Rite Aid enters fifth Health Alliance partnership

BY DSN STAFF

WOODLAND HILLS, Calif. — Rite Aid and Heritage Provider Network last month announced a new agreement to bring the Rite Aid Health Alliance program to HPN’s chronic and polychronic patients in Southern California.

The Rite Aid Health Alliance relies on pharmacists, physicians and in-store health coaches to help patients meet certain health-related goals central to improving outcomes.

“Known as a pioneer in population health management, HPN has long believed in and offered a wide array of innovative and preventive healthcare services,” stated Ken Martindale, Rite Aid president and COO.

The Rite Aid Health Alliance partnership with HPN is the largest to date since Rite Aid announced the program earlier this year. Thirty Rite Aid pharmacies and eight HPN affiliates, as well as its ACO, will participate in the program.

Rite Aid Health Alliance also has partnerships in Greensboro, N.C.; Glendale, Calif.; Buffalo, N.Y.; and Hershey, Pa.

Latest evolution of RAD Wellness ‘90210-worthy’ – Part 1

BY DSN STAFF

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — Rite Aid celebrated the latest evolution of its Wellness store format, with a June 23 grand opening truly befitting of its 90210 address.

Beauty plays a starring role and is vastly expanded to add prestige lines, and a more interactive customer experience, with a huge mood-setting video wall and a beauty adviser — a relatively new in-store position; Rite Aid now has about 20 beauty advisors in select locations.

The store features lower sight lines between the front door and the pharmacy, and lower counters between pharmacy staff and patients. In addition to Wellness Ambassadors to help engage customers in OTC, the store also features enhanced signage and informational displays to help simplify product selection at the point of purchase.

Other new features include the company’s first in-store café and an outdoor dining patio with free Wi-Fi.

“The Beverly Hills store is a great example of how we are aggressively evolving the Wellness store format to identify concepts that perform and can be broadly applied to future remodels and test new concepts,” said Rite Aid president and COO Ken Martindale.

In the following pages, DSN looks at the newest Wellness store, and looks at how the format has evolved since its 2010 introduction.
