Pharmacist might be receptive to this idea because they might be able to reach out more to the patient. However, it depends if the health care services system are up to date to allow this to happen?

System updates is the first step before we discuss regarding receptiveness of pharmacies using digital apps - Chun 21 months ago
This is done personally, right now with the RPh. Apps have liabiity. - Dr. David E. 21 months ago

Don't see the value unless embedded in the pharmacy IT system.
Software applications on all Rx platforms already include available information and interaction checking.

Yes but do they take into account the patient"s EMR and PGx? - Ed 22 months ago

That is the problem.
Private medical office or hospital systems are not integrated typically.
If health-system owned, they may or may not be integrated to some or full extent.

I do not think that many pharmacies offer such interactive advice. In part perhaps because patients already receive printed information (package insert) on drugs they have been prescribed. However, this may not be the case with compounding pharmacies so in this case an interactive advice might be more appropriate and useful. I would certainly welcome an extensive use of such approach in general as a part of RWD.

Agreed; avoid redundant info. More is not always better - Dr. David E. 21 months ago
