Track 13: Internet Pharmacy

Since about the year 2000, a large number of Internet Pharmacies have been established worldwide. Many of these pharmacies are alike to community pharmacies, and in fact, many of them are actually operated by brick-and-mortar community pharmacies that help consumers online and those that walk in their door. The primary difference is the method by which the medications are requested and received. Some consumers consider this to be more convenient and private method rather than traveling to a community drugstore where another customer might overhear about the drugs that they take. Internet pharmacies are recommended to some patients by their physicians if they are home bound. Australian Pharmacy Council (APC), Professionals Australia, Professional Pharmacists Australia (PPA)

Importance & Scope:

Pharmacists are often the first port of call for people to get advice on health in general, as well as specific clinical conditions. Pharmacists have long been providing health services in every region of Australia, and while they remain mostly outside the glare of the limelight, the profession remains one of the most respected in the community. With the development of specific and potent synthetic drugs, the emphasis of the pharmacist’s responsibility has moved substantially towards the utilization of scientific knowledge in the proper use of modern medicines and the protection of the public against dangers that are inherent in their use. Pharmacists are employed in regulatory control and drug management, community pharmacy, hospital pharmacy, the pharmaceutical industry, academic activities, training of other health workers, and research. In all these fields, their aim is to ensure optimum drug therapy, both by contributing to the preparation, supply and control of medicines and associated products, and by providing information and advice to those who prescribe or use pharmaceutical products.

The market environment in which Pharmaceutical and Life Sciences companies operate is increasingly challenging, being driven by a more and more demanding healthcare agenda leading to a new marketing and sales system The global need for innovative, cost effective medicines continues to rise whilst regulators, payers, health care providers and patients are demanding greater value for money, proven effectiveness of products, more transparency and access to information.

About Venue:

Chicago is the largest city in Illinois and the seat of Cook County. It stretches for 22 mi along the southwest shore of Lake Michigan in the northeast part of the state.

 

The first white men known to have visited the region were Louis Joliet and Jacques Marquette in 1673. The first permanent white settler was John Kinzie, who is sometimes called the Father of Chicago. He took over a trading post in 1796 that had been established in 1791 by Jean-Baptiste Point du Sable, a black fur trapper. Fort Dearborn, a blockhouse and stockade, was built in 1804 but was evacuated in 1812, at which time more than half of its garrison was massacred by Potawatomi and Ottawa Indians loyal to the British.

The name Chicago is thought to come from an Algonquian word meaning “onion” or “skunk.”

Laid out in 1830, Chicago was incorporated as a village in 1833 and as a city in 1837. In the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, an area of the city about 4 mi long and nearly a mile wide—more than two thousand acres—was totally destroyed. However, much of the city, including the railroads and stockyards, survived intact, and from the ashes of the old wooden structures there arose more modern constructions in steel and stone.

Today, Chicago is a major Great Lakes port and the commercial, financial, industrial, and cultural center of the Midwest. The manufacturing industries dominate the wholesale and retail trade, and trade in agricultural commodities is important to the economy. The Chicago Board of Trade is the largest agricultural futures market in the world.

Among Chicago's many attractions are the Art Institute of Chicago, the Field Museum of Natural History, the Jane Addams–Hull House Museum, Navy Pier, and numerous architectural landmarks such as the Sears Tower and Frank Lloyd Wright's Robie House.

Pharmacists represent the third largest health professional group in the U.S. Although some pharmacists work in non-patient care settings (e.g., teaching, research, and administration), most work in a variety of patient care settings (Figure 1).

In 2011, there were 272,320 working pharmacists and an estimated 343,550 pharmacy technicians in the U.S. workforce. This corresponds to a national average of 87 pharmacists and 108 pharmacy technicians per 100,000 populations. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the total number of pharmacists in the U.S. is expected to increase by 69,700 (25%) between 2010 and 2020 and by 95,680 (35%) by 2030. National trends suggest that the supply of pharmacists is growing faster than previously projected; primarily as a result of the recent rapid growth of new pharmacy education programs and expansion of enrolment at existing schools across the country. In California, pharmacy workforce shortages are also decreasing and beginning to fall in balance with the state’s supply of pharmacists. In 2011, 22,960 pharmacists and 28,670 pharmacy technicians and aides served approximately 38 million Californians. This ratio of 63 pharmacists and 79 pharmacy technicians per 100,000 populations indicates that California still lags the nation despite the growing supply of pharmacy professionals throughout the state.

As the "baby boomer" population continued to age and the role of the pharmacist on the health care team grew, Universities responded by fervently adding new programs and expanding class sizes, often through distance-learning programs. The number of graduates has almost doubled since 2002, to approximately 13,000 today. Furthermore, an additional 17 pharmacy schools have been established over the past 4 years, meaning they have not yet had a graduating class. States like California, Texas, New York, Ohio, Illinois, North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, and Pennsylvania have all seen significant increases in pharmacy graduates in recent years, but perhaps the best example is Tennessee. The state has gone from having 1 pharmacy school in 2006, located at the University of Tennessee at Memphis, to 6 today, with Lipscomb, Belmont, and Union University all graduating their first classes in spring 2012.Unfortunately, as a direct result of the recession, those that had jobs were reluctant to give them up. The role of the pharmacist has continued to grow into caring for an aging population, but so have other health care professionals, such as nurse practitioners and physicians assistants. Subsequently, pay has remained stagnant (and, in many cases, lowered), the signing bonus is now the exception to the rule, and pharmacists must be willing to commute greater distances, often having to accept “floater" positions. Recruitment events still exist, but opportunities are fewer and spread between many more graduates; the supply has grown greater than the demand. The profession, Zavadski rightly says, is now “on the verge of a crisis.”

In a 2010 article, Daniel Brown, PharmD, dean of the Gregory School of Pharmacy at Palm Beach Atlantic University, recognized a shift from shortage to surplus: “Long-held assumptions about the rate of pharmacist job growth are beginning to crumble amid the uncertain health care and economic realities of our times, and yet, we, as an academy, continue to perpetrate a rate of unprecedented growth that has reached alarming proportions and shows no signs of abating.”In her justification of a "pharmacy school bubble," Zavadski quotes Dr. Brown’s bold prediction of 20% unemployment of pharmacy grads by 2018, though without sharing the data behind it. And here is where my path diverges from Zavadski’s.

PHARMACIST MARKET TREND

           There are 275,000 pharmacists in the U.S. Pharmacists come in many different varieties, but the three most prevalent and important are retail, hospital, and specialty pharmacists.

Retail Pharmacists

Retail pharmacists make up 63% of all pharmacists in the U.S. and work at a variety of locations, ranging from dedicated franchises such as CVS Caremark and Walgreens to mass merchandisers such as Wal-Mart and Kroger to smaller community pharmacies. These retail pharmacists provide basic services such as medication dispensing, but they are expanding their core role and focusing more on patient care initiatives—especially those retail pharmacists who work at major retail chains. For example, Walgreens has developed several partnerships to expand its pharmacists’ role in patient care. The first is with the design firm IDEO to redesign the pharmacy environment to encourage patients to engage with pharmacists outside of the simple medication-dispensing interaction; the second is with Greenway Medical Technologies to provide personal electronic health records to customers for tracking medication history and basic care; and the third is with provider practices to form ACOs.

Hospital Pharmacists

Hospital Pharmacists sometimes referred to as health system pharmacists are the second-most-prevalent pharmacist segment, comprising 26% of all pharmacists in the nation. Hospital pharmacists work in hospitals/clinics of varying sizes and types and can be found in outpatient and inpatient facilities. These pharmacies typically dispense drugs only to patients in the hospital/clinic. Hospital pharmacists often provide care for patients with more-complex conditions that require careful coordination with all members of the care team. These pharmacists accompany physicians on grand rounds to ensure proper medication administration and are direct points of contact for patients and caregivers.

Specialty Pharmacists

They play an increasingly important role in an industry that will soon be shifting more focus to specialty therapeutics. Specialty drugs are defined as treatments that cost more than $600 per month (as defined by CMS, Medicare Part D) and that have a certain level of associated complexity (e.g., special handling, rare diseases, close monitoring required, office-administered injection/infusion). Specialty pharmacists often provide clinical programs and support services such as disease-specific management programs and high-touch care models to complement the traditional roles of preparing and dispensing medication. Some specialty pharmacists are employed by major retail pharmacies such as CVS or Walgreens, although smaller, independent pharmacists represent a large portion of the specialty market. The industry is highly fragmented as each pharmacy tries to prove its value proposition to its payer, patient, drug manufacturer, and hospital stakeholder. Speciality pharmacies are becoming the key network node between these various stakeholders and will help usher in a new model of patient care in the coming years.
