The pharmaceutical supply chain has long been ripe for disruption and who better to lead the way than Mark Cuban, a “shark” who has never shied away from a challenge.

In this episode of our podcast, we sit down with Mark to discuss his vision to “end ridiculous drug prices” and improve every aspect of the pharmacy experience. And while still a young company, the Mark Cuban Cost Plus Drug Company has already evolved to address more of the pressing health care challenges facing employers and consumers alike.
