About ideaShare:  

With over 6,000 attendees the McKesson ideaShare 2017, July 12–16, 2017 was centered in the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans.

McKesson ideaShare is an annual conference for independent pharmacists to discover new solutions and technology to successfully compete and grow their businesses.

“We’re focusing on giving independent pharmacists and owners the knowledge, tools and resources they need to improve their pharmacy’s performance and maximize profits. This year’s show will highlight Health Mart’s approach to helping independents transform their business by driving improvements in clinical performance and store profitability,” said Steve Courtman, president, Health Mart.

“We’ve reimagined the meeting experience to give independent pharmacies more peer-to-peer networking opportunities focused on helping our members run a better business while becoming a preferred destination for patient care.” Attendees will gain access to industry experts, participate in personalized action-planning activities and network with peers.

McKesson ideaShare 2017 featured the Health Mart® Annual Meeting and more than 30 accredited CE courses designed to deliver the latest ideas and best practices in clinical services, new drug therapies, marketing, merchandising, financial management and succession planning. Attendees learned tangible skills to gain access to more patients, providers and services that help grow their business. New sessions added this year include an LTC and Specialty Pharmacy Summit, a new Lunch and Learn session, “Expanding Pharmacy Services — Providing Comprehensive Care for Patients with Diabetes,” and a Women in Pharmacy event.
