About Rx Open

Rx Open helps patients find nearby open pharmacies in areas impacted by disaster. Combining multiple data feeds from the pharmaceutical industry, Rx Open displays the precise location on Google Maps of open pharmacies, closed pharmacies, and those whose status is unknown. This critical information assists government officials in assessing an emergency’s impact on public health in a disaster area.

Healthcare Ready provides Rx Open to the public at no cost during a disaster through the generous support of our leadership and from the NCPDP Foundation, who provides grant support and the dataQ® pharmacy data file.

To enroll your pharmacy email ContactUs@HealthcareReady.org. Participation in Rx Open is free. If the status of your pharmacy is not consistent with what is shown on the Rx Open maps, please contact us at ContactUs@HealthcareReady.org.

This is a service provided by NCPA ( National Community Pharmacist Assoc) whose membership is almost exclusively independent pharmacies/Pharmacists  Under these natural disaster issues… it is those dealing with chronic pain and other subjective diseases that require taking a controlled substances.  With many pharmacies requiring pts to not filled/refill these medications until they are down to no more than a couple of days supply many pts are caught in a situation where they have to “bug-out” and the last thing they need is being thrown into withdrawal and deal with elevate/untreated pain at the same time.
