Medicap: Getting a Dose of Business Acumen
At Medicap Pharmacies, retail pharmacists needed business acumen training to better understand how to affect the bottom line results. One immediate effect after just one day of Celemi training resulted in a three percent reduction in inventory, and further improvements are materializing.
Karen Merrill was on a mission. As VP Operations for GRX Holdings, she wanted to help the retail pharmacy managers in their consortium think smarter about the business. “Pharmacists are highly skilled professionals, but they don’t get much business education in their training,” notes Ms. Merrill, who is responsible for helping twelve retail pharmacies and three specialty pharmacies meet sales goals and other financial targets.
“I was impressed with how clearly the simulation delivered the learning points. It really captured my attention.”
