Roland Thomas began his career with a national wholesale drug company. He became the youngest Pharmacy Design Consultant in the company’s history. He left the company in 1970 to begin his own company. He sold his interest in Display Options, Inc. in 2001 and at the writing of this book is a pharmacy planning specialist with their Rx Planning Solutions division. He served as president of both the North Carolina and South Carolina Traveling Members Auxiliary that were created to support each state’s Annual Pharmacy Conventions. Roland served on the South Carolina Board of Pharmacy in 1987 1988 as an ex-officio member. He has written several articles for The Southern Pharmacy Journal and The Palmetto Pharmacist. Many of his projects were featured in the SPJ with cover stories, one of which was shown on the front cover. Roland searched far and wide, without success, to find a handbook covering many of the topics covered in his book. That further inspired him to create one that could possibly help independent pharmacists make better choices.

Welcome to Uptown Drug & Gift Shop, a family-run business established in 1945. The proprietors are Jo Ann and Jerry Shapiro, who purchased the store from Jerry’s parents in 1969. For twenty-seven years, the store was located in the mid-Wilshire area. Seeing the rebirth of downtown L.A., we decided to move our business there in August of 2004.
Our pharmacy is dedicated to helping all of our patients receive the best possible medical care as it relates to pharmacy services. First and foremost, we are prescription specialists. In order to maintain our high standards, we have gathered together a varied and large staff. Each member’s goal is to make sure that every patient gets the personal attention that they deserve.
We interview - Danny Vela owner of Lee’s Pharmacy in McAllen, TX and member of the Rio Grande Valley Independent Pharmacy Association, who explains the situation in Texas (& throughout the country) that pharmacies have been facing when the state began its transition to managed care for Medicaid. Pharmacy benefit management (PBM) companies were brought in to oversee the state’s prescription drug program.
Vela’s observation about the situation: “States that have tried this in the past, are now going back to the way they used to do things before. States that are going back, are using the [old] Texas vendor drug program model to go back to. So logic tells you that we had a great program in place. Why did we mess with it?”

Using Social Media in your Community Pharmacy Business
It all started with a question:
“Why is it so difficult for franchises and other businesses to use social media, and how can we make it easier and more affordable?”
The answers came after speaking with hundreds of individual franchise owners from a variety of industries. The result? A low-cost, high value, product that would work for any group of businesses, franchise or not. Our “scalable” approach means that we become intimately acquainted with a small number of industries, build a platform for each, and use frameworks (but not cookie-cutter solutions) for each. By focusing on select business types, we can offer a higher level of service at a reduced cost.
To this end, Scalable Social Media acquired the services of the best web development and design professionals around, teamed up with individuals who have used social media for business and formed what we now consider to be, one of the best approaches available. Our dedicated writers, editors and Community Managers are of the highest caliber – passionate and skilled. It’s our very great pleasure to use all these assets to make yours a successful social business!
