WV central fill pharmacy begins dispensing drugs in Feb

By Suzanne Higgins 

West Virginia Rx is scheduled to be up and running over the next few weeks.

It will also be an online clearinghouse of information for both providers and patients. Partners say it will mean better health in West Virginia, and a savings of hundreds of millions of dollars a year.
