CVS Health employs more than 50,000 pharmacy technicians across the country. In honor of National Pharmacy Technician Day on October 16, and every day, we recognize the valued support they provide to CVS pharmacists and pharmacy teams across the organization.
In many ways, these individuals represent the face of our company to patients, physicians and caregivers. As the first point of contact in the prescription fulfillment process, they greet customers, take orders from prescribers over the phone, work with pharmacists to prepare and label medicines, and ensure that prescriptions include the correct dosage and instructions.
Beyond filling prescriptions, pharmacy technicians build trusting relationships with the patients, listening to their concerns, answering their questions, and making them feel valued. Each and every one of them play a vital role in our purpose of helping our patients on their path to better health.
