Retail medicine spreads through Walgreens

The practice of medicine outside traditional healthcare settings is expanding through retail settings such as Walgreens.

Walgreen Co. announced that it is expanding services at its 360 Take Care Clinics to include diagnostic and treatment services for common chronic conditions such as diabetes, hypertension and high cholesterol.

Earlier, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services approved Walgreens as the first pharmacy chain to be part of an accountable care organization.

Walgreens is partnering with physicians and hospitals to form ACOs in Florida, New Jersey and Texas.
