February 22, 2013

New mobile application enables on-the-go access to prescription drug information, history and refills across multiple platforms

Montreal, QC (February 22, 2013) – TELUS Health is pleased to announce the launch of the mobile version of TELUS Pharma Space, an application which enables users to manage their personal prescription drug record and that of family members directly from their iPhone, BlackBerry and Android devices. TELUS Health is the first company in Quebec to offer mobile access to the pharmacy prescription drug record and to allow refills on these three mobile platforms.

The TELUS Pharma Space mobile application enables patients to access the solution’s most popular functionalities, including:

  • access to users’ prescription drug records and refill history
  • the ability to submit prescription refill requests directly to their pharmacy
  • access to relevant and up-to-date information for each prescription taken by the user.

“This new mobile application leverages TELUS’ advanced and secure wireless technology to quickly deliver access to prescription drug information,” says Paul Lepage, President of TELUS Health. “The TELUS Pharma Space mobile application contributes to facilitating communication between pharmacists and their patients, an important factor in ensuring continuity of therapeutic treatment, prescription drug adherence and ultimately, better health outcomes.”

Creating a Pharma Space account is simple. Patients need only obtain their distinct user name and password from their pharmacist. Once registration is complete, patients will have access to their own user-friendly, secure personal prescription drug record.

Users with iPhone, BlackBerry and Android devices may obtain the TELUS Pharma Space mobile application at their devices’ respective app store. The application is offered free of charge to all patients of pharmacies subscribed to TELUS Pharma Space’s mobility option.

As the mobile application is currently available only at select banners, chains and independent pharmacies, patients are encouraged to speak with their pharmacist to discuss TELUS Pharma Space availability and access.
