Parata Turns Values Into Action
DURHAM, NC. – May 17, 2018 – Parata Systems, the leading pharmacy technology provider, announces their Bronze Level Business Partnership with the non-profit advocacy organization, Senior Care Pharmacy Coalition (SCPC). Parata’s decision solidifies their commitment to elevate the role of the pharmacy in healthcare and their promise to provide service and technology Parata’s customers count on.
For Parata, SCPC membership provides the opportunity to reinvest profits into the greater good of the long-term care (LTC) pharmacy space and contributes to Parata’s ongoing commitment to listen to and address their customers’ concerns.
“Our customers introduced us to the idea of a partnership with SCPC,” said Mark Longley, Parata’s EVP, Sales and Business Development. “We have an obligation to stay informed about issues in LTC and help any way we can. Our research proved this to be an easy decision to make. It’s a win for all involved.”
SCPC’s member companies own and operate around 350 LTC pharmacies across the US, serving about 750,000 patients in skilled nursing and assisted living facilities each day. Pharmacies serving these populations have their own challenges Parata’s technology aims to solve. Parata’s sponsorship underscores the company’s support for LTC pharmacies and the unique challenges the industry faces.
“Parata exists because we know empowering pharmacists helps patients experience better outcomes,” said Parata CEO DJ Dougherty. “Partnering with an industry advocate like SCPC helps us give our customers a voice, empowering them to do what’s right for the pharmacy and the patient. We think of it as another way to serve our community.”
As a Bronze Business Partner, Parata will participate in the SCPC Annual Meeting and Business Partners Summit Meeting in July of this year.
