Pharmacists Should Be Allowed to Prescribe COVID Therapeutics On Tuesday, March 1, 2022, President Biden delivered his State of the Union address. During his speech, he laid out plans to launch a pharmacy-centered "Test to Treat" initiative. As the nation prepares to enter a new phase of the now two-year-long COVID-19 pandemic, this message couldn't come at a more critical time. Convenient access to community pharmacy-driven testing and treatment is necessary to combat the ongoing battle with COVID-19. And since 9 out of 10 people in the US live within five miles of a pharmacy, many will be able to get the care they desperately need because of the Administration's new plan — even those in rural and traditionally medically underserved areas. But there's a problem with Biden's announcement. The FDA recently prohibited pharmacists from being able to administer the life-saving antiviral medications that represent the "treat" portion of the…

CDC Weighing New Opioid Guidance Updated Clinical Practice Guideline for Prescribing Opioids is Available for Public Comment. The updated, proposed, 229-page guidance document reiterates that “opioids should not be considered first-line or routine therapy for subacute or chronic pain”. It also provides guidance and recommendations for alternative therapies and non-drug interventions for pain. What's not in the updated guidance is significant. There is no language that states prescribers should “avoid increasing dosage” to 90 morphine milligram equivalents or more per day or, to “carefully justify” a higher dose. Additionally, the updated guidelines have removed any time limits for opioid prescriptions for acute pain. The 2016 version stated “three days or less will often be sufficient; more than seven days will rarely be needed.” States, payers and pharmacies adopted the 2016 guidelines as "limits". Opioid prescription prescribing has been falling since 2012. Additional declines increased after the CDC's publication of the…

By Danny Sanchez, Senior Vice President and General Manager, EnlivenHealth™ On National Pharmacist Day, we want to recognize the increasingly important role that pharmacists play in their communities as their role expands beyond the traditional tasks of dispensing medications to being true healthcare providers who help keep patients healthy.  We all know that pharmacists are the most accessible, and among the most trusted, healthcare professionals. That is good news for the critical goal of improving patient health and wellbeing, which is the mission that we’re all working towards.  However, with the pharmacists’ expanding role there are challenges as well.  With the continuation of the COVID-19 pandemic, fueled by new variants, pharmacies are experiencing high patient demand and operational challenges.  Even pre-COVID, pharmacies were hard-pressed to keep up with the time-consuming work-flow and administrative challenges, like dispensing medications and adjudicating insurance claims. At EnlivenHealth™ we understand.  That’s why we work hard…
