Mobile E-Prescribing Pioneer Is Launching into Space

The Healthiverse® Just Got Bigger!

iPrescribe®, the leading mobile e-prescribing app by health tech pioneer DrFirst, is reaching for the stars with a new feature that allows doctors to prescribe for their patients who are space travelers.

Physicians on Earth can now easily prescribe medications for astronauts, who can print them in real time! Our patent-pending 3D printer cartridge allows astronauts to print the 50 most commonly prescribed medications.

This new feature beats consumer expectations about the future of healthcare, according to our recent survey that revealed nearly a third of Americans (31%) expect health services for space travelers will be available by the year 2053.
