Walmart Canada launches e-prescription service


Walmart Canada and Canada Health Infoway have announced Infoway’s PrescribeIT electronic prescribing service available in 14 Walmart Canada pharmacies in Ontario, Alberta, Saskatchewan and New Brunswick—with plans to expand to more stores by year-end.

PrescribeIT allows prescribers to send prescriptions and renewals electronically to a patient’s pharmacy of choice, resulting in more efficient patient care, enhanced safety and improved communication between clinicians.

“Walmart Canada is one of Canada’s largest retailers and pharmacy chains and we are thrilled to partner with them,” said Jamie Bruce, executive vice president, Infoway. “PrescribeIT will make it easier and more convenient for thousands of Walmart pharmacy patients to get their prescriptions filled, and it will improve the workflow of Walmart pharmacists and their communication with prescribers. We look forward to working with Walmart Canada as we continue to expand PrescribeIT across the country.”
