Pharmacy Fulfillment Options for Virtual Care

Find a list of the best pharmacy fulfillment companies for virtual care and telehealth prescription fulfillment and delivery and learn what services they offer.

Prior to launching a virtual care or telehealth service, you may want to consider setting up a framework for digital prescription fulfillment and delivery. While larger organizations may decide to build this infrastructure in-house, most partner with a pharmacy fulfillment provider for expediency.

Pharmacy fulfillment companies provide a variety of services:

  • Maintaining a product database

  • Managing stock

  • Accepting cash and/or insurance-based medications

  • Picking and packaging prescriptions

  • Providing multi-dose packaging

  • Providing multi-language support

  • Managing postage and order tracking

  • Managing customer service

  • Completing refunds


It’s important to select a prescription fulfillment provider that meets your organization’s unique needs. The most significant considerations are usually cost, geographic reach, shipping speed, and whether you want to white label your prescriptions with customized branding and packaging.
