Pharmatrust Uses Video Chat to Connect You with a Pharmacist

The PharmaTrust prescription kiosk is unlike any ATM or vending machine you've ever seen. The kiosk is a convenient pharmacy, and one that can be placed in any location. Patients go up to the PharmaTrust kiosk, insert their prescription, scan their health card, then pick up the phone and talk personally to an on-call pharmacist. The pharmacist determines if the medication is correct/appropriate and then the prescription is ready 5 to 10 minutes later.

The PharmaTrust kiosk has advantages in that it allows patients in remote locations, or ones unable to get to a pharmacy, to receive medication in other ways.
