    Cheryl Pegus: CMO of Walgreens

    We can agree more than disagree.

    It depends on how you define managed care, most if not all heath plans have a
    specialty component that looks at the outliers.

    As for generic vs name brand this is a section that will soon be exposed to a critical eye going forward. Not that the impact will move the needle much but it will be a factor in drug selection/negotiation.

    As for the governments managed care programs they are not that advanced in understanding what cost/outcome objectives could be achieved with a seamless system with competition of course.
    And I agree with you on selection criteria it is not like when a new drug or product goes into clinical trials. I think you understand what I mean.

    This is a open field in generating the cost/outcome that has yet to be integrated by CVS and walgreens.
    From a business perspective leverage is going to be a Key point in profitability from the data mining that will take place. I also don't disagree with you of where Walgreen's has lost a lot time.
    I am not even sure if they get it.. or the profit value of this.


    Good luck cmxgen in your investing.
