The Transpharmation of Pharmacy Business Down Under - Pharmacy Podcast Episode 299

Special Pharmacy Podcast Show Guest, Robert Sztar. 

Robert Sztar is the founder of Pharmactive and has developed a unique 4-step method of ‘Transpharmation’ which covers:

1. Education – I teach you the purpose of the currently available technologies.
2. Discovery – I help pharmacy owners to discover processes in their business which can be aided or automated by technology
3. Partnership – I introduce pharmacy owners to the right technology partners who will help them to plan, implement, train and maintain their products in their pharmacy.
4. Optimisation – I  help you review the solutions implemented to ensure that the original objectives have been delivered upon, and discussing areas of potential improvement.

This is achieved through my  published book ‘Transpharmation’ which is positioned as the definitive guide to helping pharmacy owners begin their journey of partnership with technology. This will be supported by a series of mini-transpharmation workshops delivered both in-person and online, as well as the flagship 12-month program of Transpharmation, where i work directly with pharmacy owners to tailor a solution for their individual businesses.

The Transpharmation podcast show was launched in February 2014 to help pharmacy owners build better, smarter, more profitable 21st century businesses by embracing technology.
