CVS Acquires 110 Schnuck Pharmacies Across the Midwest

CVS Acquires 110 Schnuck Pharmacies Across the Midwest | Pharmacies: the missing link?... | Scoop.it

With a majority of its locations on the East Coast, it makes sense that CVS would acquire a pharmacy chain in a less penetrated geographic market as a means to expand into new territory. By acquiring existing brick-and-mortar pharmacies, CVS avoids the cost and time required to build hundreds of new stores itself, opting rather to update and rebrand the existing stores into CVS locations. This strategy will come at much lower cost.

Why Pharmacies Are About To Be Hit Hard By Disruption

Why Pharmacies Are About To Be Hit Hard By Disruption | Pharmacies: the missing link?... | Scoop.it

To be fair, traditional drug distribution could hardly be described as primitive: they’re not particularly old-fashioned, generally have digitized logistics, and except for the parts of their business related to dealing with the administration, which do not affect users so much as pharmacies’ cash management, they have evolved significantly over the years. Nevertheless, they are subject to restrictions that determine, for example, the number of pharmacies that can be found in a given city or neighborhood, their opening hours, and above all, they sell a category of products that, generally speaking, we are not particularly keen to buy. Most of the time, we go to a pharmacy to obtain something that could just as easily be delivered to our homes.

Pharma’s Blockchain Trials: Novartis, Merck Test The Tech Popularized By Bitcoin | Pharmacies: the missing link?... | Scoop.it

The pharmaceutical industry has a paper problem. Every single box of medicine must include a paper insert with dosing instructions and technical information that can measure several feet long. Some patients read it over, some patients stash it in a drawer, while others just dump it in the trash. These pesky printouts can cause a massive headache for the entire drug supply chain if they are outdated or incorrect and result in a recall.
