It is a reality that you will be putting your health in the hands of a pharmacy. Having an effective and safe prescription is the only way to ensure you get the best possible care. Unfortunately, not all pharmacies are created equal. The quality, design, and technology of a pharmacy, along with the training and experience of a pharmacy technician are critical factors that make or break a pharmacy.
In our own experience, pharmacies are expensive to run, and they are often not up to snuff for the quality of care they provide. We’ve seen pharmacies that have been unable to provide what they promised, and in some cases, just plain fail to meet their customers’ expectations.
Thats what we mean when we say you need to be educated and trained in pharmacy tech. To be a good pharmacy tech, you must be knowledgeable about the technology used, the tools, and how to use them. If you don’t do this correctly, you are more likely to fail, and worse, to be hurt. These tools and technology are critical because they determine the quality of care that a pharmacy technician provides.
For the uninitiated, a pharmacy tech is in charge of a pharmacy’s pharmacy tech program, which is essentially a network of health care providers that work together to provide the same level of care and service to their customers. Pharmacy techs are trained to work at the pharmacy counter, and they also learn about the technologies used in the pharmacy.
The Pharmacy Tech Association (PhTA) works to raise awareness of the profession and improve the knowledge base of the specialty. The PhTA also works to promote the profession among the general public.
We’re glad to see the PhTA working to raise awareness of the profession, because it’s still one of the most under-researched fields in the healthcare industry.
It’s important for techs to understand the technology they’ll be using. The techs will have to learn to work in a medical environment, and they’ll have to understand the medical techs. If they don’t understand the techs, the techs will get sick, and they’ll lose their jobs. And that’s why we’re excited to see the PhTA working to raise awareness of the profession.
The PhTA is the Pharmacy Technology Association. They’re dedicated to educating the techs of their profession so they can better integrate and communicate with the medical techs. According to their website, “The Pharmacy Technology Association (PTA) is a professional association representing the pharmacy technology industry, its members and the entire pharmacy profession.
The PhTA provides an incredible website that has info for anyone involved in the healthcare field. Their online class materials are free to use, and they offer a ton of free informational posters, emails, and webinars.
