Check out the 2018 NCPA Digest, sponsored by Cardinal Health

The 2018 NCPA Digest, sponsored by Cardinal Health, the most trusted and comprehensive report on community pharmacy, debuted at the convention. The Digest features industry information on average pharmacy sales, expenses, number of prescriptions dispensed, workforce data, patient care services, technology trends, and much more.

 

If you didn’t get a chance to pick up a copy of this year’s Digest at the NCPA Pavilion during the convention, be sure to look for your copy with the November edition of America’s Pharmacist® (sent to NCPA owners/managers only). All NCPA members can also download a pdf of the Digest on the members-only section of NCPA’s website. Take a look and tell us what you think.
