“You have to be willing to do what your competition is not willing to do.” That was one of the key messages from motivational speaker and Olympic speed skier Vince Poscente, which also tied into the message Steve Courtman, president of Health Mart, and Tony Willoughby, Health Mart chief pharmacist, had for attendees at Tuesday morning’s Health Mart Annual Meeting.

“The best of a chain combined with the best of an independent pharmacy.”
That’s how Health Mart president Steve Courtman describes Health Mart’s “unique value proposition in the marketplace.” That value, he added, is defined every day in thousands of communities across the United States by the pharmacy owner-operators who serve as the most accessible and most-utilized patient care providers in their local healthcare networks.
Patient care is local. And at the end of the day, when the book has been written on healthcare reform that simple fact will create more opportunity for community pharmacy owners — at least the ones who are able to seize that opportunity.
Being successful is, in large part, all about having the right tools and resources. Looking to help Health Mart members run a better business, achieve better results for patients, and create a better future for community pharmacy, Health Mart unveiled a host of new programs and offerings during McKesson ideaShare 2013.
The pharmacy retail landscape may be growing increasingly competitive but independent pharmacy has an advantage — it’s in the sweet spot of providing quality patient care and personalized customer service, which independent pharmacy know how to do very well. That was a key message that new Health Mart president Steve Courtman had for attendees of the Health Mart Annual Meeting on Friday at McKesson ideaShare 2013.
