The personalized relationship that has developed between the independent pharmacist and his and her patient has been threatened with the arrival of HMOs and drugstore chains. Since 1950, the number of independent pharmacists in the Philadelphia region has had a significant decrease. These numbers could continue to drop as restrictive managed care programs have the potential to hinder the continuation of independent pharmacy.

As we approach the 21st century, PARD is working to meet the challenges posed by pharmacy chains and third parties on the financial, political, and medical fronts. There is strength in numbers and PARD is serving as the collective voice of independent pharmacists throughout the Philadelphia region. PARD will fight to ensure that independent pharmacy continues to support communities with the personal care and knowledge that it has provided throughout the centuries. www.pardrx.com
