CONFERENCE CIRCUIT May/June 2013
2013 QS/1 Customer Conference
QS/1’s annual Customer Conference, held in Asheville, N.C., once again featured three days of speakers, updates on system enhancements, and plenty of time in the technology expo, as well as a tour of the Vanderbilt’s Biltmore Estate. Highlights of the program included an update on the impact of the Affordable Care Act and HIPAA on pharmacy, how to give your pharmacy a financial physical; a look at the social media trends that affect pharmacy; and surviving pharmacy audits. QS/1 staff gave updates on the enhancements to the variety of services offered by the company, including POS, IVR, Web services, and multisite management. Breakout sessions were held for SystemOne and PrimeCare customers. In the technology expo, customers kept QS/1 staff busy with detailed questions, and there was plenty of networking as pharmacists learned what works in different pharmacy environments. Thirty vendor partners were on hand to give more information about services available, including the new e-prescribing for controlled substances from Surescripts through NRx, and CardFinder from Emdeon. Next year’s conference is May 14–17 in Nashville, Tenn.
