Improving access to healthcare through pharmacies across the world
You’ve just read our vision. It’s why we exist. It’s why we do what we do.
And our Mission?
Pharmacy Mentor is building better digital ecosystems for pharmacies to enable them to treat more people, offer a wider range of healthcare solutions and deliver them more conveniently.
We share a very similar vision to the PSNC in terms of the evolution of Community Pharmacy. Watch the video below.
The Future of Community Pharmacy as explained by the PSNC
The video is about the Future of Community Pharmacyand it highlights how important it is to embrace technological and digital solutions for your own sustainability. As automation and technology advances, we will be spending less time dispensing and more time delivering clinical services. Marketing your services effectively and building the correct digital ecosystems throughout your business model plays a huge role in making sure these services are used optimally.
HELPING TO IMPROVE THE PERCEPTION OF COMMUNITY PHARMACY
Traditionally, community pharmacy has been the supplier of medicines. The new NHS requires community pharmacy to play a greater role, to be bolder and to fully utilise the clinical skills of pharmacists. With the evolution of digital health, pharmacies are becoming ‘health hubs’ in the community and a place where holistic care is delivered.
IMPROVING ACCESS TO PATIENT CARE
Community pharmacies have been successfully delivering advanced services to patients including medicine reviews, blood pressure monitoring and flu jabs for a number of years. However, our skillset has increased considerably and together with the evolution of digital pharmacy, we’re able to provide a plethora of clinical services. By fully utilising digital marketing strategies and developing the right digital ecosystems, community pharmacy can greatly improve the scope of access to NHS and private pharmacy services.
GROWTH THROUGH EFFICIENCY SAVINGS AND STREAMLINING OF PROCESSES
Technology is allowing us to become more efficient, streamline processes, ultimately leading to loss reduction. We understand the community pharmacy business model and how technology can be applied. This helps to save time which is best placed, focussing on patient care and better patient outcomes. This is the basis of what digital pharmacy exists upon.
PROVIDING THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS
Digital health is now and the future but we understand that face-2-face care can never be replaced. We envisage that a Community Pharmacy will be infused with digital health so as to provide the Community with both forms of care coinciding. Technology is our ally and harnessing it will improve the lives of our patients.
WORKING IN COLLABORATION WITH PHARMACY AND TECH COMPANIES
We know how important is it for Community Pharmacy to embrace technology today. That’s why we work tirelessly with big pharma and tech to communicate better with the sector. The more we can bridge this gap, the more opportunity will exist for Community Pharmacy.
