select your favorite pharmacy any refills or prescriptions will be fulfilled at your preferred Walgreens location, so you don’t waste time entering the information over and over again.
If you like receiving text messages, it’s a great idea to enable prescription text alert . This saves so much time! That way you don’t go to the pharmacy before your prescription is ready for you to pick it up.
All of these features come in handy now that the holiday season is here. There are so many things to do that I really am afraid I will forget something important. By using the app, I have more peace of mind because I only write down the prescription once and then my phone reminds me what I need to do. Now I don’t have any more excuses for not taking my daily vitamins!
