The agreement enables patients of state-run hospitals and health facilities using “Hakim”, an automated healthcare system, to order monthly medicines through the drug delivery service on the Hakim’ application.

The Jordan Post will then deliver special parcels of medicine to patients at fixed fees that are paid electronically without the need to visit the health centers, according to a press release.

The new service includes 17 health facilities, including the main Al Bashir Hospital and health centers and clinics in Amman’s various districts. More health facilities will be added at a later stage.

The agreement will save patients the time and effort, as they can easily order their medication online, which reaches them quickly and safely, said EHS CEO Omar Ibrahim, who signed the agreement with Jordan Post Director Khaled Al-Laham.

Laham noted that the home delivery of medication, particularly to the elderly, will spare them the effort to go to health facilities to fetch their medication. He added that Jordan Post offers quality postal, logistical, and financial services in line with global standards, which adopted new business approaches, including the delivery of medicines to patients on their addresses in cooperation with the health sector.

This service is an added value to Jordan Post, Laham said.
