McKesson ideaShare 2017: Continuing to Invest in Independent Pharmacy 

Aug 2017

McKesson continues to support Health Mart and independent pharmacies in gaining access to preferred networks, improving their bottom line and planning for their future:

  • AccessHealth®: As a market leader in managed care solutions and support for independent pharmacies, McKesson AccessHealth is focused on offering tools and solutions pharmacies need to achieve improved performance scores and reduced DIR collection amounts. In the exhibit hall, AccessHealth experts were on hand to discuss performance opportunities and action plans recommended by the myHealthMart and myMcKesson tools, including profitability reports and the DIR Estimator tool. AccessHealth experts are presenting in peer-to-peer workshops, highlighting pharmacies successfully achieving improved performance scores and reimbursement.

  • McKesson’s RxOwnership® is launching the Women in Pharmacy Own It Program, focusing on four key areas: ownership, mentorship, leadership and work/life balance for women. Creating a community of women helping women succeed, the program includes matching pharmacy students with owners and empowering pharmacy ownership. McKesson hosted the annual Ownership Transfer Luncheon, featuring a panel of industry experts experienced in buying, selling, and starting pharmacies. In the past year, McKesson has assisted over 400 owners start new pharmacies and has helped more than 4,000 pharmacies through the ownership-transfer process since 2008.

  • McKesson Connect NextGen Ordering has been updated to further improve customer ordering efficiency and effectiveness with fewer screens and a clearer returns process and workflows. The new purchasing portal also has real-time ordering suggestions and discount opportunities. There are also new capabilities to find and search items faster.

  • McKesson Pharmacy Technology and Services (MPTS) presented offerings from McKesson Pharmacy Systems (MPS), Macro Helix and Supplylogix. MPS is introducing Med Sync and Mobile Delivery across its portfolio of pharmacy management systems. Supplylogix showcased its suite of inventory management solutions for independent owners. Macro Helix, the 2017 Best in KLAS Category Leader for 340B Management Systems, provides innovative software solutions to help covered entities and contract pharmacies navigate the 340B environment. The team conducted live podcasts with new and existing customers that were broadcast on Pharmacy Podcast during and after the conference.
