Recently, popular pharmacy publication DrugTopics published an article detailing upcoming pharmacy trends and predictions for the coming year. The article, titled “A Look Ahead: What to Expect from the Pharmacy Landscape in 2020,” features a quote from notable FDS client and CPESN Luminary Ben McNabb, PharmD.
McNabb focused on the expanding role of pharmacists in clinical care. He believes more pharmacies will enter into care management and community healthcare roles in 2020:
“These are exciting new opportunities because health plans typically spend far more on care management than prescription drugs, and industry leaders believe pharmacies can do it much more efficiently,” he said. “To provide these enhanced services, I encourage pharmacies to join an enhanced services network like CPESN and leverage a Pharmacist eCare Plan platform.”
McNabb also said he has used FDS software solutions to improve patient medication adherence and increase store revenue by nearly $500,000.
McNabb, who owns and operates Love Oak Pharmacy in Eastland, Texas, has been an FDS client since 2018. He currently uses RxCompass (powered by FDS myDataMart) for business intelligence, as well as FDS Engage for patient care management and med sync.
