Pharmacy’s Role in Digital Transformation and Culturally Competent Care
Modern pharmacists spend nearly a decade in school training for clinical practice. Yet many find that their careers are filled with cumbersome manual and administrative tasks that prevent them from practicing at the top of their license.
Machine learning, artificial intelligence, and new digital technology solutions are helping to solve this challenge, automating manual processes to allow pharmacists to spend more time delivering culturally competent care to patients.
Join us for this session with Wellforce Chief Digital Officer and System CIO Dr. Shafiq Rab, MD, MBBS, MPH, CHCIO, FCHIME. Dr. Rab shares insights on:
- How digital transformation can reduce pharmacy errors and allow pharmacists to work at the top of their license
- Why pharmacists are the best-suited member of the care team to provide culturally competent care
- How to use technology to surface actionable insights that better connect teams in complex and disparate environments
