CVS Pharmacy app introduces feature for people with visual impairments
CVS Pharmacy has announced Spoken Rx, a new feature to its app that can read a specific prescription label out loud for patients with visual impairments or who cannot read standard print labels. CVS plans to add RFID labels to its prescriptions at 1,500 pharmacy locations by the end of 2020. These smart labels can be scanned by the Spoken Rx feature in the app and then read out loud in either English or Spanish. Spoken Rx will be available in all CVS Pharmacy locations by the end of 2021, the company says.
