During this episode, you’ll learn how a pharmacist is combining his passions for community pharmacy with technology. David D. Pope, PharmD, CDE is currently the Chief of Innovation and Co- Founder of STRAND Clinical Technologies, a rapidly-growing suite of technology that bridges clinical pharmacy with the retail landscape. STRAND’s technology, including the STRAND Intervention platform, is used by clinical pharmacists across the country to combat chronic disease by providing intervention strategies and revolutionizing healthcare communication between providers. Additionally, the STRAND platform is the first technology in the country to produce the Pharmacist eCare Plan, an ONC-backed clinical document designed to bring clinical pharmacist resources more readily into the healthcare landscape. Dr. Pope also consults for a variety of healthcare organizations, including the US Center for Disease Control (CDC), on medical informatics, tobacco cessation strategies, chronic care management, and more. His company, STRAND, was recently commended by the White House for leading Zika response efforts through community pharmacists. Dr. Pope is also Chairman of the Board of the STRAND Foundation, a charitable arm aimed at improving health disparities across the globe. His business, STRAND, was recently named in the University of Georgia Top 100 most rapidly growing businesses in America that are graduate-owned.
Dr. Pope lives with his wife and five children in Evans, GA, where he enjoys serving his local church through music and medical missions, Ironman triathlons, and mixed martial arts.
