Modern Healthcare

Retail pharmacy giant Walgreens said it will deliver prescriptions to hospitalized patients and manage their medications for the first 30 days after they leave the hospital under new contracts with a dozen hospitals and health systems.

Walgreens and hospitals will target patients with complex, chronic disease under the contracts, which began with an initial pilot in January, said Joel Wright, vice president of health systems operations at Walgreens.
