Mapping Pharmacies during Disaster Webinar, May 22

Healthcare Ready is hosting the webinar “Rx Open: Mapping Pharmacies During Disasters” on Wednesday, May 22nd, 2017, at 2:00 p.m. Eastern. Those interested can join using the meeting number: 598 127 725.


Rx Open helps patients and medical staff find nearby open pharmacies in areas impacted by disaster. Using data feeds from several sources in the pharmaceutical industry, people can search Google Maps to see the locations of pharmacies and know which are open, closed, and which are status unknown. This information is also critical for government agencies trying to determine a disaster’s impact on infrastructure and public health. As of this writing, Rx Open is not activated, but you may view the map on the website to see what local pharmacies are participating. Participation in Rx Open is free.
