I commend to your reading an article, “The role of retail pharmacy in the new healthcare environment,” which was referred to me by Becky Snead at the National Alliance of State Pharmacy Associations. It is a positive article, very supportive of maximizing the role that pharmacists can play in our ever-evolving health care system—and it’s written by a physician.
It is the first in a series of articles that will appear in the American Journal of Pharmacy Benefits. It’s a short, easy read. I encourage you to take a few minutes to review it. Maybe you’ll be inspired to take the author up on her closing challenge: “I would love to hear from you regarding the use of pharmacists and retail pharmacies taking on a greater role as part of the healthcare team.”
