Primary Health Care Corporation (PHCC) has announced the launch of an SMS service to remind the patients of their medication schedule via health centers' pharmacies that have already been automatically prescribed by the attending physician a week before the date of dispensing the medication.
Through this service, the patients are reminded again of the schedule of dispensing the prescribed medication three days before the exact schedule once the patient has not received his medication, either through visiting the health center or through capitalizing on the delivery service to homes.
In this regard, the Director of Health Information Systems at PHCC Alexandra Tarazi said that the service will also be available in the future on the phone application "Nar'aakom" of PHCC, in addition to the medication delivery service through access to the personal account on the application.
For her part, the Director of Pharmacy at PHCC, Dr. Manal Al Zaidan pointed out the continuation of the application of the medication delivery service to homes in collaboration with Qatar Post through the contact with the telephone numbers of the health centers via WhatsApp application that was dedicated to each health center, clarifying that the service is available right now for the whole people who had registered their names in the health centers, affirming that PHCC has the entire required medicines with ample quantities, adding that people should not be concerned about any potential shortage of any type of medicines.
