SCOTTSBORO, Ala. — American Associated Pharmacies and Pharmacy Development Services on Monday announced a new partnership that will bring AAP pharmacies a special PDS membership providing custom content and training to improve profitability, performance and people metrics for independent pharmacies.
“We approached this partnership opportunity with the goal of helping pharmacies improve their bottom line,” AAP president and CEO Jon Copeland said. “Today’s business environment for independent pharmacies has created a challenging industry in which direct and indirect reimbursement limits and maximum allowable cost pricing are the norm. These changes have significantly cut into the profitability of the independent pharmacy. We are excited to partner with PDS, an industry leader at helping independent pharmacies increase their profits and stay competitive in this ever-changing environment.”
