With the COVID-19 vaccine rollout ramping up right as immunization season would normally be ending, the concept of an immunization season is a thing of the past. Delivering a great immunization experience for patients will position your pharmacy a preferred designation for preventative and primary care, even after the pandemic. So how can you make your immunization experience awesome?
The pharmacy landscape is rapidly changing to include service-based approaches that are proving to be a major factor in healthcare reform. Pharmacists face a unique opportunity to embrace the role of a ‘primary-care pharmacist’ while maintaining their role as the purveyors of medicine.
We begin a pilot program in Augusta, GA with a local pharmacy and a local food bank with goal of making a positive impact on food insecurity in the region. Through this collaboration, the program addressed both physiological and safety needs. By alleviating food insecurities for patients, we can help to improve their overall health and prevent patients from having to choose between buying their food or buying their medication.
