RXportfolios “Welcome Package” content
What is an RXportfolio?
An RXportfolio is a professional, detailed,
confidential and pharmacy-specific electronic
portfolio used to organize one’s entire
professional history… from the first year of
pharmacy school, until retirement.
Think of an RXportfolio as an expanded CV, but
with much greater detail, management tools, and
the ability to attach supporting documentation
RXportfolios are designed exclusively for:
Pharmacy School Faculty
Why does the pharmacy industry need electronic portfolios?
We all know pharmacy is a dynamic industry and many changes are on the horizon. With the emergence of
industry-changing issues such as Medicare Part D, MTM, JAHCO, and an ever-growing elderly population,
pharmacists seeking reimbursement for consultation and MTM services as well as the ability to perform
specialized services (immunizations, limited prescribing, etc.) will need to do more than simply fulfill their
minimal state CE requirements. Greater transparency and accountability of pharmacist and technician
credentials, experience and professional development will be needed. In this ever changing healthcare
climate, pharmacy must not only keep up with the other healthcare sectors, but set the standard. The
RXportfolio program was developed to serve this purpose. RXportfolios allows students, pharmacists and
technicians to archive, organize and share every facet of their professional history. Storing one’s
professional history in electronic form is an old concept and many ePortfolio options exist with varying
degrees of practicality… but RXportfolios is unique. What makes RXportfolios different than any other
ePortfolio ever developed?
