A crowd of independent pharmacists, owners and various other McKesson customers filled the Arie Crown Theater this week in Chicago at McCormick Place, where McKesson executives welcomed attendees to the Opening General Session of McKesson ideaShare 2016.
McKesson ideaShare 2016 may have officially kicked off Monday afternoon with the conference’s Opening General Session, but even before McKesson executives took the stage and this year’s Pharmacy of the Year award winnerswere announced, many attendees already had been busy in continuing education sessions, learning about new aspects of patient care as well as how to grow their independent pharmacy businesses.
McKesson’s Health Mart pharmacy network hosted its Annual Meeting in Chicago Tuesday morning, at McKesson ideaShare 2016, unveiling an important new program — the Health Mart Pathway to Better Performance and Profit(SM), which provides a strategic roadmap to help independent pharmacies shift the way they approach their clinical and financial performance and pharmacy operations, and demonstrates the value they can contribute to the local healthcare ecosystem.
If anyone needed evidence that the independent pharmacy is more to its patients than simply a place to get prescriptions filled, they need look no further than the McKesson Pharmacy of the Year Grand Prize winner and the three regional winners recognized by McKesson at ideaShare 2016.
McKesson ideaShare 2016 kicked off this year at the McCormick Place in Chicago, June 26 to 30, with continuing education sessions, a packed Exhibit Floor and a dymanic Opening General Session, where Rex Pharmacy was named the Pharmacy of the Year. On Tuesday, executives announced the launch of MyHealthMart at the Health Mart Annual Meeting.
