IRVING, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Offering independent pharmacies practical advice for taking care of patients and growing their businesses, Health Mart® has kicked off its fifth Town Hall Continuing Education (CE) series titled “Revenue Remedies: Inject Profits into Your Business with Expanded Partnerships and Clinical Services.” Health Mart, the largest independent pharmacy network with more than 4,800 locally owned community pharmacies across all 50 states, will host more than 80 events across the country through early 2018.
Over the past five years, Health Mart has hosted more than 370 peer-to-peer Town Hall meetings to help members understand and improve the clinical, operational, and financial drivers that impact their business. The new Revenue Remedies events will help pharmacies overcome barriers and maximize clinical services to drive revenue while improving patient outcomes.
Each Revenue Remedies workshop features one of 18 highly successful Health Mart owners who will help attendees identify opportunities and overcome barriers to drive revenue and explore new ways to enhance provider partnerships. In the interactive peer-to-peer sessions, attendees will construct a plan to expand their immunization program, apply practical steps to ensure medication therapy management is profitable, and exchange insights and collaborate with peers on revenue-generating ideas. All independent pharmacy owners, pharmacists and techs are invited.
“Peer-to-peer networking and peer led education have proven to be a powerful catalyst in helping our independent pharmacies evolve how they deliver care and drive greater efficiency and profit into their business,” said Steve Courtman, president, Health Mart. “Revenue Remedies is the next step in providing the tools and resources they need to transform their business through revenue generating clinical services and expanding provider partnerships.”
With more than 4,000 Health Marts immunizing, the physician-signed Collaborative Practice Agreement (CPA) program is an example of how Health Mart is helping pharmacies successfully expand clinical services. Building on the success of the immunization CPAs, Health Mart worked with its third-party provider to expand the program to include customizable CPA templates which enable additional service delivery in the pharmacy and/or in local provider offices, as well as facilitating payment terms for collaborative drug therapy management services. Pharmacist CPA services templates are now available for all 50 states through myHealthMart, which pharmacies can customize and work with local providers to sign.
