NCPA Digest Sponsored By Cardinal Health

NCPA is pleased to present you with the NCPA Digest, sponsored by Cardinal Health. The Digest is a summary of selected financial and demographic information that illustrates the independent community pharmacy market and the valuable services these pharmacies deliver to their patients. It is the most comprehensive report on independent community pharmacy available. Historically, the NCPA Digest has utilized NCPDP data as the base for its pharmacy count analysis. Consistent normalization to the NCPDP data has been conducted annually to produce NCPA’s final pharmacy counts as published in the Digest. Starting with this release of the 2021 Digest, NCPA moved to IQVIA, the leading source for pharmaceutical data in the industry, as our benchmark for store counts.
