The Push Partner Registry partnership with community-based organizations and local county public health departments with the goal of dispensing medications to at-risk populations during an emergency. The registry is a database of private partners and community organizations that serve as a private Point of Dispensing (POD) for medicines needed in a large-scale health emergency.
Push Partners pick up and distribute medications to their clients, employees and their employees’ families. By dispensing medications, Push Partners will help ensure continuity of their business while helping those who are unable to travel to POD sites. Push Partners also promote a faster response by relieving congestion at PODs open to the general public.
