Northwestern Ohio’s The Courier is reporting that CVS Health president and CEO Larry Merlo delivered a speech at Ohio Northern University titled “Driving More Affordable, Accessible and Effective Care,” in which he noted the ways pharmacy can help drive down healthcare costs. He said that retail pharmacy will play a key role in combatting such issues as medication non-adherence and stepping into primary care. “Retail pharmacy is oftentimes the front door to health care,” he reportedly said. “It provides more opportunities to interact with patients than any other site of care.” (The Courier)
