An Essential Companion for Strategic Planning


To assist in strategic planning, the Pharmacy Forecast examines developments in key areas that may be opportunities or challenges for practice leaders in the next five years. This resource reports the results of a survey of trend watchers in pharmacy, analyzes potential developments and presents actionable strategic recommendations.

  • The expanded use of artificial intelligence (AI)
  • The COVID-19 pandemic’s impact on all levels of the pharmacy workforce and the supply chain
  • Impacting Access, Disparities and Equity
  • Medication management for patients with substance use disorders
  • Combating stress in the health-system pharmacy workforce
  • Addressing COVID-19 vaccine misinformation
  • Cybersecurity and pharmacy security
