About ScriptSave WellRx

ScriptSave offers a free savings card to access reduced pricing on brand name and generic medicines. ScriptSave’s mission is to help users improve and maintain wellness, with not only better access to affordable medications but also a full-featured app experience that demonstrates the connection between everyday activities and good health.

Helping the uninsured and underinsured reduce the high cost of prescription medications, ScriptSave offers a free savings card to access reduced pricing on brand name and generic medicines. The organization is part of the MedImpact, Inc. family of pharmacy benefit management (PBM) companies, and its WellRx mobile app connects users with more than 65,000 pharmacy partners nationwide.


The Challenge

The ScriptSave team recognized that additional features in WellRx could create added value, encouraging users to integrate an ongoing focus on health and wellness into daily life. The initial WellRx app was functional but fell short of the more immersive user experience ScriptSave wanted to deliver, including a more comprehensive medicine chest and food index flexible to the needs of individual users. ScriptSave wanted to create a world-class user experience, grounded in a scalable and maintainable mobile framework.

“We wanted our WellRx mobile app to provide additional features to help users with drug adherence and have the ability to choose the right foods as they shop, alongside access to real-time personal wellness insights applicable to their specific health status,”
— Jane Schmitt, Technical Product Manager, ScriptSave

Persona Research

User research and interviews with real users was a challenge with this project due to concerns about HIPPA compliance and ScriptSave’s dedication to keeping its user’s health information safe and secure. Several elaboration session and interviews where done with the business subject matter experts. I also supplemented research by reaching out to multiple members of the community to and medical professionals to identify users who where willing to share their experience using prescription savings card and applications.
