Patients can be treated online by the doctor and immediately receive medicines from the local pharmacy. Two pioneers in digitization in the healthcare market show how it works: Germany's market leader in the healthcare market, NOVENTI, connects the online doctor's practice Zava to the currently 5,000 pharmacies across Germany via the pharmacy platform callmyApo. This means that patients will be able to order the medication they need from the pharmacy of their choice directly after the digital consultation with just a few clicks.

With telemedicine, Zava already saves its patients waiting times for the doctor's appointment or in the doctor's office. By bridging the gap to local pharmacies, the time to drug treatment will be further shortened. After approval by the tele-doctor, the prescription is sent directly to the pharmacy of your choice via callmyApo. There are no unnecessary journeys, as patients are conveniently informed as soon as the required medication is ready to be picked up from their pharmacy of choice. An increase in sales for pharmacies in Germany.

Dr. Hermann Sommer, CEO NOVENTI: "Working with Zava closes the circle: The patient is advised and treated online by the doctor and can decide with one click to which local pharmacy his prescription should be digitally transmitted, ie with our connection we send the prescriptions from the mail order companies abroad back to the local pharmacy. " This strengthens the stationary pharmacy, which was previously excluded from telemedical prescriptions.

The service is free of charge for pharmacy customers. The same applies to the pharmacies. A connection to callmyApo is non-discriminatory and immediately possible for all pharmacies in Germany.

"Our goal is to embed medical care in our patients' everyday lives. The combined customer journey of online doctor visits and on-site pharmacies is another important milestone," says David Meinertz, CEO of Zava. Meinertz continues: "The patient has the freedom to choose where and how he takes care of himself."

NOVENTI is the leading designer of the German health market and acts in the service of the local pharmacy. In the future, every pharmacy involved will be able to receive prescriptions from the European market leader Zava electronically. CallmyApo can be used to report back immediately when the medication is ready to be dispensed. A big plus in terms of customer loyalty and customer acquisition for the individual pharmacy on site.


The NOVENTI Group is the market leader in the digital healthcare market in Germany, Germany's largest pharmacy inventory management system and, with over 20 billion euros in prescription billing volume, Europe's largest billing company in the healthcare sector. The pharmacy's own NOVENTI Group, with around 2,000 employees and 25 independent individual companies, has one thing in common: They all operate in the health market with the core target groups pharmacies, other service providers, nursing services and doctors. In addition to financing security, it offers the network platform that promotes the important cross-company transfer of know-how. In addition, the individual companies act independently in their operational business. Sustainability is one of the basic principles of the corporate strategy, NOVENTI was recognized as a climate-neutral company and as a "Great Place to Work".
