Trump Is Empowering Local Pharmacies — And Transforming Health Care For The Better

Excerpt:

President Donald Trump announced Friday that the federal government will partner with the private sector to cut red tape and clear the way for safe, effective, convenient and affordable community testing for the coronavirus. This makes perfect sense. The president does not want to hear the ten ways things cannot get done — he wants to hear the ten ways in which it will be done. If it is moral, ethical, legal and needed, then let’s do it without delay.

We know that 95 percent of Americans live within five miles of a retail pharmacy. Pharmacists are the most accessible health care provider for many Americans, and they already perform a wide range of health services beyond prescriptions and over-the-counter medical products. Within the scope of practice of pharmacists is the ability to conduct health and wellness testing, to manage chronic diseases and medication, to administer immunizations, to work and partner with others in the health care frontlines to advance health and wellness, and to help reduce the need for doctor, clinic or hospital visits.

The more a local pharmacy can do for the individual, the more burden is taken off the delivery of necessary, vital medical attention to those who need it most.

Now is the time to allow local pharmacies to step up, in light of the coronavirus crisis, to take the burden off the medical delivery system nationwide. There is no doubt that, very soon, Americans will be able to get tested at their local pharmacies.

The good news is that local pharmacies all across America, from cities and suburbs to rural areas, can seamlessly ramp up quickly to provide coronavirus testing.

The coronavirus danger has a silver lining: The president and his task force have changed the way we respond to viral and pandemic events. They are empowering existing networks of pharmacies to immediately become engaged in detection, testing, managing and reporting while providing needed services locally to those most at risk.

Amazing what can be done when you're not hindered by a political agenda, eh?
