Drug Topics

Below is an excerpt:

One of the primary drivers of telehealth and telepharmacy is the fact that people like convenience and they are used to getting things quickly and easily, said Rickert, citing the example of automated banking.

"Society as a whole is transitioning over to this idea," said Rickert. "People want accessibility on their iPhones or PCs. And coupled with that, specific to telehealth and telepharmacy, issues of access and convenience are making it easier for patients to obtain healthcare, which will also help to increase compliance and improve outcomes."
