Understanding Pharmacy Distribution Economics - Keys to Effective Contract Negotiations
Participants will hear from six subject matter experts on a wide variety of topics. They will have a chance to raise questions and/or provide comments based on their own experiences and gain knowledge from each other during the presentations as well as during formal and informal networking opportunities. Participants have met many times in the past and have a high comfort level in sharing with each other.
This activity is intended for pharmacists.
At the conclusion of the activity participants should be able to:
• Provide an overview of pharmacy distribution channels servicing member organizations
• Discuss the distributor business strategies, including owned GPOs and services
• Demonstrate how distributors make money and the impact of product and account types
• Discuss the manufacturer influence on channel and class of trade
• Understand current trends in cost of goods (COGs) discounts
