PersonalRX acquires N.Y.-based pharmacy MedMinder 

Expands high-touch, one-on-one approach to all patients in New York, including Medicaid

PersonalRX, the home delivery pharmacy that places the patient at the center of care, on Wednesday said it acquired the MedMinder pharmacy in Brooklyn, New York. This marks PersonalRX’s growth into the Empire State, and allow it to serve all New York-based patients — including those that are members of NY MRX, the Medicaid Pharmacy Program.

PersonalRX, which is a Mail Service Pharmacy accredited by URAC, was created to support patients that take five or more medications. Designed with the patient in mind, PersonalRX provides patients with much-needed personal attention. Medication is provided in dose packs, which are clearly labeled with the patient’s name, the drug and the date and time the medication should be taken.

The pharmacy’s customers were automatically transitioned to PersonalRX, which went into effect as of April 3. With PersonalRX, patients’ medication errors are reduced, which improves their health, while they simultaneously save time and have the confidence that their medications will all be delivered on time, every time without any additional cost.

Additionally, all PersonalRX patients receive:

  • Dedicated personal care coordinator;
  • 24/7 access to pharmacist;
  • Automatic refills; and
  • Coordination between doctors and insurance.

“Pharmacists have a growing role to play in health care delivery, and this acquisition positions PersonalRX to best support patients in New York,” Lawrence Margolis, CEO, PersonalRX, said. “At PersonalRX, delivering a superior patient experience is at the core of everything we do, and we are excited to bring a new level of services to these patients.”
