Development of the latest version of the ASAP Implementation Guide for Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs has been underway through 2022.

10:15 – 10:30 Break

10:30 – 11:00 Right Intelligence, Right Patient, Right Time

Natalie Browning, VP, Client Realtions, Bamboo Health

There’s no dispute that a comprehensive and correct patient history is critical for more informed prescribing and dispensing. There’s also no debate that linking patient records across disparate systems is a complex endeavor that requires expertise in data quality assurance.
More than 43 states and territories rely on Bamboo Health — and its turnkey EHR/PMS integration — to power their prescription drug monitoring programs and ensure patient records are matched appropriately. Collectively, these clients conduct almost 6 billion API searches every year. That’s a lot of data — and a lot of opportunity for unintentional mistakes to creep into it.
But, among more than 12 million PDMP search requests processed daily on more than 2.6 billion records through Bamboo Health solutions, an analysis found just 0.03% of the 176 million patient record groups have required manual changes.
Natalie will explain how the rigor Bamboo Health deploys to ensure states and territories provide safer and more informed prescribing and dispensing. Specifically, Natalie will detail how Bamboo Health:

  • Filters and cleans PDMP data to correct typos, standardize capitalization and spacing, and rectify address formatting
  • Assigns multiple edges to records from unique combinations of patient identifiers and uses that data to appropriately link records.

11:00 – 11:30 DSCSA Supply Chain Compliance Update

Randy Hoggle, B.Pharm., Dr.P.H., M.B.A., Managing Director, Advasur, LLC

Brad Kile, Ph.D., President, Dumbarton Group, LLC

In the wake of the 2022 elections, a new Congress convenes in January 2023 to consider a variety of legislative proposals that will impact pharmacies and the patients they serve. This program will detail critical initiatives that are moving through the legislative process in Congress and what to expect for 2023.

Participants will learn what to expect from Congress this year and how to navigate newly implemented changes.

In particular, she will address what pharmacies and pharmacy software vendors need to tackle for their operations, including risk assessment, costs, staged implementations and multiple overlapping timelines to prepare for the proposed 12-digit NDC.

10:15 – 10:30 Break

10:30 – 11:00 Social Determinants of Health: The What, Whys and Ways Ahead

Marsha Millonig, M.B.A., B.Pharm., President and CEO , Catalyst Enterprises, LLC

Are you seeing more headlines about social determinants of health? Do you wonder what they are and why they are receiving so much attention? Social determinants of health (SDOH) are conditions in the places where people live, learn, work, and play that affect a wide range of health risks and outcomes. In this session, Marsha will discuss the five major areas that make up the social determinants of health and how they impact a person’s health and well-being. You’ll also hear about the latest ways companies and organizations are addressing SDOHs, including new approaches and innovations at both pharmacies and pharmacy technology vendors. You’ll walk away with one or more ideas that can positively impact SDOHs for your company and its stakeholders!


“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.”
