Innovation Provides Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experience to Binghamton Univ. SOPPS 

Mar 2017

Innovation, makers of PharmASSIST® pharmacy automation solutions, today announced the company will provide Advanced Pharmacy Practice Experience (APPE) to students enrolled in the Binghamton University School of Pharmacy & Pharmaceutical Sciences (SOPPS), starting with the fall class of 2017.

“We’re honored to become an advanced pharmacy practice site and to offer Binghamton University pharmacy students the opportunity to learn about the many complexities of today’s ever-evolving pharmacy operations. This is a unique APPE offering for students that truly differentiates Binghamton University SOPPS from schools of pharmacy around the country,” said Phil Samples, PharmD, VP, professional and government service at Innovation and a member of the new school’s Dean’s Advisory Council. “We’re looking forward to sharing our in-depth knowledge and experiences with BU students, and we’re dedicated to helping them prepare for their careers in pharmacy and for improving patient outcomes,” he added.

“By exposing our prospective pharmacists to the future of pharmacy, our students will be both well versed in the various technological advancements in today’s pharmacies, and be immersed in problem-solving methodology that can be applied to critically assessing patients,” said Angela Riley, PharmD, CGP, assistant dean, experiential education at Binghamton University.

BU students that select this elective rotation will spend six weeks working side-by-side with Innovation senior team members with a specific focus on learning effective management and leadership skills in an outpatient pharmacy operations environment. In addition, students will learn proven best practice tools and techniques to analyze, interpret, model, simulate, and predict operational performance under relevant workload, workflow, and process options. Lastly, Innovation will teach students about Lean Six Sigma and how to apply the methodology to pharmacy operations.

“Innovation has created strong relationships with various schools from Binghamton University to develop Pharmacy Intelligence to improve outcomes in pharmacy practice. The next best step is to create a strong relationship with the SOPPS, as these students will be the practitioners implementing and managing such technological advancement. I look forward to growing with Innovation,” said Ms. Riley.

Binghamton University’s School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences will begin on BU’s campus in August 2017, and will eventually relocate to a newly constructed building on a new, 8-acre health sciences campus in Johnson City. The new building is expected to open in 2018.
