For independent pharmacies, the right generic drugs supplier can have a significant impact on profitability and the quality of customer care.
Managing an independent pharmacy today is more difficult than ever. The cost of drugs is rising, margins are slimmer, and the pressure from pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs) is creating new challenges to making a profit. In this highly competitive market, generic pharmaceuticals are a vital revenue stream, and your generic drugs supplier can make or break your efforts to compete.
When choosing a generic drugs supplier, pharmacies have many good options, but a good bet would be to engage an independent pharmacy wholesaler who focuses on serving pharmacies of similar size and complexity. When you want a generic drugs supplier that’s focused on helping independent pharmacies survive and thrive, H. D. Smith offers highly competitive generic prices along with business solutions tailored to the needs of the independent pharmacy.
