Thought Leadership

On-Site
Pharmacy

Walgreens leverages its expertise in pharmacy operations to provide on-site pharmacy services that support health systems. We can help address business challenges ranging from medication adherence to hospital readmissions to cost containment.

Current Challenges

Although onsite pharmacies can help improve health system revenue and efficiency under a value-based payment model, the solution can be costly and complex.

Construction expenses, inventory, staff patient assistance and payer contracting must be considered to benefit from an onsite pharmacy. A partner and advocate can make the transition as smooth and beneficial as possible.
