ORLANDO, Fla. - Kroger may not be the only retail pharmacy in the hunt for divested Rite Aid stores following the proposed merger between Walgreens Boots Alliance and Rite aid, BNL Finance reported in a blog posted Thursday. In fact, they may not even be a good fit - Walmart in its move toward smaller retail footprints may be a better suitor. "However, I think the sleeping giants that no one is talking about ... are competing pharmacy benefit managers like Express Scripts Holding and Catamaran," wrote Brian Nichols, BNL Finance editor-in-chief. "All of Express Scripts and Catamaran’s competitors are getting stronger in the PBM space, with a combination of retail pharmacies, wholesale and PBM. [So] don’t be surprised if Express Scripts and Catamaran ... make a move to form a retail pharmacy business with 700 Rite Aid stores." (BNL Finance)

Walgreens and several other Chicago-area health care entities have formed a new group called the Health Care Council of Chicago, according to a Crain's report published Friday. “The biggest challenge that the Chicago-area health care community has is a lack of connectivity,” Steven Collens, CEO Matter, a healthcare incubator that helped found the organization, told Crain's. “A lot of the work we do at Matter is bringing health care executives and leaders and entrepreneurs and others who are passionate about innovation together, because that's how you create better ideas. That's how you foster innovation.” The group's inaugural meeting is Nov. 7. (Crain's)
