Got high blood pressure? It pays to have a #pharmacist on your health team. #communitypharmacymatters
Patients with hypertension benefit from interacting with a medical team that includes a pharmacist. Two studies showed pharmacist-included care teams delivered more hands-on and tailored medication regimens to patients, which yielded more effective blood-pressure control results than for those patients who did not have a pharmacist on hand.

Soo's Drug and Compounding Center owners Krystal Soo, PharmD (left) and Brandon Cooper, PharmD (right) welcomed Rep. Rick Crawford to their Jonesboro, Ark. #communitypharmacy recently to thank him for his support of any willing pharmacy legislation (HR 793) that will protect #pharmacychoice for seniors and MAC transparency legislation (HR 244). Set up a pharmacy visit with your member of Congress today & send us a pic!
PS - FUN FACT: Rep. Crawford's brother is a community pharmacist in Missouri!

Thanks to U.S. Rep. Gary Palmer for visiting Snider's Discount Pharmacy in AL recently, where he learned firsthand about the issues facing #communitypharmacy from owner Doug Snider and APCI.  We encourage Rep. Palmer to cosponsor two very important bills and support #pharmacychoice for patients, H.R. 793 (any willing pharmacy) and HR 244, MAC transparency.

This should be required reading for everyone on your pharmacy staff. Take some time to go through this list and ensure you’ve got these safety measures in place at your #communitypharmacy. Stay safe!
Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) data indicate pharmacy robberies are on the rise.

The DEA announced a new Prescription Drug Take-Back Day for Sept. 26. Let us know if you plan to partner with a law enforcement agency in your area to promote safe medication disposal – we’d love to see your pics!

A new J.D. Power study once again confirms ‪#‎communitypharmacy‬ ranks high in customer satisfaction. Kudos to locally owned and operated pharmacies +Good Neighbor Pharmacy, Health Mart Pharmacy, and Medicine Shoppe for besting the competition in their market category. We have always known that community pharmacy is tops!
WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif.: 24 August 2015 — Despite all of the changes in the healthcare industry, customer satisfaction with pharmacies has remained relatively stable, according to the J.D. Power 2015 U.S. Pharmacy StudySM released today.

Fabulous Friday read: AFYA Pharmacy in Minn. fills a critical #healthcare need for Somali immigrants in its community. Just another example of community pharmacy stepping in to help patients in areas where it’s needed most. Share your stories with us! #communitypharmacymatters
Ismael Khalif started AFYA Pharmacy to help bridge the gap between doctors and Somalis

The key to staying in business for 140 years? “You expand as long as you're moving forward.” Happy anniversary to Oswald’s Pharmacy – and thanks for serving as a model for innovation and growth through the development of niches.
Oswald's Pharmacy in Naperville is marking its 140th anniversary with major renovations and a look back at its history in the city.

We asked & you delivered. NCPA has compiled examples of egregious below-cost reimbursements from PBMs made recently to community pharmacies and the numbers are astounding. We are taking these examples to Capitol Hill as further evidence for the need for Congress to enact federal MAC reforms with HR 244.

Community pharmacists are true lifesavers! Kudos to pharmacist Phil Darrah of Banks Pharmacy in Oregon for his quick thinking and lifesaving skills. ‪#‎communitypharmacymatters‬
When Bill Hundley died of a heart attack outside the Banks Pharmacy, pharmacist Phil Darrah was quick to revive him. As a small town pharmacist focused on community, Darrah says it's all just part of his job taking care of his customers.
