Iowa Telepharmacy Opens Shop In Illinois

Sep 24, 2015

An Iowa-based telepharmacy company is opening a location in the northern Illinois village of Mount Morris and is in talks with other communities. The privately owned TelePharm has an off-site pharmacist inspect and verify prescriptions, which on-site technicians dispense. Customers order in person or online and then pick up prescriptions. Customers also can speak with the off-site pharmacists. TelePharm representative Greg Janes says the company is talking with officials in Ashton in Lee county and Erie in Whiteside County. Janes says the company also has commitments from Sheffield in Bureau County, Cambridge in Henry County and Waterman in DeKalb County. The Mount Morris location will be downtown and officials say they hope it will open in six to nine months.
