Community pharmacy

Pharmacies are leading the way on the adoption of digital health.

 

Pharmacists are one of the most trusted professions along with nurses and doctors, with 95% of patients saying they are satisfied with their community pharmacy. Given how many people visit pharmacies each year and the trust they have, the opportunity to leverage digital health cannot be underestimated.
