McKesson announced on Friday that it has completed its previously announced acquisition of Medical Specialties Distributors, a distributor of infusion and medical-surgical supplies as well as biomedical services to alternate site and home health providers.
McKesson ideaShare 2017, an interactive forum for independent pharmacists from across the United States, broke attendance records with the number of independent pharmacists and owners on hand to learn about how McKesson, hand in hand with its Health Mart franchise team, can help independents become a preferred destination for patient care. With improvements made to myHealthMart, introducing a new DIR estimator tool and optimizing generics sourcing, those attendees weren’t disappointed.
Health Mart community pharmacy, Bartle’s Pharmacy in Oxford, N.Y., has received McKesson’s Pharmacy of the Year Award in recognition of its clinical performance, high-touch patient relationships and proactive advocacy efforts.
Health Mart hosted its Annual Meeting on July 14, boasting the largest attendance in the franchise network’s history. The meeting built upon last year’s momentum around the Health Mart Pathway that helps independent pharmacy retailers to invest in quality measures and empowers them toward better clinical performance and profitability.
