Before using this technology, Staywell staff would spend 10-15 minutes on each drug to identify an alternative.

The Compliance Team
Booth #2841

During the COVID pandemic, The Compliance Team (TCT) announced its first certification program, Pharmacy Testing Certification, to address the increased testing services that pharmacies were offering. 

Since then, TCT introduced additional certification programs and renamed Pharmacy Testing Certification to POC (Point-of-Care) Testing Certification. The program is the first of its kind in the healthcare industry and is derived from The Compliance Team’s long-standing pharmacy quality standards for accreditation. POC Testing Certification provides pharmacies with the education and tools necessary to achieve certification. 

Post-pandemic, the POC Testing Certification has garnered more interest due to the expanded role of pharmacies as a go-to for disease testing, such as COVID, flu, strep and A1C. If pharmacies are not already doing testing, this program offers them new revenue opportunities.  As a certified testing facility, they can assure their customers, patients, payers, and employees that their testing quality has been validated by a nationally recognized third-party accreditation organization.
