The pandemic is serving as a catalyst for reexamining the role of pharmacists in delivering patient care. With nearly 9 in 10 Americans living within five miles of a pharmacy, patient accessibility and familiarity with their pharmacist makes clear that there is renewed opportunity for pharmacists to practice at the level they are trained to do.
Pharmacy fulfillment is a central strategy that pharmacies should be encouraged to embrace if they are expanding patient care services. That’s because pharmacists are spending too much time filling maintenance prescriptions, which account for 40 to 60% of prescription volume.
