Benzer Pharmacy is working to update the traditional model of a community pharmacy. By tackling pharmaceutical care from multiple angles, weaknesses of the traditional pharmaceutical model are addressed and turned into strengths. Benzer brings patients to the pharmacy, while also bringing the pharmacy to the patients.
The pharmacy’s role does not have to be limited to illness management; it can also play a role in prevention. In partnership with HabitNu, Benzer Pharmacy is working to bring diabetes prevention to a broader audience. The increasing number of patients diagnosed with prediabetes and Type 2 diabetes provides an expanding base of potential customers. HabitNu uses an innovative mobile application to help patients track their progress and goals. Building care goals, such as weight loss and exercise, into a simple and convenient mobile app increases the likelihood that patients will keep up with treatment programs.
