Uber Eats & Nimble Announce On-Demand Prescription Delivery in Atlanta
Friday, March 26th, 2021
Uber Technologies, Inc. and Nimble announced the expansion of their partnership and launch of on-demand prescription delivery in Atlanta. All Uber Eats users in this region will now have access to prescription delivery right to their doorstep in as little as one hour, which is faster than any other prescription delivery service.
Through this partnership, consumers can get their medications delivered quickly, from the safety and comfort of their homes. Users can easily transfer existing prescriptions — or fulfill new ones — from neighborhood pharmacies right from the Uber Eats app. From there, Nimble’s network of quality neighborhood pharmacies coordinates fulfillment, and Uber Eats delivers the prescription directly to consumers. Controlled substances are ineligible, as are prescriptions paid for — in whole or in part — by any government healthcare program such as Medicare, Medicaid, or TRICARE.
“We’re evolving Uber Eats to become your go-to destination for much more than food from your favorite local spots in Atlanta. That’s why we are so excited to announce that we’re one step closer to delivering that reality to Atlantans with the launch of on-demand prescription delivery, powered by our partner Nimble,” said Kiran Vinta, Uber’s U.S. GM for New Verticals. “We’re always gathering feedback from our users, and it’s clear that they’re looking for ways to safely and conveniently get more of the things they need, and we’re proud to bring the magic of Uber to prescription delivery.”
There are more than 700 independently owned and operated pharmacies in Georgia, serving as the backbone of their communities’ health and wellness needs. Nimble vets and works with these types of pharmacies, arming them with the technology and infrastructure needed to provide simpler, more convenient patient experiences. With this expansion into the major metro of Atlanta, Nimble continues to champion neighborhood pharmacies, providing them opportunities to retain and grow their customer base by working with partners as committed to consumer needs as Uber.
