Rexall Pharma Plus is supporting the Ontario government’s announcement that it will expand the role of pharmacists to provide more options for healthcare needs in the province. Pharmacists will now be able to offer services such as renewals and adaptations of existing prescriptions; prescribing medication to help people quit smoking; chronic disease monitoring, and the administration of flu shots. Rexall Pharma Plus has over 700 pharmacists across Ontario.

Gallup and Healthways have formed a new global joint venture to focus on the measurement, analysis, and reporting of individual and organizational well-being. The effort builds on the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index, an initiative begun five years ago to create a definitive database of changes in the well-being of the U.S. population. The new venture will develop the next generation of assessment tools to provide employers, health providers, and insurers with validated tools to report on well-being.

Integrated Healthcare Strategies has published a new book, Healthcare Leadership Excellence: Creating a Career of Impact. The book, written by James Rice, an executive vice president with the firm, and Frankie Perry, a healthcare consultant, outlines how to plan a healthcare career of purpose, with strategies to develop self-awareness and mentoring skills of the type displayed by industry executives who are making a difference.
