Walgreens launches online search tool to connect customers and pharmacist

Deerfield, Ill. -- Walgreens launched a new online tool called “Find Your Pharmacist,” that allows customers to select a pharmacist by matching their health care needs with the areas of expertise, specialties, languages and clinical backgrounds of Walgreens pharmacists.

While location historically has been a leading factor for selecting a pharmacy or pharmacist for prescription needs, new research by Walgreens shows clinical training and areas of expertise are also among respondents’ main reasons for selecting a pharmacy or pharmacist. In fact, nearly 70% of respondents would consider a different location or pharmacist if the pharmacist was trained in specific areas that suit their needs.

The search tool also provides a map and the opportunity to meet the store pharmacy team. Mobile users can also access the tool on-the-go through any web-enabled mobile device.
