Waukesha, Wisconsin, June 19, 2019 – Dave Wendland, vice president, strategic relations, and member of the owners group at Hamacher Resource Group, Inc. (HRG) will be presenting two Johnson & Johnson-sponsored sessions at McKesson ideaShare next week. Both sessions are titled, “Navigating Customer Need State Opportunities,” and will focus on how independent pharmacies can deliver comprehensive customer solutions to give them long-term competitive advantages and new revenue streams for their stores. The first session is a lunch and learn on Wednesday, June 26th from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m., and the second is a workshop on Friday, June 28th, from 11:00 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
HRG category analysts, as well as Tom Boyer, director of national accounts, and member of the HRG owners group, will be in the McKesson booth, 4300, next to the Health Mart pharmacy. HRG associates will be available to answer any questions attendees may have about the planograms, shelf signs, or other merchandising tools HRG offers through McKesson. HRG associates also look forward to interacting with independent pharmacy owners and staff to learn about their particular challenges, innovations, and opportunities. This direct feedback is taken into consideration as HRG plans for upcoming modifications to the category management program they provide McKesson stores.
In addition, Wendland will be in the Independent Pharmacy Cooperative (IPC) booth 1521, demonstrating HRG’s Rx Track-and-Trace Compliance Service (RTTCS), which it offers IPC members at a discounted rate as a member of their Contract Advantage Plus program.
Boyer said, “We’re excited to be contributing and participating at ideaShare. McKesson is a valued strategic partner and we’re happy to share our knowledge and expertise of front-end solutions through informative sessions and in their booth.” Boyer continued, “We’re also glad to be able to showcase RTTCS through our relationship with IPC. The DSCSA 2020 and 2023 deadlines are getting closer and we have a reliable solution for pharmacies to help them meet the requirements of the law.”
