Drug Store News this summer spoke to three Good Neighbor Pharmacy owners as part of its coverage of AmerisourceBergen ThoughtSpot 2016. In these exclusive interviews, independent pharmacists shared changes implemented in their pharmacy to expand patient care and increase front-end profitability, the importance of customer service and the role of the independent pharmacist in the community.

At this year’s Good Neighbor Pharmacy’s ThoughtSpot conference, there were a lot of takeaways from the show that pharmacists can implement immediately upon returning to work. There was a new Innovation and Technology Showcase on the show floor this year. AmerisourceBergen announced its plan to launch a state-of-the-art ordering system called ABC Order, which will be available to customers in 2017.

As critical as it is to celebrate the independent spirit that drives community pharmacists to excel in patient care, it is as critical to empower those independents by ensuring patient access. AmerisourceBergen is empowering its independent partners in three critical ways: by ensuring patient access through its direct relationships with manufacturers, by commanding better terms through greater economies of scale and by heralding the market power independent pharmacy can wield in reaching underserved patient populations with specialty medicines.
