Status (overview) of bill:https://olis.oregonlegislature.gov/liz/2021R1/Measures/Overview/SB629
This bill allows pharmacist to use telepharmacy to deliver pharmacy services to patient at remote location, elderly and disabled.
In small cities that cannot support a full-time pharmacist, many residents must travel considerable distances to pick up their prescriptions or depend on others to pick them up for them. This can cause many to either go without their needed medication or have their treatment delayed. SB 629 would allow a pharmacist to consult over electronic means with pharmacy techs to fill prescriptions and communicate with patients.
