Elevating CVS Pharmacy to a Health Care Destination
The new CVS Health model will set a bold course to transform health care and the consumer experience in America.
One of the foundational pieces of this goal is HealthHUB, a new community-based store concept focused on helping customers get well — and stay well — by offering a broader range of health care services, wellness products, trusted advice, and personalized care with the ease of walking right into a local CVS Pharmacy.
Acting as the connection point inside the HealthHUB is a Care Concierge, who will engage and educate customers, helping them navigate in-store services and events and connect them to in-store providers. For customers who want to manage care from the palm of their hand, HealthHUB locations will provide access to digitally enabled health and wellness apps, connected health monitors and smart devices, and technology-enhanced weight management programs. HealthHUB will also serve as living, learning “labs” using a "test-and-learn" approach that will enable us to explore new clinical and social services, and evolve them as we gather real-time insights and feedback from customers and patient before implementing a scaled roll-out.
The HealthHUB locations at CVS Pharmacy stores will:
- Provide health care services in a more convenient, accessible, and customer-focused manner
- Be the testing ground for new pilot programs and service offerings
- Help us identify the solutions that are the most effective and scalable, and roll them out more broadly
New Store Format
HealthHUB locations will combine the best of today’s CVS Pharmacy with the future of accessible, low-cost health services and offer more health services and trusted support.
The new format will have over 20 percent dedicated to health services. This includes 20 new wellness categories from self-care to chronic care, and 1000s of new items including additional durable medical equipment and supplies, and new product and service combinations for sleep apnea and asthma.
