- Medihive’s pharmacy product, HasHealth, announces significant partnership with UK’s longest-established chain of community pharmacies, Rowlands Pharmacy
- The six-figure deal is projected to cover almost 6,000 pharmacies across the UK
Medihive’s pharmacy product, HasHealth, has announced a partnership with Rowlands Pharmacy, the UK’s longest-established chain of community pharmacies, as its online booking provider for clinical services. The move comes as Rowlands Pharmacy strives to provide an improved booking experience for patients and reduce time-consuming administration tasks for pharmacy staff.
HasHealth will be instrumental in achieving this goal as the Irish healthcare software solution provides a seamless booking system, innovative wait-list features, medical pre-screen questionnaires, and resource management capabilities to effortlessly transform everyday workflows and patient experiences.
David Crimmins, CEO of Medihive comments on the new partnership;
“Medihive’s pharmacy product, HasHealth, is delighted to support Rowlands Pharmacy in its new digitalisation strategy and rollout of clinical services. Rowlands Pharmacy has done an incredible job during the pandemic; we believe the industry is perfectly placed to provide front-line support to patients with a range of chronic conditions and support patients in staying healthy.”
“To do this, it is crucial to free up pharmacists’ time, allowing them to expand their role in the community while also improving the efficiency of the patient journey. HasHealth does this by automating patient communication and clinical data capture, giving pharmacists up to 20 hours back per week” states Olan O’Sullivan, Head of Growth at HasHealth.
HasHealth is part of Medihive, a software company built to transform medical processes that don’t work so patients can benefit from healthcare that does work. The organisation provides sophisticated software and clinical solutions to the healthcare, pharmacy, and insurance industries, as well as direct to consumers.
HasHealth drives digitalisation by using cutting-edge technology to create a purpose-built platform for community pharmacies. Some of the benefits of the software solution include:
- Patients have the ability to manage their own in-clinic appointments via an online booking system
- Integrated pre-screen forms save up to 15 minutes per in-clinic appointment and afford patients the privacy of filling in forms in the comfort of their own homes
- Flexibility to manage new clinical services at Head Office and branch level, simplifying rollout and management processes
- Resource management capabilities, such as waiting lists and appointment limits based on vaccine supply and pharmacist availability
- Healthcare accessibility and digitalisation with integrated video and online payment features
“We pride ourselves on listening to our staff,” states Nigel Swift, Managing Director at Rowlands Pharmacy;
“Based on feedback, we knew we could do better with our digital proposition for clinical services and flu vaccinations in particular. We considered developing our own system but we were impressed with the wealth of features available with Medihive’s pharmacy product, HasHealth, and how quick and easy it was to set up and integrate with our existing systems. The software provides management flexibility to our staff and the white-label option was perfect because it allowed us to keep customers under our own brand.”
As part of this international, six-figure partnership, Medihive is now supporting over 400 pharmacies and is expected to take on the management of online bookings for up to 5,500 pharmacies in the near future, as the partnership also covers Numark Pharmacy, one of the UK’s largest drug buying groups.
Jeremy Meader, MD Numark, comments;
“Now that we have successfully integrated HasHealth into our Rowlands Operations, we can focus on adding this to our Hey Pharmacist product. This would allow our patients and customers to book services in their participating Hey Pharmacist Numark branch and give these Numark members access to the time-saving benefits.”
