Delaware Public Health Series

CarePortMD and the Delaware Division of Public Health recently completed a multi-week tour of Delaware’s independent pharmacy network in an effort to better integrate community pharmacists with multidisciplinary care teams delivering personalized care for chronic diseases. The purpose of the tour was to familiarize pharmacies with State and Federally-funded programs aimed combating the epidemics of diabetes and hypertension, and provide pathways for their engagement. The second arm of this project is to amplify existing efforts of the State and organizations like Quality Insights to deliver impactful clinical support resources. CarePortMD will continue to serve as a hub for clinical access, scheduling logistics and resource distribution for collaborative care across the region.
