About this Website

I created this website to help community pharmacists be able to understand the legal and third-party compliance issues facing their practice, to provide them the tools to improve efficiency and quality, and to help them be able to return to patient care. I'm building several areas on this website:

                   1. The Blog: A wide variety of compliance and quality topics, including:

                                              - Common misses in the pharmacy

                                                 Third-party topics to help understand audits and contracts

                                              - Resources on building new models of practicing pharmacy

                                                            .....And more

                  2. Forms and tools: In most of the pharmacies I have practiced in I have needed to create the                             same types of forms, policies, and procedures. It is time-consuming to create an easy-to-use,                         visually appealing form yet was a frequent point of frustration for me. I am creating them so                           you don't have to.

                  3. Helpful Links: Little-known gems on the internet with amazing resources relevant to the                                  community pharmacy.
