What We Learned at PioneerRx Connect

The 2022 Connect annual conference was PioneerRx’s biggest show ever. RxSafe’s booth had a ton of traffic, coming in a steady stream for all three days of the tradeshow, which took place June 17-19 in Nashville, Tenn.

“I’d like to thank everyone who stopped by the booth in Nashville to learn about the RapidPakRx, as well as our new RapidCardRx and RapidCountRx products,” says Bill Holmes, founder and CEO of RxSafe. “I learn so much from speaking with each and every one of you, and I continue to be amazed at the caring, innovation and determination that America’s pharmacy owners display on a daily basis.”

Key Takeaways from Connect 2022

Here are some key takeaways from the education sessions.

  1. Med Sync: we’ve gone from recognizing there’s a powerful “business case” for medication synchronization, to accepting it’s finally time to learn how to leverage med sync for as many patients as possible, integrating it into everyday pharmacy workflows.
  2. Managing change is critical for pharmacies everywhere. The post-pandemic landscape has fundamentally altered the game for independent drugstores. “It is now or never,” said Jeff Key, President of PioneerRx, at the Connect 2022 General Session.
  3. Marketing is a mindset. Kelly Goldsmith, Professor of Marketing at Vanderbilt University. Goldsmith shared data and research from the Covid-19 outbreak to explain evolving consumer psychology and how to employ these insights use to boost your business – and business model.

We’d also like to congratulate some RxSafe customers who won CPESN “celebration award” winners:

  • Panama Pharmacy, Florida – eCare Planning Award
  • Klingensmith’s Pharmacy, Pennsylvania – Quality-Focused Pharmacy Award

CPESN is doing some great things around the country and RxSafe is pleased to partner with them to improve both the health of patients and pharmacy bottom lines.

After speaking with hundreds of pharmacy owners at the show, it was clear they are taking all the learning to heart.

After all, everyone is looking for the answer to running a pharmacy in this new, post-Covid era. This is a now-or-never moment. Med sync, patient marketing and pharmacy transformation remained top themes at Connect.

RxSafe is committed to helping independent pharmacies navigate this critical time by offering transformative solutions that impact three vital areas:

  • Enhancing patient care – improved adherence means healthier patients
  • Promoting the pharmacy profession –pharmacists must operate at the top of their license

At the core of pharmacy transformation is healthier patients through better compliance, made possible by adherence packaging.
