Contact IPC Pharmacy Services

The pharmacy industry is constantly changing and in order to survive and even thrive, you need to have an expert partner as your navigator.

For the last 40 years Independent Pharmacy Cooperative buying group (GPO) members have taken advantage of our Pharmacy Services support and business consultations as their navigator to solve three main challenges:

  1. What services should I offer and how do I get it up and running? (Expand Services)
  2. How can I make my operation more efficient and more effective? (Improve Operations)
  3. I need to grow. How do I market my store to my community? (Patient Acquisition)

IPC Members Succeed with Pharmacy Services Support and Consultation in the Following Areas:

Immunization Programs

Providing vaccines as a pharmacist is a great way to build additional revenue at your pharmacy. To help you get started on or improve your immunization program, we can help you understand how to promote your program and navigate the requirements and regulations in your state.

Performance Management

Using a performance information management platform provides your pharmacy with unbiased, benchmarked performance data. Our team can guide you through the implementation of the platform to increase revenue and effectively use it to improve patient’s health outcomes.

Point-of-Care Testing

Performing diagnostic testing in your pharmacy to give patients rapid and reliable results to aid in the care of patients helps to enhance revenue for community pharmacies. We can support your team in finding resources for training and help you implement your program.


The 340B program offers eligible healthcare providers access to low-cost medications, which allows them to expand the type and volume of care they provide to vulnerable populations. Pharmacy Services can help you understand the program rules and whether you are eligible.

Medical Billing

Generating healthcare claims for submission to insurance companies ensures that a pharmacy will be paid for medical services rendered. Our team can help you understand the intricacies of this process to make sure your pharmacy receives proper payment for services rendered.

Long Term Care

Providing medication and consultation services to long-term care facilities is a great way to diversify your business and enhance revenue. Our Pharmacy Services team can help you identify and implement the resources you need to enter this market.

Other Clinical Services

As with the other services and educational opportunities, Pharmacy Services is here to answer your questions. If you are interested in clinical services not listed here, please reach out to our team. We are happy to help you or direct you to the appropriate resources.
