Mail order meds tied to fewer ER visits
from MedPage Today
Diabetic adults using a mail order pharmacy had significantly fewer emergency department visits than those filling prescriptions at retail drugstores, researchers found. Among patients younger than 65, use of a mail order pharmacy was associated with significantly fewer overall emergency department visits, preventable emergency department visits, and serum creatinine laboratory monitoring tests following the initiation of angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor or angiotensin receptor blocker therapy compared with using a local pharmacy.
