As our nationís healthcare system undergoes significant change, retail pharmacies ó uniquely positioned for an increased role in primary patient care ó are examining clinical interoperability and collaboration options.

Pharmacies must look beyond electronic automation of traditional processes, like prescriptions and communication toward two-way, interactive connectivity, giving the pharmacy the capability to both view and populate the patientís community health record.

As most clinical systems are created for non-pharmacy providers, expertise in pharmacy workflow and revenue cycle will be crucial. Ultimately, the key to successful clinical collaboration will be choosing a partner who can help you mind your bottom line so your pharmacists can focus on the clinical aspects of your expanding practice.
