10:30 - 11:00 • State Legislative Update
Scott Pace, Pharm.D, J.D., Partner, Impact Management Group
Scott will provide a look at the key pharmacy-focused legislation that will be moving through the states in 2021.

11:05 - 11:35 • What’s Behind the Lack of Success for Pharmacists Clinical Services?
Melissa Krause, Pharm.D., Vice President, Pharmacy Healthcare Solutions
What is the real root cause that has prevented pharmacist clinical services from success in the marketplace? This presentation will focus on evaluating various clinical services and determine whether they provide hard or soft dollar savings. Spoiler alert: clinical services, for the most part, generate soft dollar savings. The question then becomes what market segment should be willing to pay for soft dollar savings? These include organizations at financial risk for the medical and pharmacy spend. Melissa will evaluate current market initiatives through this lens including chronic care management services and CPESN.

11:40 - 12:10 • Current And Future Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs And How They Benefit Independent Pharmacy
Brian Eidex, General Manager, Pharmacy, Appriss Health
Brian will discuss the current usage of the PDMP programs, trends in legislation and state activity, and provide an overview of current infrastructure of the programs. He will also cover what the future holds for the next wave of PDMP functionality and how this new functionality, as well as current programs, can benefit the independent pharmacy.


“As always, I enjoy the intimate nature of ASAP conferences. The content is always relevant and the networking opportunity is greatly appreciated.”

“ASAP continues to be the best conference to discuss business opportunities between vendors. Other shows require vendors to focus on customers, which prevents meaningful discussions.”

“Love the concise overview of many relevant topics by great speakers.” “The most valuable conference I’ve attended because the topics were great.”
