Now you can order medicine online in the UAE with talabat app. In this regard, Aster Pharmacy has signed an agreement with talabat UAE, which allows customers to purchase prescription medicines through the app. Aster Pharmacy is a leading pharmacy chain in the UAE owned by Aster DM Healthcare.

Starting from February 2023, talabat users can easily and securely upload their medical prescriptions to the app, which will then be sent to Aster Pharmacy for delivery. The delivery time for prescription medicines is expected to be within 90 minutes, while over-the-counter (OTC) medicines and health and wellness items will have a delivery time of 30 minutes or less.

How to order medicine online in UAE:

  • talabat users upload their medical prescription, Emirates ID and insurance details through the app.
  • Pharmacists from Aster Pharmacy will contact them for any feedback on insurance approvals, counsel on dosage and consumption instructions, as well as answer any questions on the medicines.
  • The service will be available between 10 am to 10 pm in Dubai, during the first phase of the launch.

talabat has put in place a tech-based system to ensure the privacy and security of prescription medicine purchases. The system ensures that any data uploaded as part of the process is not visible or stored within the talabat app. Instead, it is transmitted directly to the systems of Aster Pharmacy, a licensed healthcare provider, which will review and process the uploaded documents.

Medication compliance

Dr. Marwan Al Mulla, CEO of Health Regulation at the DHA congratulated Aster Pharmacy and talabat on the launch of this pioneering initiative.

Dr. Al Mulla said: “Our aim in Dubai is to provide the highest quality of specialised and accessible health care to our community members, and at the same time, enhance their convenience and comfort. Dubai’s health sector has adopted the latest technologies across all aspects of healthcare from delivery to management. Through the use of technology, patients will be able to securely upload prescriptions and get the medicines delivered to their doorstep, a move that will add to their convenience and help ensure medication compliance.

“As more providers come onboard and provide this service, we will continue to enhance convenience for patients and their family members in Dubai. Our aim is to create a complete ecosystem of care that fully utilizes the latest technologies to enhance patient-centered care.”

Commenting on the partnership, Ms. Alisha Moopen, Deputy Managing Director of Aster DM Healthcare, said, “In line with Dubai’s vision to maximize the value of healthcare services delivered by pursuing efficiency, appropriate allocation and utilization of resources, as well as Aster DM Healthcare’s mission to continue to improve accessibility to healthcare, we at Aster Pharmacy are delighted to partner with talabat to provide a first-of-a-kind prescription fulfillment service to talabat customers in the UAE. This partnership will offer users a quick and convenient way to obtain their prescription medicines in addition to the very best health and wellness products. Aster Pharmacy is driven by the purpose of making its health and wellness offerings easily available at the doorsteps of people in the UAE, and we look forward to the partnership with talabat to take another leap in this direction.”

Tatiana Rahal, Managing Director at talabat UAE commented: “With the UAE continuously cementing its position as a tech hub on the world map and adopting innovation across all sectors, we’re proud to partner with Aster Pharmacy to support the government’s efforts in the digitalisation of the health and wellness industry. This partnership enables talabat to provide the communities we operate in with accessibility to an even wider range of offerings that cater to their daily needs. Soon, patients will not only be able to order prescription medication through our platform, but even to schedule in advance their prescription medications on the talabat app.

She added: “At talabat, we are constantly exploring ways to be there for our customers, when they need us, where they need us.”
