ZOOM Pharmacy is an online pharmacy that ships medications for free in New Zealand. They offer a free sachet packing service, which organises medication into separate biodegradable sachets that are labelled with the date, day of the week, and time of dose.
For people with mobility issues or those in remote locations, getting to a pharmacy on a regular basis for prescription refills can be a challenge. It is especially problematic during the current global pandemic since people are being asked to avoid movement as much as possible to slow the spread of Covid-19.
ZOOM Pharmacy is providing a solution to prescription accessibility issues for people in New Zealand by offering free prescription delivery services. Patients can ask their clinic to send their prescription to ZOOM, or simply submit a photo of their prescription. Medication is delivered for free in 1-2 days if three or more prescriptions are ordered. For 1-2 drugs, there is a $5 shipping fee.
People on four or more medications can benefit from the free sachet packing service, which is a biodegradable and easy-open alternative to blister packs. Each sachet is labelled with the name of the patient, what medicines and dose are inside, and the date, day of the week, and time to take the medication.
Moving to an online pharmacy service will aid in keeping people safe from the coronavirus while saving time, money, and stress on the commute to the pharmacy.
