Parata Supports Pharmacy Growth as Presenting Sponsor of 2013 Independent Pharmacy Business Growth Conference
DURHAM, N.C. --(Business Wire)--
Top independent pharmacists will come together this February with
Pharmacy Development Services (PDS) in order to explore strategies to
grow in a radically changing health care market. And where pharmacies
are growing you'll find Parata Systems, proud to be the presenting
sponsor of the 2013 Independent Pharmacy Business Growth Conference (www.pharmacyowners.com/conference/bgc13)
for the second year in a row.
This is the ninth annual Growth Conference hosted for independent
pharmacies by PDS, a consulting services company dedicated to
transforming independent pharmacy owners into extraordinary, progressive
entrepreneurs through knowledge, skills, strategies and bold ideas. For
15 years the PDS methodology has helped hundreds of motivated pharmacy
owners realize their full potential for growth and career satisfaction.
"Pharmacy is a tough business, especially for independents. PDS creates
an environment where pharmacists can get excited about their mission to
care for patients, become energized by peers who are pursuing innovative
strategies and engage with companies like ours that provide the
technology tools that free them to execute," Tom Rhoads, CEO of Parata
Systems said. "Parata was proud to sponsor last year's event, and we
look forward to again leading the conversation about how automation can
be the engine to drive innovative pharmacy care."
These two powerful industry partners have teamed up in order to equip
entrepreneurial pharmacists with the tools and support needed to succeed
in the emerging accountable care reimbursement models, and will
emphasize the importance of breaking out of routine business practices
in order to demonstrate the ability to impact outcomes through wellness
While Parata will showcase its entire suite of automation solutions at
the event, it will put a special sptlight on Parata PASS™ (Patient
Adherence Strip System) products. Parata PASS automatically packages
medications into a strip of unit- or multi-dose bags, organized the way
people take them: by date and time of day, which promotes adherence in
any setting-from long-term care to assisted living to at-home patients.
By differentiating themselves with PASS Pack, pharmacies can help impact
health outcomes and cost of care, especially with their chronic
patients, while freeing labor for other business services.
"We're pleased to welcome Parata back to our Growth Conference this
year," said Dan Benamoz, CEO and founder of PDS. "Thanks to their
generous support, we're able to continue providing independent
pharmacists with valuable tools that allow them to remain competitive in
our ever-changing industry."
The Independent Pharmacy Business Growth Conference is the single
largest gathering of high-performance pharmacy owners. The 2013 event
will be held Feb. 21-23 at the Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center
in Orlando, Fla. For more information or to register for the conference,
