Create a family caregiver culture — engage and support these influential advisors
Family caregivers can be some of your best customers.
Currently, more than 1 in 5 Americans is a family caregiver. Family caregivers help a family member or friend manage a health condition or daily living. They regularly purchase medications and more for both family members and themselves.
Studies show that when family caregivers are part of the hospital care team, patient outcomes improve.
Create a family caregiver culture in your pharmacy business — in retail stores and online. Engage and educate this influential population about health management during a hospital stay and the importance of medication adherence after discharge.

Our approach to helping organizations better support family caregivers is accretive rather than disruptive. Many enhancements are inexpensive and easy to implement. Some help mitigate the impact of COVID-19 on family caregivers, patients, and staff.
Rather than introduce new workflows, products, or services, we help refine existing processes. Some changes are as simple as placing family caregiving content into existing patient and staff communication channels.
