Walgreens to link up with FedEx on next-day drug...

Walgreens is teaming up with FedEx to launch a nationwide next-day delivery service for prescription drugs.

Walgreens said patients can have qualifying prescriptions delivered to their doorstep as early as the next day for $4.99.

Several venture-backed startups also offer same-day prescription delivery or websites that allow you to pay in advance for drugs and pick them up at a drugstore of your choice. "Going forward, we will continue to transform our pharmacies to create neighborhood healthcare destinations that offer a wide range of accessible health and well-being services", said Smulevitz.

Patients will get a text when their prescriptions are ready and they can then choose between a home delivery option or express pickup in-store. "This expansion of our alliance with FedEx illustrates our commitment to making filling prescriptions as fast and easy as possible". Patients who prefer collecting prescriptions at their local Walgreens can enter a dedicated Walgreens Express pickup checkout line to receive their prescriptions.

This is not the first time that Walgreens and FedEx have partnered; previous year they unveiled a collaboration to offer FedEx drop off and pick up at more than 7,000 Walgreens stores across the country.

Walgreens' goal to maintain market presence in the midst of disruption in the service of its patients likely necessitated the partnership with FedEx. Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc. and CVS Health both run more than 9,000 USA locations. Approximately 8 million customers interact with Walgreens in stores and online each day, using the most convenient, multichannel access to consumer goods and services and trusted, cost-effective pharmacy, health and wellness services and advice.

While Amazon's service has yet to launch - potentially the very reason CVS chose to launch its own service in June with Walgreens following suit - Amazon will seek to leverage its massive reach and mastery over fulfillment and last-mile delivery to lead in this aspect of the healthcare space.

The firm says it is 'designed to provide the best possible customer experience in the USA for people who take multiple daily prescriptions'. For more details, talk to a Walgreens pharmacist. Same-day delivery is available in Dallas, Chicago, New York City, Gainesville, Miami, Tampa, and Fort Lauderdale.

Extended hour pharmacies are those open 14 hours or more daily.
