Why build a medicine delivery application?
Firstly, the global online pharmacies market is expected to reach around $107.53 billion by 2025.* During lockdown, businesses with no online presence failed. These are extraordinary times for healthcare industry, but they're only accelerating what was happening already – what changed was the timeline. Home delivery apps became essential to every business, overnight. The pharmacy industry is no different. Now is the time to build an online medicine delivery application.
Benefits of pharmacy apps
Rather than an over-the-counter chat in a busy pharmacy, customers can have a private video consultation or order the medicines they need from home.
Data security is vital for any online store, for medicine orders it’s even more essential. Our HIPAA and HL7 compliant apps will keep all your patients’ data secure.
Push notifications or SMS messages are helpful for repeat prescriptions (and repeat business). You can add a handy feature that reminds customers to take their medication at set times.
It’s so easy
Regular Customers can order medicines online from their sofa. On-demand medicine delivery app is particularly useful when illness (or risk of infection) prevents them from coming in-store.
Discounts and offers
Customers already compare prices of healthcare products online. By offering discounts on your app based on their behaviour, you can build a loyal customer base.

Frequently asked questions about pharmacy apps
How much does pharmacy app development cost?
Builder Studio gives you control over the cost of your medicine delivery app development. Add a feature (shopping cart for your online store for example) and your price goes up, remove features you don’t need (maybe you don’t want Facebook login?) and the price goes down. If you want it delivered faster your medicine app’s cost goes up. For a more relaxed build time the price of your healthcare app goes down. Where your development team is based affects your price too. What you do know is that you’ll get a guaranteed price upfront. And this never goes up.
How much time will it take to develop your pharmacy app?
You can choose a faster delivery time for your online store. Once you’ve spec’ed out exactly what you need for your medicine delivery services.
