Redefining the Role of Pharmacy Technicians Post COVID-19

July 23, 2021

COVID-19 has propelled many changes. Most notably the significance and role of community pharmacies. They have shifted from being product-based to now being front and center as service-based and patient centered. To say that pharmacies are overwhelmed with all of the recent changes is an understatement, but they continue to lead the way seemingly unfettered. In response, the US Department of Health and Human Services has passed several regulations, including one allowing qualified technicians to receive training to become certified to immunize patients under the supervision of a pharmacist. As an integral part of the healthcare system, trained pharmacy techs will now be able to help fill the urgent need to safely and quickly scale distribution of a vaccine in communities all across this country.

Workforce Management Strategies Helping Pharmacies Vaccinate on a Massive Scale

July 21, 2021

We’ve recently witnessed a faster progression in how healthcare is being delivered and who delivers it. Pharmacists and retail pharmacies are leading the way by delivering vital health care services in various settings throughout the pandemic. They play a key role in the administration of COVID-19 vaccines, offering vaccinations to prevent other diseases, as well as developing strong relationships with their local communities in an effort to leverage their community reach.  One example of the pharmacist’s expanding role has been the partnership with public health efforts in underserved areas. Since they’re already experienced in administering vaccines, pharmacists have been able to cover large areas that require more providers, especially in rural areas, by expanding the number of locations and the hours that immunizations are available.

The decision to implement new scheduling software is an exciting but overwhelming time.

Modernize Your Remote Workforce Management Strategies

May 4, 2021

Managing a remote workforce is the new normal. The reality that COVID-19 is changing the way we work can no longer be disputed.  We may have thought it would be temporary amid COVID-19, but what many administrators are realizing is it doesn't really make sense to go back to the workplace strategies we practiced before the pandemic hit. If you'd have asked 100 companies before COVID-19 if they would support their workforce working remotely, very few would’ve jumped onboard. However, given the abrupt and unexpected opportunity to learn just how effective a virtual workforce can be, many are choosing to remain remote and are encouraging their workforce to settle into this new normal.
