E-Commerce, Subscriptions and Memberships for IV Therapy

There's a lot of competition out there! How do you stand apart without cutting prices and starting a race to the bottom? Dr. Jonathan Kaplan, a board certified plastic surgeon and founder/CEO of BuildMyHealth will discuss how he and his team market their IV bar. Through e-commerce, subscriptions and memberships, he'll discuss their path to success with loyalty rather than steep discounts. Subscription business models are ones that charge clients a recurring fee for access to your product and services, however, on a deeper level, they are about building strong client relationships. Clients who already see value in what you are providing, turn into loyal followers who become reliable repeat customers and great referral sources. The higher the client retention rates are, the lower your acquisition costs long term. During this session, learn how to successfully include IV therapy and supplemental injections for your online store. Additionally, understand how subscriptions and memberships can incur loyalty without steep discounts.

Understanding the Differences Between 503A vs 503B Compounding Pharmacies, Quality Systems for Each Type of Pharmacy and Examples of Preparations Available from Both

With millions of medications being compounded each year in the US to meet unique needs of patients, both 503A and 503B pharmacies play an important role in the healthcare industry at different levels. A major element in pharmacy practice is the very important art and science of compounding medicines to meet the unique needs of patients. However, why do we need to know and understand the differences between the two and when is it appropriate to utilize each? This presentation will cover the differences between 503A compounding pharmacy and 503B outsourcing facility, the differences between the quality systems requirements for both. What you need to do and is required when a clinical practice is missing IV bags and what the different federal requirements are for a pharmacy versus a medical practice.

Commercial Real Estate Fundamentals for IV Hydration Therapy

For most IV hydration and healthcare practices, real estate is the second highest expense behind payroll. The difference between a properly or poorly chosen site and negotiated transaction can benefit or cost tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars over a ten-year period.

Being educated on commercial real estate fundamentals can increase the potential to make your practice a success.
