Paradigma baru peran apoteker dalam pelayanan kesehatan adalah perubahan pelayanan yang berfokus hanya kepada produk obat, tetapi menuju ke pelayanan perawatan pasien (patient care), sehingga mencapai hasil terapi (outcome) yang maksimal.

Pharmacists should move from behind the counter and start serving the public by providing care instead of pills only. There is no future in the mere act of dispensing. That activity can and will be taken over by the internet, machines, and/or hardly trained technicians. The fact that pharmacists have an academic training and act as health care professionals puts a burden upon them to better serve the community than they currently do.”
(http://www.who.int/medicines/publications/WHO_PSM_PAR_2006.5.pdf ).

Tergantung kepada setting yang ada di setiap sistem pelayanan, peran ini perlu dikembangkan, diuji coba dan dievaluasi dari waktu ke waktu, sehingga tercapai hasil maksimal dari kerja tim. Berbagai konsep telah dikembangkan dan disepakati. Yang ebih penting adalah melaksanakannya secara bertahap.
