Pharmacy Check-up

Activities & Barriers to Care Analysis

Between August 27 and September 7, 2018, AmerisourceBergen conducted its inaugural Pharmacy Check-Up: Activity & Barriers to Care Analysis, a survey hosted by global research company Maru/Matchbox to explore and quantify pharmacists’ current perceptions on the state of the industry. More than 250 pharmacists working in chain, health system, independent and specialty settings were asked to identify their biggest opportunities, challenges and barriers to providing high-quality patient care. The results showed that while pharmacists look forward to an expanded role in healthcare including more patient-focused activities, obstacles such as reimbursement, contracting, medication availability and staff bandwidth can sometimes prevent them from making that a reality.
