As diabetes continues to afflict Americans of all ages, community pharmacies can improve service for patients while increasing profit margins by partnering with the right diabetic supply distributor.
The American Diabetes Association® reports that in 2015, more than 9% of the population had diabetes and that 1.5 million Americans are diagnosed with diabetes every year. For independent pharmacies striving to remain viable and competitive, providing customers with a wide range of diabetic supplies can be a reliable source of profit, as well as a critical part of serving the health needs of their community.
Selecting the right diabetic supply distributor is important. At one time, this would have meant a pharmaceutical distribution contract with a distributor that doesn’t care about the success of community pharmacies.
For community pharmacists seeking a diabetic supply distributor and an alternative to their wholesaler’s contract, H. D. Smith combines competitive pricing on medicines and pharmaceutical supplies with exceptional customer service and invaluable business solutions.
H. D. Smith: a leading diabetic supply distributor.
H. D. Smith is among the largest national wholesalers, serving one in six independent pharmacies nationwide. Since 1954, we have been committed to providing community pharmacies with the products, services and solutions they need to thrive in an increasingly competitive and complex marketplace.
Specialty medications such as diabetic supplies are a rapidly growing opportunity for community pharmacies to both improve service to customers and solidify revenue streams. As a diabetic supply distributor, we offer a wide range of diabetic products – from test strips and syringes to pen needles, glucose meters, pumps, stockings and more.
We also serve as a diabetic supply distributor for affordable medications through our 340B eligible product line. With a passion for helping independents deliver outstanding patient care, we provide lifesaving pharmaceuticals with responsive customer service as a diabetic supply distributor for community pharmacies everywhere.
More than a diabetic supply distributor.
While we pride ourselves on our services as a diabetic supply distributor, we are far more than a diabetic supply wholesaler to pharmacy partners throughout the country. We offer highly competitive pricing on generic and brand medicines. We are a leading medical products supplier and NARCAN distributor to independent pharmacies. And we provide a complete line of home healthcare supplies, consumer products and pharmaceutical supplies that enable pharmacies to continue delivering quality products and services to their customer base.
