Numbers and percentages, ratios and formulas—these always tell a story about the condition of your business, but they can be much more powerful in guiding your practice to successful expansion and increased profits. This program will bring you the data that will help you to benchmark your practice along-side your most successful pharmacy peers, but it doesn't stop at that! Your independent pharmacy colleagues who have been profiled in the digest will share their market niches and the data they used to make decisions, they will share how they implemented these key decisions and what the end result was on their pharmacy's bottom line.
