Networking for High-Performance Pharmacies

Wednesday, October 22
10am - 4pm
Austin Hilton, Salon B, 4th Floor
Austin, Texas

The networks of tomorrow are forming today. Medicare, Medicaid and private payers are looking for pharmacies that meet new quality standards and achieve demonstrated results. NCPA has gathered a "Who's Who" of payers and pharmacies who are rethinking pharmacy and changing the landscape. This post-convention program is your opportunity to interact directly with these leaders and prepare your pharmacy for what's coming.

If your pharmacy is actively engaged in providing the patient care services in demand from health systems and payers, or you want it to become active, you will want to register and attend a new post-convention program, "Networking for High-Performance Pharmacies".
