Exclusive webinar: The Role of Telehealth in Retail Healthcare, presented by DSN/CCA
More and more, retail pharmacies and retail clinics are leveraging telehealth solutions to both expand the scope of care they provide as well as expand patient access to high quality, low cost health care.
To help key healthcare stakeholders and industry professionals keep up with the latest thinking in how telehealth is helping to revolutionize the delivery of healthcare in America, Drug Store News and the Convenient Care Aassociation will host the exclusive webinar, “The Role of Telehealth in Retail Healthcare,” on Thursday, Nov. 5.
Presented by Tobias Barker, VP, medical operations, MinuteClinic, the webinar — part of the six-part, DSN/CCA Retail Healthcare Webinar Series — will explore the use of telehealth in retail-based clinics and retail settings and provide expert analysis of the regulatory landscape and the implications related to deploying a telehealth solution. From in-store health stations, to innovative point-of-care cloud-based testing tools and more, telehealth is allowing patients/consumers to access comprehensive, high-quality healthcare and health information in convenient locations. As with many new entrants into healthcare, regulations regarding telehealth and telehealth services are appearing in every state and are ripe with the possibility for unintended consequences for providers.

Daily Diversion: Larry David for president?
Last week, the Internet noted that Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders speaks to “Seinfeld” co-creator and “Curb Your Enthusiasm” star Larry David’s impression of George Steinbrenner. As if to prove that it has its finger on the pulse, “Saturday Night Live” tapped David to play Sanders in the cold open to Saturday’s episode that parodied last week’s Democratic presidential debate, which is embedded above.
“I don’t have a super PAC. I don’t even have a backpack,” David said as Sanders. “I carry my stuff around loose in my arms like a professor between classes.”
