CVS Health ranks on Fast Company’s list of innovators

BY David Salazar

CVS Health has made the Fast Company list of the world’s most innovative companies. The Woonsocket, R.I.-based healthcare company was ranked seventh on the Fast Company list of the 50 Most Innovative Companies, as well as No. 1 on its Top 10 Most Innovative Companies in Health list.

The top 50 list, curated from Fast Company’s top 10 lists, is meant to highlight leading enterprises that are exemplars of the best in innovation and business. The publication had more than three dozen of its editors, reporters and contributors survey thousands of companies to compile the lists.

“CVS Health is honored to be included by Fast Company on their 50 Most Innovative Companies list and as one of the Top 10 Most Innovative Companies in Health,” CVS Health president and CEO Larry Merlo said. “As a pharmacy-innovation company, we are committed to finding new ways of delivering on our purpose of helping people on their path to better health and I am very proud that our enterprise achievements are being recognized.”

The company, currently in an ongoing acquisition of health insurer Aetna, has been working to rethink the pharmacy, including its recently introduced ScriptPath prescription management system and the ways it leverages its CVS Caremark pharmacy benefits manager to help contain healthcare costs. Early last year, the company redesigned its CVS Pharmacy store design.
