Pharmacies and Retail Clinics have Billion Dollar Opportunity - North Highland has the Solution

February 25, 2014

North Highland, a global consulting firm, along with its marketing services division, Sparks Grove, has capabilities to help pharmacies and retail clinics realize new revenue growth with the passage of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (ACA).

"With prescriptions and clinic visits in mind, capturing just 10 percent of the newly insured could earn organizations $825 million in revenues in year one alone," said Fletcher Lance, National Healthcare Leader for North Highland and vice president. "The challenge for these retailers is to move quickly - strategizing now and implementing those strategies as soon as possible. The most nimble organizations will be those who see the greatest benefit."

The ACA is estimated to bring 30 million Americans into the healthcare sector through the individual mandate requiring most people to have health insurance.

"To serve this unique opportunity, we will bridge many of our capabilities from North Highland's healthcare, life sciences and retail practices," said Elizabeth Ebert, North Highland's Retail Solutions Experts. "Our solution is holistic, and encompasses business intelligence, information technology, operations, marketing and customer experience to provide end-to-end success."
