Across the United States, independent pharmacies are closing. Between 2010 and 2012, 46 pharmacies closed in Iowa alone, leaving more than 220,000 patients in rural areas without a local pharmacy. These residents, many of them elderly, were forced to travel long distances or even move just to access basic pharmacy services.
TelePharm was founded in 2012 to bring convenient, world-class pharmacy services back to these rural communities. Through their innovative pharmacy solutions, they provide underserved patients access to a complete pharmacy. TelePharm’s software is critical to the success of this new model, allowing them to securely manage the prescription workflow and verification process.
TelePharm came to Aptible looking for a better way to manage their development and deployment process, while maintaining HIPAA compliance. With Aptible, the TelePharm team was able to get their apps and databases migrated and running in a few hours. With Aptible’s secure, PHI-ready deployment environments and DevOps tools, TelePharm has been able to achieve unparalleled agility, stability, and security.
