How one innovative community pharmacist harnessed the power of scalable pharmacogenomics to improve patient outcomes.
Dr. Abubakar realized that many doctors simply didn’t know how to act on the results of PGx tests. While she didn’t have all the answers, Dr. Abubakar knew two things. First, PGx testing would play an important role in the future of health care. Second, pharmacists were perfectly poised to help physicians implement this emerging technology.
Pharmacists have the most training when it comes to medication dynamics and kinetics—more than most doctors. Additionally, there’s a pharmacy within a five-mile radius of every American, giving pharmacists unparalleled access to patients. Properly trained pharmacists represent an untapped resource for PGx testing implementation.
