Presentation by Mark Prifogle, CEO, GrandView Pharmacy

As we grow older, we are more likely to develop long-term health conditions that require taking multiple medications. Many also take over-the-counter (OTC) medications, vitamins, or supplements. As a result, older adults have a higher risk of overmedication and unwanted drug reactions (adverse drug reactions).

GrandView CEO, Mark Prifogle, gave a presentation at the 2018 OHCA Therapy Conference about how the therapy plays an important role to help identify, communicate and reduce these adverse drug reactions, medication errors and significant side effects.
