Activity Overview 

Data Visualization is an effective decision-making tool that enables pharmacists and pharmacy technicians to make well-informed decisions backed by data. By following data visualization best practices, pharmacists and pharmacy technicians can reduce the time and costs of questions data consumers may ask by communicating effectively. In addition, they can use the data visualization best practices to communicate data-backed ideas effectively to drive practice transformation in different healthcare settings. 

The American Society of Health-System Pharmacists is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education as a provider of continuing pharmacy education with Commendation.
