Article

Register and Attend to Qualify for a OneStop Generics Rebate of Up to $6,000.

Registration is now open for McKesson ideaShare in Las Vegas from June 22–25, 2023. McKesson ideaShare is the nation’s premier community pharmacy annual education and networking event, hosted by McKesson, Health Mart, and Health Mart Atlas. The event returns with double the clinical and business educational opportunities, new pharmacy technician-focused learning tracks, and a 2% rebate on OneStop Generics purchases up to $6,000, with the chance to receive an extra month to earn their rebate.

“Strong pharmacies are vital to providing patients with the best possible healthcare outcomes and we are committed to helping equip pharmacies with the resources they need to thrive,” said Nimesh Jhaveri, Interim President, Community Pharmacy & Health at McKesson. “That’s why McKesson ideaShare 2023 is poised to deliver the most comprehensive and engaging educational program yet. Featuring timely insights, peer-to-peer learning opportunities, interactive sessions, and access to exhibitors with the latest technology, tools and products, attendees will discover new ways to help their pharmacies innovate and grow.”

Doubled Continuing Education Opportunities and A New Health Mart Atlas Special Session

To help pharmacists keep up with the rapidly changing pharmacy field, McKesson ideaShare has doubled the number of continuing education (CE) opportunities available. With more than 12 CE courses featuring current, evidence-based education led by pharmacists and pharmacy owners, attendees can earn up to 10 CE credit hours, enhance their knowledge, and learn tangible skills to support their pharmacies success in today’s environment.

In addition to accredited CE sessions, attendees can learn strategies to improve patient care and maximize pharmacy performance through roundtable discussions, workshops, and hands-on demonstrations. Ahead of the Center of Medicaid and Medicare Services (CMS) final rule changes anticipated to affect the 2024 plan year, Health Mart Atlas will host a special session to help pharmacies prepare for the management of these changes, including the potential for cash flow implications.

Introducing Dedicated Pharmacy Technician Content

As the role of pharmacy technicians expands, McKesson ideaShare is increasing its sessions and activities dedicated to pharmacy technicians. This year’s event will offer several new programs focused on pharmacy technician education, including:

  • A pharmacy technician track featuring tailored educational sessions, roundtables, and a lunch and learn
  • Courses to earn Basic Life Support (BLS) certification

Technicians are also invited to attend a special reception that celebrates their support of today’s pharmacies.

OneStop Generics Rebate Returns

The highly anticipated OneStop Generics rebate is back at this year’s McKesson ideaShare. By simply registering and attending McKesson ideaShare, pharmacies can qualify to earn a 2% rebate on generics purchases up to $6,000, per pharmacy, with a limit of five stores. Plus, by registering before May 1, pharmacies can receive an extra month to earn their rebate. This exclusive benefit is extended on behalf of McKesson to support independent pharmacy success in local communities across the U.S.

Special Guests

On June 23, Jason Dorsey, behavioral researcher, speaker, and author will kick off the program with an interactive keynote leadership session.
