Telepharmacy and Quality of Medication Use in Rural Areas, 2013–2019

Pharmacy closures in rural areas is an increasingly common problem. Closures disrupt medication access and decrease adherence to prescription medications.

Our study sought to address this gap by comparing the quality of telepharmacies serving rural areas and traditional pharmacies that support them.
