The dynamic instability of the industry requires new approaches and solutions that can shift with the demands of re-imagining the future of pharmacies. "Impact is not a static plat- form. Our development team is con- stantly evaluating gaps and then filling them. We're listening. We build our technology quickly and efficiently because our clients can't wait. They need solutions now." One of the key components of the Impact tool is "Measure," an easy-to- read dashboard that offers a visual snapshot of how a pharmacy is actually performing. It allows users to prep for meetings in under three minutes and offers a 10,000-foot view. And when they hear pharmacies are struggling to evaluate and measure any specific met- ric, such as GER guarantees or DIR accruals, the XIL team works to enhance the platform and Measure tool within a short period of time. These additions allow users to quickly spot if their payer mix is shifting, or if their XIL Consulting (Cont'd. from p. 1) reimbursements are incorrect and then make critical adjustments. Arguably the biggest disrupter Impact offers is the "Negotiate" vertical. This tool allows pharmacies to under- stand and strategize when and how to react to new payer amendments and con- tracts. With Impact, what normally takes weeks to analyze and evaluate now takes minutes. This gives pharmacies more actionable data and confidence when addressing payer issues. "Technology coupled with deep insights from both clients and our senior team members is game changing for our clients," says McCall. "This is only the beginning. Pharmacies can join our user group to help prioritize next level devel- opments. This summer, we're launching a brand new DIR recovery product as part of the Impact platform. And while our next significant development is under wraps, I can say that it involves predic- tive analytics and it's about to revolution- ize this entire space."

Probiotics act on multiple features of the immune system, for example by enhanc- ing the defensive capabilities of cells critical to the fight against pathogenic invaders. A growing body of evidence sug- gests those effects on the immune system translate into reductions in the incidence and duration of illnesses. For example, a meta-analysis found probiotics reduce the risk of common cold infections by 12 percent. Given adults typically experi- ence several colds a year, at a cost of $25 billion to the U.S. economy (Hao et al. 2011; Kang et al. 2013), the impact of such an effect on individuals and society could be big. Recognizing the importance of this, DuPont introduced a premium probiotic strain to support immune health, Bifidobacterium lactis Bl-04, also known by the brand name HOWARU Protect Adult. HOWARU Bl-04 is a robust strain that not only survives the conditions HOWARU (Cont'd. from p. 1) found in the gut, but also influences the secretion of important immune mole- cules. Those features of the strain have now been validated in clinical trials. One gold-standard clinical trial linked daily used of Bl-04 to a 27 percent reduction in the risk of common cold, as compared to placebo. The study suggest- ed supplementation with Bl-04 may save people from suffering one cold every year. That study, like others involving Bl- 04, also found the strain has a good safe- ty and tolerability profile (West et al. 2014). The evidence on safety and effec- tiveness of Bl-04 led primary care physi- cians to award the product the title of "doctor preferred probiotic for respirato- ry health." With consumers increasingly focused on their wellbeing, the availabil- ity of a strain that promotes a healthy immune response and helps maintain healthy respiratory function creates an opportunity for retailers to grow sales while supporting their customers' efforts to live healthier lives.
