"For people managing multiple daily medications, these tools can make a real difference in helping our members optimize their drug therapy and achieve their best health."

LOUISVILLE, Ky.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Humana Inc. (NYSE: HUM) members can now get reminders to refill prescriptions and track their prescription orders with a few taps on their wrist thanks to the new Humana Pharmacy app for Apple Watch. The new app is one of the first mail order pharmacy apps of its kind for the device and accompanies a major update to the Humana Pharmacy app for iPhone.

The Apple Watch app offers two features:

  • Refill reminders to notify members when it’s time to reorder;
  • Order tracking to show members exactly when their order will arrive.

A third feature that will remind members to take their medicine will be added later this year.

The Apple Watch app will integrate with the features of the newest version of the Humana Pharmacy app for iPhone, making it easy for members to move easily between their Apple Watch and iPhone. New features on the mobile app allow members to:

  • View videos with important safety information about their medications;
  • Use their phone’s camera to scan the barcode on a medication to request a refill;
  • Take a photo of a medication to transfer the prescription from a retail pharmacy to Humana Pharmacy.

“Our new Apple Watch app makes managing medications and adhering to medication therapy easier than ever before,” said William Fleming, President, Humana Pharmacy Solutions. “For people managing multiple daily medications, these tools can make a real difference in helping our members optimize their drug therapy and achieve their best health.”

The app is Humana’s second Apple Watch app. The company launched Cue by Humana in April 2015, which prompts users to take small, daily actions known to result in better health – drink water, focus on breathing, focus on posture, get up and move, get outside and stretch.

The Humana Pharmacy app is available on the App Store for iPhone and from the App Store for Apple Watch, found within the Apple Watch app on iPhone under the Explore tab.
