Ministry pilots medication delivery service

A medication delivery service for Al-Bashir hospital’s chronically-ill patients is being piloted by the Ministry of Health as of Sunday.

The project, dubbed “Your Health, Comfort, is a Priority,” is being carried out in cooperation with the Hakeem Program and Jordan Post Company to help chronically-ill patients order their medications and pay for them online, sparing them time and effort and reducing congestion in healthcare facilities.

According to a statement, the ministry plans to expand the delivery service to include more hospitals and health centers across the Kingdom after the pilot phase at Al-Bashir hospital is completed.

It explained that those who want to access the optional service can sign up using “My Hakeem” application for smart gadgets or, alternately, visit for registration. However, it added, the process requires a one-off visit to the health facility where the patient file is maintained.

The My Hakeem app also allows patients to access their medical information, including their medications, allergies, vaccinations, medical appointments and lab results.
