Chain Drugstore Daily 4 7 Sunday, August 25, 2019 However, the U.S. ranks poorly in health system performance. Our nation's unsustainable health- care costs are forcing the industry to rec- ognize – from a cost and outcomes per- spective – that it's more efficient to move toward a healthcare delivery model based on performance, value and outcomes. As the industry migrates away from fee-for-service reimbursement and moves toward pay-for-performance mod- els, pharmacies will no longer get paid simply for providing services like dis- pensing drugs. Pharmacies are the most frequent touchpoint in all of healthcare that a member experiences. PBMs can help improve outcomes and reduce costs by offering high-per- forming pharmacy solutions that drive quality care by influencing behavior change, increasing clinical value and improving adherence, safety and member service. Research also reveals that every $1 invested in pharmacist clinical services results in nearly $4 in benefit. MedNetwork ® Performance is a transparent, high-performance pharma- cy solution that leverages advanced ana- lytics and reporting that scores pharma- cy performance to help guide pharma- cies to reduce costs and improve mem- ber adherence and outcomes across all channels. Pharmacies can maximize outcomes and differentiate with enhanced clinical consultative services to improve adher- ence and member experience. Transparent, data-driven performance metrics in comparison with non-partici- pating or low-performing networks can increase sales and volume. Members can improve adherence, outcomes and their MedImpact (Cont'd. from p. 1) overall experience with deeper pharma- cist engagement. Health plans can improve outcomes – quality, financial and member – with transparent pharmacy performance reporting. Similar to CMS Star Ratings, MedNetwork scores and ranks pharmacy performance for pharmacies and plan sponsors. We apply cluster analysis to categorize and distinguish network per- formance, allowing them to maximize quality care while reducing costs. Industry-Leading, Transparent Technology Saves Time & Money MedImpact partnered with NCPDP to develop the first industry Pharmacy Portal that accesses NCPDP's resQ data in real-time. By leveraging industry efforts like NCPDP's resQ, MedImpact helps elimi- nate significant ongoing operational and technology costs and reduces overhead associated with managing network mem- ber pharmacies. Our Pharmacy Portal is designed to make network enrollment and credential- ing easy and transparent. Pharmacy users can use the same user login credentials to access the MedImpact Pharmacy Portal as they do to update their NCPDP phar- macy profile. This innovative technology also enables MedImpact to use all the data and documents uploaded to NCPDP's resQ as part of our enrollment and cre- dentialing processes, eliminating the need for pharmacies to respond to redun- dant "asks" for information. By working closely with our phar- macy partners, MedImpact helps stream- line the onboarding process, identify potential issues and save PSAOs time and money. Visit MedImpact at booth #817. REAL FOOD FROM THE GROUND UP Expands Product Offering The plant-powered snack revolution con- tinues at REAL FOOD FROM THE GROUND UP™ with the expansion of its cauliflower-based snack line that now includes Stars, Stalks and Tortilla Chips. Also joining alongside its cauliflower counterpart is butternut squash, the newest ingredient base for the brand's Pretzel line. REAL FOOD FROM THE GROUND UP launched less than a year ago with a line of cauliflower-based snacks that included crackers and pret- zels made from real veggies. Both lines have been celebrated as plant-based, bet- ter-for-you versions of familiar formats like the cheesy crackers you ate as a kid and traditional pretzels made from wheat flour. REAL FOOD FROM THE GROUND UP is expanding the cracker line with the launch of cauliflower-based star shaped crackers in Cheddar, Pizza and Sea Salt flavors. The brand is also launching cauliflower-based stalks, which are light and airy puff-like tubes, in Cheddar and Sea Salt flavors. The brand's cauliflower-based Grain Free Tortilla Chips in Sea Salt, Nacho and Lime fla- vors were also unveiled in March 2019. Another vegetable taking root this year from the brand is Butternut Squash, with the launch of butternut squash-based pretzels in both sticks and twists shapes. All REAL FOOD FROM THE GROUND UP snacks are certified by the Non-GMO Project, certified gluten-free and made from real veggies and vegan ingredients. The snacks are a fun and tasty way to sneak in some nutrition at snack time. "We are excited to expand our award- winning cauliflower-based snack line with the launches of Stars, Stalks and Tortilla Chips and to venture into a new vegetable offering with butternut squash-based pret- zels," said Aaron Greenwald, President of REAL FOOD FROM THE GROUND UP. "At REAL FOOD FROM THE GROUND UP, we're proud to be able to offer snacks, made from real veggies, that taste as delicious as the conventional versions, but deliver high nutrition standards.

Darrell Lea: Not Just for Liquorice Lovers From humble beginnings 90 years ago selling sweets from a pushcart, and later to a small factory under the first arch of the Sydney Harbor Bridge in Australia, Darrell Lea has a manufacturing pedigree almost unrivalled in the world of candy. In the U.S., Darrell Lea is known for its world famous soft liquorice which has been available for over a decade. Darrell Lea soft liquorice has fast become a firm favorite with those who prefer a softer, genuine, plant-based recipe as an alterna- tive to brands with a predominantly arti- ficial ingredient list. Darrell Lea thought the timing was right to launch a major new sub-brand specifically for the U.S. market that it knew Americans would love. Darrell Lea is proud to introduce its newest addition to the lineup, Real Twists in both 10- ounce Strawberry and Grape flavors. This full flavored, fruity confection is in the form of a twisted, soft bite candy without any of the tough bite qualities of those cur- rently sold locally. Each flavor will be available in a very generous 10-ounce bag for launch with a smaller 1.7-ounce on-the- go bag available later in the year. The total U.S. candy market is in slight growth, but who is driving that growth? It is the emerging brands who are innovating for the consumer of 2019. Consumers are seeking enhanced eating experiences and prod- ucts made with quality ingredients. Darrell Lea Real Twists are a retail solution to a growing problem. Produced in Sydney, Australia, all Darrell Lea brand- ed items are made with no artificial col- ors or flavors, no high fructose corn syrup, no preservatives and no GMOs. Keeping with the Darrell Lea promise of high standards, Real Twists does not dis- appoint on quality, ingredients, softness or flavor.
