The Advantages of Refilling Prescriptions Online
Prescription medications are necessary for the health and wellbeing of many Canadians. However, the process of obtaining refill prescriptions in person can be inconvenient and stressful. Scheduling appointments, driving to your physician’s office, and sitting in crowded waiting rooms takes time and may be especially taxing when you’re not feeling well.
Until now, in-person doctor’s appointments were the only way to refill a prescription. Today, online prescription refills are changing all of that.
Recent advancements in telehealth technology now allow you to legally refill your prescriptions online
. EQ care offers online prescription refills for all of our patients. The process is safe, secure and provides numerous benefits to our customers.
Online refill prescriptions are perfect if you:
- Are busy and want to save time by eliminating unnecessary commutes
- Live in a remote area
- Have physical challenges that affect your mobility
- Need access to care while travelling
- Need access to care in a country where you don’t speak the language
- Have recently moved and do not have access to a family doctor
Why Refill Prescriptions Online?
At EQ Care, we have made the online prescription refill process fast, easy and convenient, prompting an increasing number of patients to switch to the online refill method. In turn, this shift has made both physicians and patients realize the numerous key benefits of online prescriptions:
• Shorter wait times
Traditionally, it’s rare to book a doctor’s appointment on the same day. With EQ Care, however, you can schedule a same-day appointment with ease and refill a prescription online quickly for simpler, faster access to treatment.
• Less time spent in a Doctor’s office when you are feeling unwell
Those with a compromised immune system, or who are not feeling well may have trouble getting to and from their doctor’s office for an appointment. Virtual appointments with an EQ Care physician makes it possible to see a doctor from your home and fill your prescription online for less hassle and stress.
• Clear and easy to read prescription’s
Handwritten prescriptions may cause legibility errors that can be extremely detrimental and even life threatening when it comes to filling your prescription. Online prescription refills avoid these types of errors completely.
• Transparent and easy to follow medical history
When refilling your prescriptions easily online, physicians can immediately see your full medical history. This allows the person filling your prescription to instantly receive notifications such as, negative drug interactions, allergies, etc. and will avoid the need to memorize drug-drug interactions or manually comb through your medication list.
• Pharmacy staff will be less consumed with less modern paper prescriptions
The paperwork that is often a burden caused by prescription refills has notoriously taken up considerable amounts of the physicians’ and administrative staff’s time. This means longer wait times for you, the patient. With online prescription refills, multiple prescriptions can be reviewed, authorized and transmitted to the pharmacy of your choice, all in a matter of minutes!
