TelePharmacy allows us to efficiently address patients' needs and can integrate pharmacists into direct medical care. Learn from one such pharmacist that staffs the HIV clinics that includes the HIV community at large and the Department of Corrections. These pharmacists address and order medications, vaccines and needed clinic visits, along with renewing HIV medications for the next year and independently operating the TelePrEP program.

The topics for this webinar are:

  • Explaining the components needed to do telepharmacy
  • How clinical pharmacist Dr. York actually conducts his outpatient clinics for the Department of Corrections, TelePrEP
  • Explaining plan for in-patient telepharmacy
  • Krystal Fimbres explains how to interact with the different EMRs to provide seamless linkup with patients
