Propeller Health expands access to in-app pharmacy services from CVS, Walmart & more

Propeller Health announced Nov. 19 that users of its digital health management platform can now directly access pharmacy services from CVS, Walmart, Kroger and Rite-Aid within the Propeller app.

The newly expanded My Pharmacy feature, which initially included only Walgreens in its January 2019 launch, allows Propeller users — asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease patients — to manage prescription refills and locate nearby pharmacies without leaving the app.

My Pharmacy and its recently expanded access were added to the Propeller app's offerings in an effort to reduce the "additional burden" medication management adds to the lives of those with asthma and COPD, the company's co-founder and CTO, Greg Tracy, said in the announcement.

In addition to providing pharmacy services, Propeller uses sensors attached to inhalers that provide patients and their care teams with insights on medication use, symptom triggers and environmental factors, allowing for the creation of more personalized and effective treatment plans.
