Download complimentary copy of latest CCM research that explores role of pharmacy technology for improving patient experience and outcomes at health systems
The expanding scope of pharmacy retailers and foray of technology companies into the health care space are influencing the strategy of health systems that own ambulatory pharmacies, according to Center for Connected Medicine (CCM) survey research.
More than half of health system pharmacy leaders believe retailers and technology companies are having either a moderate or strong influence on their hospital’s pharmacy strategy, the survey revealed.
To counter these competitors, health systems that own ambulatory pharmacies are investing in new technologies for their pharmacies, which can serve as a vital interface to promote patient engagement, enhance a consumer-friendly experience, and improve outcomes for patients.
The report, “Ambulatory Pharmacies at Health Systems: Technologies and Strategies to Boost Consumer Engagement,” can be downloaded from the link above. The report focuses on ambulatory pharmacies, which are any hospital- or health system-owned retail or walk-in-style patient pharmacy; it does not include inpatient pharmacy services.
