Whether it’s to get a flu shot or a prescription, making a late-night run for milk, or mailing a package, there are infinite ways the pharmacy proves to be at the heart of the community. While trends often affect what pharmacies offer customers and patients, their mission to give the public access to health services, consultations, and products remains the same. For pharma marketers, it is an unprecedented opportunity to reach potential patients in a location they frequent during their pursuit for improved health. This session will detail the four sectors that work concurrently within the retail pharmacy — the pharmacist, prescription drug services, consumer goods, and consumer services. You will learn about the unique opportunities the pharmacy provides to its communities for health improvement, education, and guidance. Lastly, Nate will teach you some of the methods pharma marketers can use to unleash the power of the pharmacy and reach their target patient audiences.

After many years of stasis, the pandemic forced providers to adopt consumer-friendly technologies such as telehealth and mobile check-in to deliver care safely. Having experienced the adoption of technologies and applications that are standard in other industries, patients have increased expectations of what their experience can be. Phreesia’s patient surveys demonstrate that many changes brought on by the pandemic will be offered to patients as a permanent alternative, including using technology to request and register for appointments, track their health, and connect with their provider virtually.
The pandemic accelerated a variety of trends in health care – and significantly affected the way patients access and experience care. ZS’ ongoing COVID Pulse study and telehealth research has been tracking the challenges and opportunities for the PoC communication channel due to COVID-19. Learn how patients, physicians, payers, and tech companies are navigating this new space and what these changes mean for pharma marketing.
