"EPharmacy" available to remote locations in Kansas City-based St. Luke's Health System

Kansas City Star, February 4, 2009

A new ePharmacy serving Kansas City-based St. Luke's Health System's growing Lee's Summit campus and several other area facilities is intended to boost patient safety and save money. The virtual pharmacy makes a pharmacist available at nights and on weekends to some of St. Luke's most remote locations. Two pharmacists staff the ePharmacy, which is at the Summit Technology Center in Lee's Summit. They serve St. Luke's East-Lee's Summit; St. Luke's Northland in Kansas City, North, and Smithville; Crittenton Children's Center in Kansas City; Hedrick Medical Center in Chillicothe; and Wright Memorial Hospital in Trenton, MO.
