Get in Touch

Turning a profit in the retail pharmacy market is increasingly challenging. Independents face significant competitive threats from big box retail chains. Drug costs are continually on the rise while DIR fees and pharmacy benefit managers are exerting downward pressure on drug prices and profit margins.

For independent pharmacists, profitability often depends upon finding the right pharmacy solutions.
To thrive and succeed in this difficult landscape requires innovative pharmacy solutions that can help the independent pharmacy to manage the business more efficiently. Solutions that show how to increase pharmacy profits, that provide help with independent pharmacy branding or that simply share pharmacy best practices can mean the difference between a year where profits are up and a year where losses are big.
For many independent pharmacies, the innovative pharmacy solutions that are helping to improve profitability and productivity come from the one of the nation’s leading community pharmacy wholesaler – H. D. Smith.
