Retail Pharmacies at the Forefront of Primary Care Innovation

Share Article

The August/September issue of Inside Pharmacy™ is now available online.

This is an industry that examines and sets trends, provides better access to healthcare, and addresses patient needs.

With the emergence of CVS Health and its initiative to cease the sale of all tobacco products, retail chains are transforming the healthcare landscape to provide affordable, accessible products and services to patients, customers, and shoppers. In this capacity, Inside Pharmacy™ is a forum for all the stakeholders of retail pharmacy healthcare to share their knowledge on patient care, achieve professional success, and what you need to know to coordinate care with other colleagues inside the pharmacy.

This latest issue of Inside Pharmacy™ brings together key stakeholders of primary care as they share their knowledge and experience regarding patient care in the retail setting, resources for professional success, and how to best coordinate patient care. In focus, pharmacists discuss the optimal care of patients with mental health issues, including counseling patients and ensuring continuity of care. Kevin Letz, DNP, MBA, shares his perspective on the expanding role of nurse practitioners and its impact on immunotherapy, and Tine Hansen-Turton, Executive Director of the Convenient Care Association, discusses the current trends in healthcare delivery and the multistakeholder approach to care. “This is an industry that examines and sets trends, provides better access to healthcare, and addresses patient needs,” she told Inside Pharmacy™ in a recent interview. The latest issue of the journal is now available at http://www.InsidePharmacyOnline.com.

We are also pleased to announce the addition of several new editorial board members to the journal: Alexandra Jung, Principal, Advisory Services, Ernst & Young, LLP, and former Senior Vice President, Corporate Strategy, Walgreens; Jack Kelly, RPh, Chief Business Development Officer, Pharmacist Partners, CKO; and Kevin Letz, DNP, MBA, Chairman/Founder, Advanced Practice Provider Executives. With their extensive experience and knowledge in the retail community, they will provide invaluable insight into the retail clinic and business aspects of the journal.

Inside Pharmacy™ will attend the National Community Pharmacists Association Annual Convention in Austin, Texas, October 18-22. Visit our booth (#1055) to learn more about the journal!
