Conference Recap: ASHP 2023

The 58th annual ASHP Midyear Clinical Meeting and Exhibition was held last week in Anaheim, CA where over 20,000 attendees from around the world came together to attend a variety of educational sessions and discover innovative technologies. The ASHP Midyear Clinical Meeting and Exhibition is renowned for its diverse programming, and this year’s event was no exception. Covering a broad spectrum of topics, the sessions ranged from pharmacists’ contribution to value-based care to the role of pharmacy in population health management to of course, the use of AI chatbots in healthcare technology. Artificial intelligence has been a viral topic in healthcare throughout 2023 as evident by the themes and sessions of the industry’s most popular conferences including ViVE and HIMSS.  

This marked EveryDose’s first appearance at the largest pharmacy event of the year, showcasing our best-in-class medication adherence platforms to and engaging with pharmacy professionals and students. The pharmacist’s role encompasses more than merely dispensing medications. They play a crucial role in advising patients on lifestyle adjustments, medication therapy management (MTM), and helping patients achieve optimal medication adherence. Pharmacist-led interventions to improve adherence have become increasingly popular due to their effectiveness especially in older adults and those with chronic diseases like diabetes.  

ASHP 2023 offered EveryDose the opportunity to engage with pharmacists about the EveryDose clinical portal and patient facing mobile application. We heard from many pharmacy professionals that their patients ask for recommendations for a medication reminder tool and until they discovered EveryDose, they just suggested using the alarm clock app. Through ASHP, pharmacists gained exposure to EveryDose and can equip their patients with a free, simple application that not only provides daily reminders but also offers educational materials like leaflets, food alerts, and drug-drug interactions.  

The ASHP Midyear Clinical Meeting and Exhibition showcased the industry’s commitment to innovation, emphasizing the critical role pharmacists play and highlighting solutions that allow pharmacists to provide the highest quality of care to their patients. EveryDose’s platforms serve as a valuable resource, empowering pharmacists and patients alike in the pursuit of optimal health. We’re grateful for the opportunity at ASHP to showcase our technology and contribute to the ongoing dialogue on the future of pharmacy.
