THE PHARMACY NETWORK

The Pharmacy Network gives your health care professionals access to your medication profile. When you fill a prescription at a connected pharmacy, the Pharmacy Network stores information about the medications you are taking. This makes it easier for pharmacists and other health care professionals to make better decisions about your care and helps prevent harmful drug interactions.
  • Benefits

    Giving your health professionals access to information about the medications you take will help avoid harmful drug interactions and support better decisions about medications, diagnoses and treatments. Allowing other points of care such as clinics, hospitals and your doctor's office to view your medication profile will provide key information about your health to the people who need it - your health professionals - when and where they need it. This will make planning your treatment easier, quicker, and safer.

  • Progress

    We are making progress in connecting pharmacies in both the community and the health care setting to the Pharmacy Network. To see if your pharmacy is connected, check the map below.
