How Pharmacy Will Change in 2019
“Our vision is that patients and clinicians should have connections and access to a pharmacist anytime, anywhere. It’s going to only enhance patient safety and their satisfaction with their medication program.” – Brian Roberts, CEO, PipelineRx
The pharmacy industry in the United States continued to evolve in 2018, fueled by ongoing and significant changes in healthcare. The shift from volume-based to value-based care and reimbursement, the rising cost of prescription drugs, a rapid spike in the incidence of chronic diseases, and national health spending that is projected to rise 5.3% this year are all driving healthcare organizations to address costs through economies of scale and efficiencies.
