WHAT'S THE DEAL, ADAM?
Twice a year, I spend my evenings and weekends writing two comprehensive, fact-based, and nonpartisan reports on drug channel economics. In some small way, I hope to make the world a better and smarter place.
As I see it, The 2016–17 Economic Report on Pharmaceutical Wholesalers and Specialty Distributors is the only resource of its kind available anywhere.
- Using DCI’s proprietary economic models, I delve into the business segments and underlying profitability of each public wholesaler: AmerisourceBergen, Cardinal Health, and McKesson. This information allows you to assess differences among the public wholesalers’ business organizations, strategies, and financial performance.
- I also analyze how crucial healthcare trends will affect wholesalers and distributors, including: the growth of specialty pharmacies, changes in the generic drug market, new government regulations, hospitals’ acquisition of physician practices, the growth of narrow pharmacy networks, and much more.
- Many sections and chapters have been expanded or reorganized to better cover the latest industry developments. A new Preface section provides an integrated overview of the major themes that recur throughout the analysis.
FOUR FUN FACTS
- The chapters are self-contained and do not need to be read in order. (Really!) There are loads of internal hyperlinks to help you navigate the document and customize it to your specific interests and priorities.
- We are offering the option to download an additional PowerPoint file with images of all 102 exhibits. We introduced this feature with The 2016 Economic Report on Retail, Mail, and Specialty Pharmacies.
- There are 326 (!) endnotes. Most of which have hyperlinks to original source materials, which I’m sure you’ll find useful. These source materials offer a handy way to build your knowledge base beyond what’s included in the full report.
- Fair warning: I have reluctantly stripped out the jokes and pop culture references. Here’s what one reader thinks about this critical editorial decision:
Despite the dearth of memes, I'm sure you'll get a lot of value from the report. And if you have any questions (before or after reading the report), please email me.
