Digital tools helping transform community pharmacy services

Although community pharmacy pioneered the introduction of IT systems in healthcare many years ago, it has traditionally focused on the management of products and inventories, and administrative matters. While digital health tools allow more convenient, efficient, personalised, accessible and better quality care, existing community pharmacy operations struggle to keep pace with this. What are the digital health opportunities and challenges that pharmacy face and what practical tools can be implemented to respond to this? In this talk, examples, practical use cases, opportunities and challenges of digital health as valuable business and clinical tools will be discussed.
