In addition to accredited CE sessions, attendees can learn strategies to improve patient care and maximize pharmacy performance through roundtable discussions, workshops and hands-on demonstrations.
Ahead of the Center of Medicaid and Medicare Services final rule changes anticipated to affect the 2024 plan year, Health Mart Atlas will host a special session to help pharmacies prepare to manage these changes, including the potential for cash flow implications.
