|The Outlook for 2013||| Print ||
This year’s edition of our annual survey outlines the vendors’ perspective on the road ahead for pharmacy technology. We found out what product and service areas are seeing new development and enhancements, where efficiency and revenue gains will come from in both the pharmacy and the front end, the market and regulatory forces driving development, initiatives around adherence, and what’s happening with mobile technology. In all, 2013 should turn out to be another busy year for vendors, as well as for pharmacists looking to keep current with the latest technology.
