A few headlines of interest. Make sure to read the Venture Beat article on the FDA taking a hands-off approach to digitial health. That may have an effect on the concierge physicians and medical spas that are beginning to use more sophisticated methods to deliver care at distance.

I know that you do not want comments from anyone outside of your area; however, so many of your posts are very similar to a situation a number of years ago in the U.S. dealing with the cigarette manufacturers. The company that I worked for bought directly from all the majors: R J. Reynold's, Lorrilard, etc. They sold tremendous amounts of cigarettes through vending machines, as did many other like companies.
WELL, A LOOPHOLE WAS DISCOVERED which enabled these US companies to buy these SAME cigarettes for MUCH lower prices, because these cigarettes were initially sold for much lower prices than US companies were charged. These cigarettes was made for European consumption & sent to Europe; however, any cases that did not sell were returned to the US for credit. I can not give you all of the exact details, but the Rep's from all of the cigarette manufacturers did come to our office all the time & tell us that what our company was doing was illegal. They tried everything they could think of to make us stop buying these cigarettes; basically, what the Rep's are doing to you!
The US vending companies that were buying these "diverted goods" were not intimidated; and, they still had to purchase additional product direct from the US cigarette manufacturers because there were not enough "diverted goods" for their entire needs. This practice did continue for a few years until the "loophole" in the law was changed.
Knowing the pharmaceutical companies (my husband is retired from one, his company does not make any of your products)
they will probably attempt to have a law put in place that will serve their purpose.
I am with you guys!!! Good luck!! Fortunately, I am in the travel industry & travel a lot, but would rather spend my $ in US!
Sorry I invaded your site, but thought this info. would interest you. DCB
