Healthcare innovation. Precision care. The evolution of the community pharmacy. These were some of the biggest topics in healthcare in 2018, and unsurprisingly, the overarching themes of some of our most popular articles of the year. Overwhelmingly, our readers have been drawn to stories that provide actionable advice for how to adapt in a changing healthcare system, as well as those that provide predictions for what might be to come.
“We aim to provide insights on the most current healthcare industry topics and trends for our readers," said Stephanie Pavol, editor of Essential Insights and a communications manager for Cardinal Health.
