A collection of engaging infographics from healthcare influencers that reveals trends in pharmacists' role in healthcare:

The role of the pharmacist is shifting as their relationship with the patient grows stronger. One-third of Americans take 5 or more medications, with medicare beneficiaries making up the great majority of scripts. From Parata.



Modern healthcare offers the industry with new channels for fulfilling patient treatment plans. A recent JD Power Study found that mail order pharmacy costs are declining at significant pace, across generic, formulary and non-formulary drugs.



A look into the drivers of deeper engagement from pharmacists shows some interesting numbers. Chronic disease treatment complexity is one of those drivers. At the time of George Van Antwerp's review, chronic diseases affected less than half of the population while over 90% of prescriptions filled were for chronic diseases.



Patients visit their pharmacist 5 times more than any other healthcare providers. With pharmacists helping to improve overall outcomes and patient health, it is more important than ever to engage pharmacists regarding pharmaceutical treatments. From ATEB.
