Launch of Dermatology GPO DermSource a Success
Looking for Strength in Numbers
GLEN COVE, N.Y., December 13, 2018 (Newswire.com) - On Cyber Monday, DermSource launched as “the” quintessential purchasing platform for dermatology products attracting independent pharmacies nationwide. Products are discounted at rates 30%-60% cheaper than the average GPO (group purchasing organization), with DermSource limiting their profitability to only 3% above the acquisition price.
Independent pharmacies find it difficult to compete against the big guys who have combined resources and frankly, have cornered the market on certain drugs. Members of DermSource are independent pharmacies that understand the super power of combined forces in purchasing for improved profitability and value-added service to its customers.
On opening day at DermSource Yuriy Davydov, the Founder and CEO, received inquiries from pharmacies who were clearly inspired and grateful for the new platform. In reaction to all the calls he received he shared, “I’ve been in this industry for 10 years and one thing I’ve noticed is pharmacies don’t talk to each other. The feedback I have received is a sign of change. We must begin supporting each other and nurturing the group power of DermSource so we can level the playing field for the independent pharmacy to grow and prosper. Full transparency, fair prices and fair play will go a long way.” One pharmacist and owner, Greg Savino of Baybridge Pharmacy in New York, said, “I signed up early and started purchasing the first day. This is a no-brainer. I’ve reached out to some of my biggest competitors in the field, and I’m trying to get them on board. The more we purchase the better the deal.”
