McKesson ideaShare expected to host more than 1,500 operators

By Michael Johnsen - 05/08/2018
McKesson ideaShare 2018 is expecting more than 1,500 independent pharmacies to come together in July at The Venetian in Las Vegas to take advantage of more than 35 continuing education courses and more than 60 workshops and hands-on demonstrations.

“Building on the success of last year’s conference, the No. 1 priority this year is to provide even more networking opportunities to connect customers with industry experts and peers,” Chris Dimos, president, Retail Solutions, McKesson Corporation, said. “McKesson ideaShare will also feature more than 100 educational sessions – with more than one-third led by pharmacists and pharmacy owners – offering attendees best practices to put into action for immediate results.”

McKesson ideaShare 2018 will showcase how to implement and manage new possible revenue streams for independent operators, such as immunization programs, front-end solutions and specialty programs. In addition, attendees will receive training to grow their patient base, providers and services that help grow their business.

Attendees also are offered a 3% rebate on all McKesson OneStop Generics purchases, up to $20,000, from August 2018 through December 2018. For attendees who register before May 29, that rebate period is extended through January 2019, the San Francisco-based wholesaler reported.

Key networking events this year include the “Lunch and Learn: Getting the Most from Health Mart Atlas” and the second annual Women in Pharmacy – Own It event, featuring Mary LoVerde, “Moving Forward Together Changes the Future for All.” LoVerde is an expert on the practice of work-life balance and offers practical ideas on how to stay connected to what’s really important.

On July 10, former president of Trader Joe’s, Doug Rauch, will present his ideas for creating a culture of innovation during the Health Mart Annual Meeting. Rauch will share how to create a self-sustaining culture of innovation that embraces failure and consistently pushes the envelope.
