More than 400 pharmacy owners, managers, technicians, and exhibitors flocked to the Cox Convention Center in downtown Oklahoma City for the 2017 Computer-Rx Idea Exchange held in March.
The purpose of the show, according to their CEO Lauren Warkentine, is to ensure Computer-Rx users get the most from their Computer-Rx products and services. The show featured more than 50 classes, some of which were eligible for continuing education credit. CE speakers consisted of well-established industry experts, such as Troy Trygstad, executive director of the Community Pharmacy Enhanced Services Network, who led a session on navigating payment reform. The majority of classes were taught by Computer-Rx managers with specific product expertise.
The keynote address was delivered by motivational speaker Heath Slawner of Best Practices Learning Solutions. During his luncheon presentation, Slawner shared practical tips for building effective teams in any organization. Central to his remarks was the concept known as the Golden Circle, first outlined by marketing icon Simon Sinek. In this model, Slawner says Sinek describes the importance of team members first understanding the “why” of a business process — and then, he says, they will perform better on the how and when.
The show also featured an exhibit hall with 50 companies telling attendees about their products, programs, and services.
Next year’s Idea Exchange will be held in Oklahoma City, April 6 to 7.
