Improve Your Bottom Line with LTC Pharmacy Services
NCPA is conducting 3 Community Aging, Assisted Living, and Long-Term Care (CAALLTC) programs this year. The first is April 24-26 in Richmond, Virginia.
 
The popular CAALLTC course differentiates itself by offering participants practical business and marketing tools to advance long-term care (LTC) pharmacy services in their communities. Surveyed participants indicated that within 12 months of attending the course, they were providing new prescription services to 25 to 400 new patients in adult day care, assisted living, or nursing facilities. They also reported a 1% to 3% increase in profits annually. The 2009 sponsor breakout sessions will challenge LTC exhibitors to detail how their products distinguish purchasers from the competition and increase profits. Click here to register.
