Pharmacy Times ®, has been named the leading multimedia resource, in Media (Publication, Website, Email Newsletters) Read/Used Within the Past 6 Months among online respondents, according to the 2019 KANTAR Pharmacy Readership study. 1

“We are grateful to the pharmacy industry for their continued commitment, as demonstrated by Pharmacy Times® No. 1 ranking in several categories among pharmacists,” said John Hydrusko, vice president of Pharmacy Healthcare Communications. “This recognition is a testament to the continuous hard work of the entire editorial team and our mission to deliver best-in class-editorial content, across multiple communication platforms, designed to elevate the practice of pharmacy.”

The annual KANTAR Readership Study encompasses readership habits of thousands of pharmacists and pharmacy professionals, working in the areas of chain, independent retail pharmacies and health-system pharmacies. The study also measures the habits of individuals in key positions in pharmacy benefit management companies and managed care organizations.
