Telepharmacies change the way rural America gets meds

AP/Houston Chronicle, September 9, 2008
In 2001, North Dakota lawmakers passed legislation that opened the door for a "telepharmacy" project after dozens of rural pharmacies went out of business. The project began with 10 volunteer sites in 2002 and has grown to 67 locations. The idea now may be catching on in other places, as other states have changed laws to allow for remote pharmacies. Alaska, Idaho, Illinois, Montana, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, Vermont, and Wyoming have all done so, and more are on the way.
