Suffering from a case of "white coat syndrome" when dealing with prescribers? Sometimes it's easy to get bogged down in our pharmacy silos, but prescribers are facing some of the same workflow and payment challenges community pharmacies face today. Understanding a prescriber's pain points and how community pharmacy can help address them opens up new doors to grow your non-dispensing revenue. In this session, we will demystify the illusion behind collaborative opportunities and show real-life examples of how one community pharmacy has built a business on a strong partnership with primary care to serve its community.

Pharmacist and Pharmacy Technician Learning Objectives:

  1. Discuss prescriber quality programs and how to have a conversation with prescribers that speaks to their pressure points.

  2. Describe workflow and billing in a prescriber's office.

  3. Quantify community pharmacy revenue opportunities in primary care and how to negotiate financial agreements.
