DSN to present webinar on pharmacy provider regulations, data and verification
Pharmacy provider regulations continue to increase and, consequently, that means more scrutiny on information like Medicare and Medicaid provider enrollment and DEA registration. Having a process and system in place to maintain provider records, reduce compliance risk, and minimize payer reimbursement rejections will be absolutely critical for retail pharmacy stores and PBMs.
To talk more about the massive challenges and opportunities facing community pharmacy,
Drug Store News will host a special webinar Tuesday, June 23, at 12 p.m. EST, presented by Health Market Science, a LexisNexis company.
Dan Schofield, head of product management, for Health Market Science, will explore three critical areas of discussion:
· The important regulations impacting retail pharmacy and PBM at the state and federal levels
· The data necessary to manage the challenge of complying with these regulations
· Technology and solutions that automate compliance at the point of sale
A Q&A session will follow Schofield’s presentation.

“The biggest impact is the labor cost,” Jensen explained of the company's central fill offerings. “You're able to get labor costs below 50 cents per prescription which in comparison to [filling in store] provides an ROI in anywhere from 12 to 24 to 36 months, and then you continue to leverage it for an addition seven, eight, nine years.”
