Community pharmacies welcome professional services report

Health Industry Hub | November 25, 2019 |

More than 1,000 community pharmacies now have received professional services income potential reports as part of the Pharmacy Guild of Australia’s Health Advice Plus program.

The program is a support service for member pharmacies who want to get started or need additional support to integrate and deliver successful health programs and services, Pharmacy Guild Group Executive Member Services and Innovation, Colm Maguire, said.

“The first step in the process is to access the Opportunity Analysis tool – provided free of charge for Guild members – which analyses the income potential from services for individual pharmacies,” he said.

“The online Opportunity Analysis tool provides a report that includes an estimate of untapped opportunity potential and establishes a performance
benchmarking mechanism to ensure this opportunity is secured as the pharmacy moves to a professional services model.”

The Opportunity Analysis report covers: 6CPA funded programs, fixed third party income, prescription and medication programs, as well as screening and testing services and is supported by an individual review session with a trained pharmacy coach, the Guild said.

The Health Advice Plus and Opportunity Analysis Program has been developed as a partnership between the Pharmacy Guild of Australia and instigo.
