We welcome Greg Janes from TelePharm to share the vision of telemedicine delivered by community pharmacies empowered by advanced technology. 

About TelePharm: 

In 2010, Roby Miller’s family owned a chain of six rural retail pharmacies in eastern Iowa. The small communities where their pharmacies were located, thanks largely to policy changes related to payments for prescription medications, weren’t providing enough business to cover the expense of operating a pharmacy. Due to these financial constraints, the family was forced to close one pharmacy and sell another – and the remaining pharmacies were at risk.

TelePharm develops a solution

Then in 2012, the Miller family was approached by a local Health Board to consider bringing a pharmacy back to their community. Wanting to help, Roby founded TelePharm and developed a solution that would be affordable, easy to maintain, and feasible in low-volume rural locations. In October 2012, they opened Iowa’s first telepharmacy and began helping others to bring local pharmacies back to their communities. Since then, others have realized the value in the model that TelePharm created and more telepharmacies have opened across the United States. The number of TelePharm Pharmacies, as well as our team, continue to grow today.
