VALLEY FORGE, Pa. — AmerisourceBergen's Good Neighbor Pharmacy, a network of more than 3,500 community pharmacies nationwide, on Tuesday launched ThoughtSpot, a national conference and trade show focused on helping community pharmacists grow their business. The conference will be held from June 20 to 23 at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas.
"ThoughtSpot is more than just a purchasing event or a place to get CE credits — it's a conference where community pharmacists can find resources and ideas to help their businesses thrive," Good Neighbor Pharmacy president Michael Cantrell said. "Our attendees have told us they want to learn about best practices in areas like pharmacy staffing, increasing share of profitability from nonprescription items and practical use for social media. ThoughtSpot will address all those topics in a way that allows attendees to begin producing results the moment they arrive home."
ThoughtSpot by Good Neighbor Pharmacy will focus on providing community pharmacists and their staff actionable tools to help their business, GNP reported. General session presentations will provide insight about where the community pharmacy industry is headed. Continuing education seminars on such issues as learning the pros and cons of expanding business opportunities or understanding the latest updates in diabetes management will be available for all attendees. Hands-on learning labs and interactive panels also will be available to provide practical business and clinical information.
More than 200 pharmaceutical manufacturers and suppliers are expected to attend.
