If 2020 is the year that telemedicine went prime time, it’s no shock to the system that prescription pharmaceuticals are taking a similar, digital direct-to-consumer path.
And as the prescription drug sector undergoes its own digital shift, PYMNTS’ November Provider Ranking of Prescription Apps is the ideal remedy for those who watch the movers and shakers in the category for telltale signs of the rising Rx super-apps of the day after tomorrow.
The Top 5
Moving up one spot and new at No. 1 is RxSaver from the good folks at RetailMeNot, followed at No. 2 by the SingleCare app rising one spot from the previous Rx ranking. At No. 3 we find mammoth CVS Caremark rising two spots, with the OptumRx pharmacy care services holding steady at No. 4. Closing out the Top 5 this month is a big gainer, grocery chain Publix and its Publix Pharmacy app climbing two spot to land in the Top 5.
The Top 10
Another big grocery chain retains its spot at No. 6 on the PYMNTS Provider Ranking of Prescription Apps, and it’s KrogerRxSC unmoved at that spot. New to the No. 7 chart position is pharmacy benefit management app Express Scripts rising one spot, with the RxLocal discount app also climbing one spot to grab No. 8 this go around. At No. 9 is newcomer, Blink Health making its debut in the Provider Ranking of Prescription Apps, with another new face, CleverRX, entering the Top 10 at No. 10 in the current rankings.
