LAS VEGAS --(BUSINESS WIRE)
Today, AmerisourceBergen and Good Neighbor Pharmacy unveiled tools to help pharmacies connect with customers in new and meaningful ways. The solutions were presented at ThoughtSpot 2019, Good Neighbor Pharmacy’s annual tradeshow, and represent the organization’s continued evolution to ensure pharmacists have the resources they need to be the pharmacy of choice in their communities. The new solutions include:
“In this very dynamic healthcare environment, now is the time for independents to tell their stories — to patients, to prescribers, and to legislators – and to further strengthen these relationships,” said Brian Nightengale, RPh., Ph.D., president of Good Neighbor Pharmacy and SVP, Community & Specialty Pharmacy, AmerisourceBergen. “Independent pharmacists work hard every day to deliver the best possible care for their patients, and their communities need to know what sets them apart. Good Neighbor Pharmacy’s core programs, along with our team of business coaches, managed care experts, advertising managers, merchandisers and our sales and customer care teams, empower pharmacies to do that. We are excited to announce new offerings and continue to evolve to help pharmacists pick the right solutions that work for them. We want to fit into their workflow, help protect their independence and strengthen the connections that matter most.”
To close out general session, AmerisourceBergen recognized Lone Star Pharmacy and owner Andy McDonald from Santa Fe, Texas as the recipient of Good Neighbor Pharmacy’s 2019 Pharmacy of the Year Award. Lone Star Pharmacy stands out as a healthcare destination to many living in the Santa Fe area. Since 2015, patients have turned to McDonald to deliver the personalized care needed to improve their health. Having worked in a pharmacy since he was 16 years old, Andy works closely with patients to provide the type of unparalleled customer service only experienced at an independent community pharmacy. Additionally, Lone Star Pharmacy has been a vital member of the community, working with its patients who have been impacted by workforce strikes to provide access to affordable care.
While at the four-day annual tradeshow, attendees could attend a range of continuing education courses, panel sessions, and workshops, including thesecond annual “Women in Pharmacy” networking event. The AmerisourceBergen Foundation, an independent not-for-profit charitable giving organization dedicated to supporting health-related causes, also invited nonprofit partners Healthcare Ready, JDRF and Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America (CADCA) to ThoughtSpot to provide pharmacists with a range of best practices including, how to prepare for natural disasters, engage and support patients with diabetes and help address the opioid crisis in local communities.
ThoughtSpot is an annual conference hosted by Good Neighbor Pharmacy, a national independent pharmacy network offered through AmerisourceBergen.
