Objectives
  • Pharmacist-prescriber collaboration leads to better patient care and improved patient outcomes. In a pilot study conducted at one community pharmacy in rural Western Pennsylvania, we found that prescription dispensing data organized in an infographic report is effective as a means to initiate collaborative working relationships with prescribers. Our goal is to build upon this pilot work by designing a generalizable, scalable approach for community pharmacists to use their own prescription dispensing information to initiate pharmacist-prescriber collaborations. Our aims are to: (1) evaluate pharmacists perspectives on how prescription dispensing data infographics can help pharmacists engage prescribers in discussions about collaboration; (2) collect prescriber opinions on using prescription dispensing data infographics to facilitate collaborations with pharmacists; and (3) design a toolkit to assist pharmacists with prescriber collaboration. The resulting systematic approach which utilizes dispensing level data available at any community pharmacy in the United States, along with accompanying training and feedback, will enable community pharmacists nationwide to successfully collaborate with prescribers in their region.
