More and more pharmacy services, for 2 out of 3 also telemedicine

Pharmacies continue to evolve and increasingly become a place for providing services as well as dispensing medicines. 97.7% offer blood pressure measurement, 88.5% offer the booking of medicines and other products to collect, the majority provide first-instance tests/analysis such as blood sugar tests (81.6% ), cholesterol (78.4%), triglycerides (73%), 77.4% a CUP service, 65.5% telemedicine services.

From the point of view of citizens, the services most used are the booking of medicines and other products to be collected from the pharmacy (86.5%), the Covid-19 swab (76.8%), the monitoring of parameters (46, 3%), CUP (38.7%) and galenic preparations (34%). These are some of the data emerging from the VI Report on Pharmacy, presented today in Rome and edited by Cittadinanzattiva in collaboration with Federfarma and with the unconditional support of Teva.

“As usual , the Report provides an accurate snapshot of the evolution of the Italian pharmacy, providing useful ideas for building a community pharmacy that is increasingly responsive to the health needs of the population”, states the president of Federfarma Nazionale Marco Cossolo. “This year, telemedicine emerges among the most appreciated services, useful for overcoming inequalities in access to services in the area and lightening the load on public structures . Telemedicine is also fundamental for prevention purposes”, he adds.

“We are on the right track. It is no small matter that 75% of pharmacies now offer tests and diagnostic tests; that approximately 65% have activated the CUP service and home delivery of medicines. And new services are still arriving, I am thinking of telemedicine and professional services hosted in the premises of pharmacies. In this way we bring healthcare closer to citizens, allowing us to lighten the load on hospital and local structures and helping to reduce waiting lists, with regards to healthcare needs that can also find an answer in pharmacies”. This is what the Minister of Health Orazio Schillaci said while speaking at the presentation.
