Course Overview:
In this program we will look at telepharmacy – past, present, a future. The needs for some form of remote delivery of pharmacy services is best seen through the stories of the rural areas losing their pharmacies; pharmacists leaving the small towns of America for more opportunities in the big cities; and the impact on the people left behind with no close access to medications. We will look at pharmacy’s response to these needs. Unable to look at every state in detail, we will look closely at the first states to respond to the need and to develop laws to find ways to delivery prescriptions to areas with no pharmacies and no pharmacists. These states were the innovators and every other state is, in some ways, judged against them. North Dakota developed a complete set of rules for telepharmacy and it will be the focus of our look at telepharmacy. We will look at other states then as they adopt new and different rules.
