David Mayper Executive Director PFOA

 These are busy and exciting times for PFOA. We have started a new ABC contract extension, AAP has added to their offerings and there are plenty more opportunities. We have annual meetings coming up at both the Cardinal RBC and ABC’s Thoughtspot.

 

Our ABC deal was completed and put into effect May 1. By far this is our best overall deal with ABC. We have been working with ABC to first appropriately implement the program with existing members and identifying opportunities for growth in this program. AAP introduced an additional compliance offering this month allowing some of our members the opportunity of improving their Cardinal purchase position. We are reviewing the program and will bring it to the membership where appropriate.

 

We were offered some private training from Medispan exposing some of our members to the program and allowing us to improve how we use this program to help our membership.

 

I traveled to Southern California to work with Mark Holden. This allowed me an opportunity to meet with a number of our members and business partners.

 

Ronda Hubbard and Nancy Tataronis attended ECRM’s pharmacy technology meeting in Tampa. They met with a lot of vendors, reviewing a number of services and technology solutions over a three day period. They will be reviewing and taking the best of what they saw to our vendor committee for review.
