RecoMed and Bankmed Bring e-Pharmacy Accessibility to South African Members

RecoMed, a South African health technology innovator, has partnered with Bankmed, a leading medical aid scheme dedicated to the Banking and Financial Services sector, to provide a comprehensive e-Pharmacy solution for seamless access to medication. e-Pharm allows Bankmed members to upload scripts for next-day delivery or in-store collection, with payment at the click of a button across all major metropolitan areas in South Africa.

“We believe in using innovation to enhance our members’ wellbeing,” says Dr Dalen Alexander, Bankmed’s Wellness and Innovations Manager. “Our RecoMed-powered booking portal is such a success, making the move to transform member access to prescriptions as the next logical step. We are constantly focusing on ways in which we can use digitisation to improve health and RecoMed is consistently providing us with the tools we need to do so.”

Since launching e-Pharm in March 2024, Bankmed has seen an increasing number of its members using the platform to order their medication quickly and easily. Currently, the platform leverages a comprehensive integration with Dis-Chem to ensure scripts are processed and delivered, but members can opt-in to collect as well.  e-Pharm also enhances the existing service offerings from Bankmed that include the ability to book Personal Health Assessments and vaccinations.

“Our goal is to continue partnering with pharmacies and healthcare service providers, such as Bankmed, to create increasingly innovative digital health solutions for South Africans,” says Sheraan Amod, Founder and CEO of RecoMed. “We can partner with any institution to create a health solution that fits their customers, market and strategic objectives.”

South Africans currently not members of Bankmed can’t use e-Pharm within the Bankmed portal, however, the RecoMed.co.za platform has its own e-Pharm solution available to anyone on any scheme, even cash-paying customers.

Bankmed customers can visit https://bankmed.recomed.co.za/ to use e-Pharm and to book a Personal Health Assessment. To find out more about RecoMed’s growing portfolio of white-labelled and comprehensively branded services, visit the platform here https://www.recomed.co.za/business/.
