Creators Of The Rewarding Membership Network For MMJ Patients.NextRX Inc. has created a network to streamline check-ins and reward patients who use Medical Marijuana (MMJ). Using the NextRX check-in system means that your registration is smooth, seamless, and secure, as well as HIPAA compliant. All you have to do is register with NextRX at a participating dispensary with your driver’s license and a valid MMJ Patient Recommendation. Then, just sign the dispensary’s user agreement, and you’ll receive an RX-Pass with your unique identification number that you can use to register and check-in at all other participating dispensaries. Plus, with NextRX, you earn reward points for your prescriptions. It’s like frequent flier miles -- but for pot. The rewards act as cash, and you can use them to purchase your medicine at any in-network dispensary. Dispensaries benefit by using the NextRX database to manage patient records, monitor inventory, keep track of patients’ purchases, and issue and redeem the loyalty reward points. So far, NextRX has built a network of about 16,000 patients through a few beta user dispensaries, and now they’re ready to expand and grow -- one dispensary and MMJ prescription at a time.
