Attributable to Thomas M. Anderson, M.D., President of the Illinois State Medical Society

The physician members of the Illinois State Medical Society are dedicated to maintaining the safety of our patients in all contexts, including prescription drug safety.  We support the Administration's efforts to increase the communication and counseling that occur when prescription drugs are dispensed at pharmacies.  We also applaud efforts to convene a task force to examine best practices involving prescription drug management in order to ensure the proper care of patients in Illinois. The Illinois State Medical Society looks forward to participating in that task force. We are confident that the medical community can work with the Administration and interested stakeholders in a collaborative manner to ensure the safest and most effective medication dispensing practices are employed in Illinois.

 

Founded in 1840, ISMS is a professional membership association representing Illinois physicians in all medical specialties, and their patients, statewide. Dr. Anderson is a Chicago radiologist.
