Waukesha, Wisconsin – November 21, 2018 – Dave Wendland, vice president, strategic relations and member of the owners group at Hamacher Resource Group, Inc. (HRG), will moderate the “Chronic Care Patient Management” session at the Drug Store News Annual Industry Issues Summit at The Ziegfeld Ballroom in New York, NY, November 28th. This will mark the fifteenth year Wendland has moderated at the event.
Wendland will be leading the discussion with seven panelists consisting of retailers, a consumer products manufacturer, and an insurer, including Thrifty White, Health Mart, H-E-B Pharmacy, Rite Aid, Costco, Becton Dickinson, and United Healthcare. There will be six topics for input, including the pharmacist’s role in chronic care management, prevention, outcomes measurement, and future states.
Wendland stated, “Pharmacists are the most trusted and underutilized medical professionals in the healthcare ecosystem, but they need to move past the paradigm of assisting patients post diagnosis to helping educate and encourage patients to practice preventative measures. I am interested to hear these retail leaders share their visions for how they’ll be setting up frameworks and guidelines to encourage that shift. ”
