NCPA Releases 2019 Digest

October 30, 2019

The National Community Pharmacists Association (NCPA) has released the 2019 Digest, an annual benchmarking survey of independent pharmacies sponsored by Cardinal Health.

“Independent community pharmacists have long been lauded for the services patients can access and the quality care they can receive at these locally-owned pharmacies,” said NCPA CEO B. Douglas Hoey, pharmacist, MBA. “As economic pressures on pharmacies continue – and as more medical-side payers find value in community-based pharmacies – it’s increasingly important to change the pharmacy payment model to compensate for value and recognize pharmacists for the services they do and can provide. This year’s Digest, in addition to serving as a barometer for independent community pharmacy owners, establishes the steadily growing local networks of CPESN® USA as pharmacy’s best bet to transform into a system allowing pharmacists to be recognized for practicing at their full scope.”
