Is this the Uber of pharmacies? These entrepreneurs think ordering prescription drugs needs a revamp

Is this the Uber of pharmacies? These entrepreneurs think ordering prescription drugs needs a revamp | Pharmacies: the missing link?... | Scoop.it
Drugstores see themselves as so much more than purveyors of toiletries and drugs. Before Duane Reade’s makeover, I never would have thought of it as a place to eat sushi, let alone grab a growler of beer. But drugstores are going through kind of an awkward transformation in their quest to be taken seriously as healthcare facilities. Still, even though many of these large retailers want to give you vaccines and help you manage your chronic condition, and CVS Heath ditched the smokes, they can’t seem to let go of the candy and alcohol. Like I said. Awkward.

In the process, the pharmacist is being recognized as a key player on the healthcare stage and a main protagonist in the delivery of effective, outcomes-based care.

Independent pharmacies fared worse than the big chains; 72 percent of those the Tribune tested neglected to warn the reporter/patient about an interaction and didn’t bother contacting the prescribing physician. CVS, Target, Kmart and Costco all had failure rates of at least 60 percent, though the Tribune stopped testing at Target in its two-year investigation after CVS took over pharmacy operations in Target stores a year ago last week.
