Flipping the script: The state of the pharmacy industry
What’s driving the pharmacy business these days? Besides the usual concerns about government legislation, sales and profits, and the endless battle to find the right pharmacist to man the counter, retailers and suppliers point to a number of other trends that could — if properly developed — help pharmacy operators streamline their operations, increase efficiencies and improve the quality of patient care.
There is no doubt that retailers have their hands full with their pharmacy business, but, at the same time, many merchants are becoming more and more convinced that such things as automated robotic prescription dispensing, pharmacy counseling and medication management, immunizations, home delivery of prescription drugs, and discount prescription pharmacy cards can help them better connect with consumers.
In the end, many have said, retailers need to include many of these services and technologies if they want to stay ahead of the curve and keep their pharmacy counters relevant and profitable.
The question, of course, is what to focus on and how to implement the strategies that best work for individual chains. Finding the money to put these programs into place also is an important issue, though many industry officials emphasized that they often quickly pay for themselves by bringing in new business.

Inside ALEC: How Corporations Ghost-Write Anti-Consumer State Telecom Legislation ·
[Stop the Cap! has written extensively about the pervasive influence some of the nation’s largest cable and phone companies have on telecommunications legislation in this country.  On the state level, one group above all others is responsible for quietly getting company-ghost-written bills and resolutions into the hands of state lawmakers to introduce as their own.]
The American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) is the latest corporate response to campaign finance and lobbying reform — a Washington, D.C.-based “middle man” that brings lawmakers and corporate interests together while obfuscating the obvious conflict of interest to voters back home if they realized what was going on.
ALEC focuses on state laws its corporate members detest because, in many cases, they represent the only regulatory obstacles left after more than two decades of deregulatory fervor on the federal level. State lawmakers are ALEC’s targets — officeholders unaccustomed to a multi-million dollar influence operation. The group invites lawmakers to participate in policy sessions that equally balance corporate executives on one side with elected officials on the other. Consumers are not invited to participate.
