Over the years, independent pharmacy owners have faced a growing number of challenges. PBMs, increasing DIR fees, and shrinking reimbursements continue to hurt community pharmacies.
The coronavirus outbreak only amplifies these problems for many pharmacy owners. With lobbies still closed, and physicians restricting office visits, reaching new patients is a big challenge.
What can independent pharmacy owners do to remain competitive?
RxSafe is sponsoring a brand new webinar, “How to Remain Competitive During COVID: Pharmacy Owners Weigh-In,” to bring you actionable strategies to help your pharmacy remain competitive despite the environment created by COVID-19.
The ‘New Normal’ of Pharmacy
Across the country, pharmacy owners are asking the same question -- what will the ‘new normal’ of pharmacy be?
Our live webinar will highlight the experience of three independent pharmacy leaders, currently overcoming the hurdles created by the pandemic. Blair Thielemier, founder of Pharmapreneur Academy, will lead an interactive discussion designed to inspire pharmacy growth.
Our panelists will discuss the strategies they have implemented to remain competitive, and how they are preparing for the ‘new normal’.
