CVS/pharmacy introduces Rx text alerts

Woonsocket, R.I. -- CVS/pharmacy has introduced a program that allows pharmacy patients to receive immediate notification via text message when their prescription is ready to be picked up, the drugstore chain said.

Order Ready Text Messaging, which is available on nearly all mobile carriers, offers text alerts in English and Spanish. Customers interested in enrolling into Order Ready Text Messaging can do so by speaking to a pharmacy staff member or visiting CVS.com/text. Standard message rates apply.

The new offering complements the chain's current mobile features, including the CVS/pharmacy mobile application, available for iPhone and Android phones, which has the ability to scan and order prescription refills to their local CVS/pharmacy (up to six prescriptions at once) by using the camera in their mobile devices and the CVS/pharmacy app.

"CVS/pharmacy's new prescription Order Ready Text Messaging program allows for easy prescription pick-up by letting our patients know the moment the pharmacist has completed their order," said CVS/pharmacy senior VP and CMO Rob Price.
