Telehealth is the solution for one leading U.S. Pharmacy
Recent and evolving CDC recommendations for social distancing measures and stay-at-home protocols have energized Walgreens to expand its teleheath capabilities, providing broader, effective care to patients when and where they need it. Walgreens announced the expansion plan on Thursday, April 9th using its Find Care™ platform.
Find Care™ by Walgreens exists as both a digital platform and marketplace connecting patients in need to providers, health care services, lab testing, urgent care, local clinic services, and more. Through partnership with an expanding list of participating providers like Providence St. Joseph Health, Novant Health, and AmWell, Walgreens is able to address acute and chronic care needs. It added specific efforts in the expansion to meet growing patient needs during this unprecedented time.
During the COVID-19 pandemic, patients across the country—especially in states most impacted like New York, Michigan, and California—will have the ability to:
- Undergo COVID-19 risk assessment
- Access information on clinical trial locations
- Schedule & go through initial physician consultation remotely
- Re/fill prescriptions with next-day delivery options or drive-thru pickup
- Connect with Walgreens pharmacists 24/7
Each of these benefits are provided without requiring patients to ever leave their home. By utilizing the innovative know-how of Walgreens telehealth experts, patients can feel confident that modern care is in the palm of their hands.
