    Pharmacy Podcast Episode 145 Independent Pharmacy Owner Jerry Shapiro

    in Business

    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.

    Pharmacy Podcast Episode 48: Independent Pharmacy is Vital to Our Healthcare System

    in Business

    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?”

    Pharmacy Podcast Episode 39: Scalable Social Media and Independent Community Pharmacy

    in Business

    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!
