Misson Statement

For 37 years we have published the only magazine for the retail and institutional pharmacy markets that showcases the efficiencies and importance of technology on the clinical, operational, and financial management of the pharmacy. By advertising with ComputerTalk, you reach independent pharmacies, key decision-makers at large drug chains, supermarket chains, and mass merchandisers — as well as mail-order facilities, specialty pharmacies, and long-term care pharmacies. In 2017, ComputerTalk will sport a completely new look.

2017 Buyers Guides

The Annual Buyers Guide features 800–900-word company profiles in advertorial format (edited to meet the magazine’s style). Includes tables based on company-provided survey.
All display advertisements in the Retail Buyers Guide (March/April 2017) must accompany a minimum of one profile page.
The Issue provides both a print and a digital presence. It is posted at the ComputerTalk website for a year and is the basis for regular feeds on Twitter based on profile page content. Content will be included on our new community site. Profile placements also allow vendors to request one webcast in 2017.

We also publish an annual Health-System Pharmacists Buyers Guide with a circulation of 14,000. 


We maintain a digital presence cutting across the Web, with social media, and email newsletters. Our Website is generating over 5,000 visits a week from our target audience and we maintain a curated email list with over 8,000 recipients.
