NCPA aims to encourage independent pharmacies to adopt HIT


ALEXANDRIA, Va. An organization representing the country’s independent pharmacies will collaborate to encourage the adoption of health information technology.

The National Community Pharmacists Association said a conference at Alexandria, Va.’s Lorien Hotel Thursday was designed to ensure that community pharmacies are “working collaboratively” with partners to adopt HIT and take advantage of incentive programs, such as government stimulus money.


“Community pharmacies are committed to offering the best patient care possible, which means constantly adapting to the latest technology breakthroughs to optimize health care,” NCPA CEO and EVP Bruce Roberts said. “We recognize that health IT is part of that future, which is why we have launched technology-based products like Surescripts and Mirixa this decade.”
