Cvs Pharmacy

...Pharmacy Service Improvement at CVS Rhiannon Graham PID: 3634552 Redesign the Pharmacy Service Process at CVS Customer Value Store (CVS) is one of the largest retail drugstores in the United States. CVS has over 4,000 stores and generated revenue of 24.2 billion dollars in 2002. CVS grew at the same rate as other major pharmacy chains, but continued to lose millions of customers due to service issues. These problems led to the implementation of the Pharmacy Service Initiative (PSI). In observations of various stores, as well as interviews with employees, 67 major problems were identified. The steps in the service process include drop-off, data entry, production (prescription fulfillment), quality assurance, waiting for pickup, and the pickup. Each of these areas contain possibilities for improvement. The first step of the process is the drop off. This is the first interaction between the customer and the CVS employee. The problem that occurred at this step was the drop off window was sometimes unstaffed by the employee. This problem arose because the only work station available for employees to use was located near the pickup window. A potential solution to this issue is to put another work station at the drop off window. This would also allow for employees to verify all customer information at the drop off instead of at pick up which would shorten customer wait times at the pickup window and allow those transactions to run more smoothly. When the customers drop...

Business Owner

...For my interview I decided to pick the owner of the company I work for. The owner’s name is J. Kent McNew and he is the owner of Eastern Petroleum Corporation. The company is a petroleum distributor of gasoline primarily through gas station outlets. Eastern Petroleum Corporation is a Maryland corporation and its corporate office is located in Annapolis, MD. Mr. McNew sells products in MD, VA, DC, and some in DE. The scope of the business is done in the Mid-Atlantic Region of the United States. Eastern Petroleum is an S-Chapter corporation, which means S Corporations do not pay any income taxes. Instead, the corporation's income or losses are divided among and passed through to its shareholders. The shareholders must then report the income or loss on their own individual income tax returns. Mr. Kent said that he’s always had an entrepreneur spirit and it started way back when he was in grade school. He stated in his school each class had to sell garden seeds and he always sold the most in his class, so that inspired him to go into business. He worked for Hess Oil Company while attending the University of Richmond, realizing while selling products to his customers he wanted to go into business for himself. So he started the company called “Eastern Petroleum Corporation”. To come up with the corporation’s name he sat down with a legal pad and just wrote down different names that came to mind.

Pharmacy Essay

...Heidi M. Zayas Roche April 16, 2014 Pharmacy Studying science is probably the most challenging thing I’ve ever done in my life. Three years ago, I would have never thought that I was going to do what I’m doing right now. Before deciding that pharmacy was the career that I was going to pursue, I knew I wanted to invest my money and time on studies that later on would give me the opportunity and knowledge to help people. Most people think that pharmacists just work behind the counter preparing the medication that doctors prescribe to their patients. In fact, the field of pharmacy has different specialties; some of these are retail, clinical, and nuclear. Retail is the common idea that people have of pharmacists. In a retail setting, there are the pharmacy technicians, the pharmacist, and also the manager of the pharmacy. Prescriptions by the doctor are dropped by the client, and the pharmacist is responsible for making the medication and informing the patient about the side effects of the drug. Pharmacists are basically the ones who run the place. They are responsible for providing advice about health issues, symptoms, and medications in response to customer enquiries. They also do the recruiting, training, managing of staff, processing prescriptions, dispensing of medication, attending to meetings with medical representatives, managing of budgets, keeping statistical and financial...

...Connor Smith Smith 1 English 8 Mrs. Drako April 25, 2014 A Profession as a Pharmacist A pharmacist plays a vital role in the patient-physician-pharmacist relationship. Both the physician and pharmacist have a major concern for the well- being of the patient. The pharmacists role is to dispense prescription and over the counter medications to patients, and offer their expertise in the safe use of them. They also provide advice on leading a healthy lifestyle, conduct health and wellness screenings, administer various immunizations and supervise pharmacy technicians. (“Occupational Outlook Handbook”). Pharmacists must also collaborate well with other health care professionals in order to monitor and review the most effective medication therapies for their patients. A career as a pharmacist can be a rewarding profession but in order to be successful, a pharmacist must be well trained, organized and focused, and be willing to be very versatile. In order to become a pharmacist one must attend a higher institute that offers a pharmacy degree. In 1992 all colleges and universities in the United States voted to make the Doctorate of Pharmacy (Pharm.D.) the only type of degree one can obtain in order to practice pharmacy.

...Marques Whitmire was an easy individual to admire with his ambitious attitude that complimented his down-to-earth attitude. I met Marques at the Sheraton hotel of downtown Atlanta through my cousin, Reggie Scott, where they both were at on a business trip. Marques overheard our, my cousin and I, conversation about college and what I planned to do with my future and immediately joined in and gave his own insight. The interesting thing was that Marques had an MBA in Marketing which is something I aspire to do. He told me things to work at to get better and had all the answers to every single one of my questions. Although I had only met Marques once before my interview, he made it feel as if I had been around him fifty times. So, I chose none other than Marques Whitmire to interview. I called upon Marques for an interview and he agreed. Although Marques was a very busy man, he fit me into his schedule. He was in Atlanta on a business trip for the Honda Battle of the Bands and he arranged an interview for October 17th at two p.m. at Starbucks. I wanted to give a good impression so I was at Starbucks fifteen minutes before two shortly before Marques arrived. Marques walked in as if he had just left a business meeting. He was wearing a black suit, white shirt, black dress shoes, purple tie, and a pair of Calvin Klein spectacles that gave him a look that was hard to top. When I saw him, that’s what I imagined myself to be in a couple years. We both greeted each other...

...An Interview with a Doctor - Medicine, medical supplies, and medical treatment are multi-billion dollar industries crucial to the wellbeing of the public. Doctors and other members of the health-care industry do their best to provide excellent care for the nation’s sick and injured, while scientists and researchers work to develop new drugs and technologies to fight disease. We often view medical care as a basic human right; something that all persons, rich or poor, should have access to in times of need. But despite our notions of what healthcare should be, those who make a living in this industry, specifically owners of firms, must contend with the same economic questions facing businesses in any industry....

...Macy Walker HRM 424 Interview #1 Interview of Clinic Supervisor For my first interview I decided to interview Lacey Wilson, a nurse turned clinic supervisor of OMC Primary Care Clinic located in Port Angeles. I chose to interview her because my mother is a PA (Physician’s Assistant) there and I have also worked at the clinic since 2013 in the call center, so I am familiar with a lot of the staff including Lacey. I have always found it interesting that as a nurse she chose to take the turn towards management and I was very curious to find out why. During the interview we discussed many things including her current and past roles, what training she has had to help her do her job more effectively, and how experiences outside her job have helped her progress as well. Lacey graduated from UW nursing school in 2000 with a BSN (Bachelors of Science in Nursing) and has basically been with the clinic ever since. She started working with Primary Care in 2001 as a float nurse but was soon assigned to a team (at Primary Care there are four “teams”: Central, East, Cherry, and Sequim, each with their own doctors and one nurse). Not long after Lacey was assigned to a team she became the lead nurse, who is essentially responsible for all the other nurses working at the clinic. Lacey said working as a team nurse gave her experience with managing a small team of employees, including conflict management, time management, and customer service. Over the years Lacey has also been...
