9:45 – 10:15 Practical AI in the Pharmacist Workflow

David Sellars, Principal, Product Innovations, DrFirst

Artificial intelligence (AI) isn’t just a buzzword. It’s no longer a false promise. Today there are pharmacies in the United States and Canada using practical, powerful AI to automate data entry workflows. AI-augmented workflows are faster and safer. In this session, David will show how AI is used in retail pharmacy workflows to manage free text allergies, sigs, and advanced drug matching, and even to convert faxes into retail pharmacy orders in real time.

10:15 – 10:30 Break

10:30 – 11:00 DSCSA Compliance Requirements Regulatory and Industry Status Report

Randy Hoggle, B.Pharm., D.Ph., M.B.A., Managing Director, Advasur

Randy’s presentation will bring you up to date on the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA). He will cover topics including: the current DSCSA federal regulatory compliance enforced requirements status, as well as the remaining and additional requirements status; supply chain capabilities and authorized trading partner (ATP) remaining issues to address; supply chain planned capabilities to meet these subsequently released/policed requirements and the resulting effort required by type of ATP; and residual issues and the regulatory, staffing, and financial impact on the ATP community to date and over the next three to five years.

11:00 – 11:30 Opportunities for Pharmacy Practice Transformation and Creating an IMPACT in Population Health

Ben Bluml, B.S.Pharm., Executive Director and SVP, Research and Innovation, APhA Foundation

Ben will discuss the APhA Foundation’s portfolio of active research and innovation initiatives focused on patient-centered, team-based care that includes pharmacists. Two of these active initiatives are credentialing and compensating pharmacists just like their physician colleagues on the healthcare team. Creating new opportunities for pharmacist service delivery payments that enable pharmacists to address population health needs and social determinants of health (SDOH) are hallmarks of several others. Most interestingly, though, will be details about the dedicated work in diabetes prevention that continues under the APhA Foundation’s CDC-recognized Umbrella Hub Arrangement (UHA) status that allows pharmacists to be compensated for providing Medicare National Diabetes Prevention Program (National DPP) services.

11:30 – 11:45 Break

Kevin will cover how ASAP worked with multiple stakeholders, including vendors and PDMP administrators, to develop the most significant upgrade to the standards in years.

9:15 – 9:45 What’s Driving Healthcare Team Evolution

9:45 – 10:15 Error-free Data: Yes, Please!

Brandi Van Patton, Pharm.D., Chief Clinical Officer, LogiCoy

Data quality is at the heart of data collection. Knowing data is complete and error-free can enhance patient care. However, there are many components to data quality that can be difficult to meet. Brandi will address the solutions that are needed to assist healthcare providers to not only comply with standards, but meet a high level of data quality as well.

10:15 – 10:30 Break

10:30 – 11:00 Medicare Payments and Beneficiary Smoothing: What Pharmacies Need to Know

Ann Johnson, President, Pharmacy Healthcare Solutions

Ann will present an overview of the Inflation Reduction Act’s “price smoothing” provision, which is anticipated to begin in 2025. She will cover implications for patients, payers, and pharmacies, focusing on the software system changes necessary to implement this.

11:00 – 11:30 340B Trends and Issues: Is It Time for Reform?

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

The federal 340B drug pricing program requires manufacturers to extend lower, discounted prices for outpatient drugs to eligible providers, called “covered entities,” in order to have their products covered under Medicaid and the Medicare Part B programs. The covered entities that receive the 340B discounts for covered outpatient drugs are providers who care for patients who are underinsured and uninsured, or otherwise vulnerable. The goal was “to stretch scarce federal resources as far as possible, reaching more eligible patients and providing more comprehensive services.”

Since it was created, the list of eligible providers has expanded, the number of providers participating in the program has increased, and the total dollars of discounted drugs purchased through the 340B program has grown. There are currently concerns about provider compliance with the 340B program’s rules, and whether there is enough oversight of participants to address duplicate discounts or discounted products going to patients who are not eligible.

In this session, Marsha will bring you the latest trends in 340B and outline the major issues that have been raised. She will also talk about the latest efforts at reforming the program.


“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.”
