The challenges facing the pharmacy profession are complex. For years pharmacists have struggled with incredibly challenging work environments made worse by broken payment mechanisms and systems that prevent you from utilizing your full expertise to care for patients. COVID-19 hasn’t made things any easier, but it has brought us closer to proving our undeniable value to patient care and that having pharmacists on the front lines saves lives.
Despite the challenges COVID-19 is bringing, pharmacists are stepping up for patients and demonstrating value to healthcare payers and other stakeholders. Since the onset of the pandemic, APhA has tirelessly advocated for improved patient access to care through pharmacists provided influenza and COVID-19 testing and immunizations.
