The award, presented annually by the editors and publishers of DSN, honors a retail pharmacy company, pharmacy executive or pharmacy team for contributions that have helped to advance the practice of pharmacy, expand the role of the community pharmacist and/or to help improve patient care and drive better health outcomes.
“By that measure, there are few companies that have done more to advance the pharmacy profession than Thrifty White,” Eder explained. “The work it has done to pioneer medication synchronization is a perfect example; the appointment-based model is enabling Thrifty White’s pharmacists to practice at the top of their license, optimizing pharmacist-patient engagement and improving medication adherence.”
