Parata is Presenting Sponsor of the 2015 Independent Pharmacy Business Growth Conference

DURHAM, N.C. (Feb. 11, 2015) — Parata Systems, a leading provider of pharmacy technology solutions that support business growth, better health outcomes and lower medical costs, will be a presenting sponsor of the 2015 Independent Pharmacy Business Growth Conference, hosted by Pharmacy Development Services (PDS), February 18 – 21 in Orlando, Florida. This is Parata’s fourth year exhibiting and its second year as Presenting Sponsor.

At the conference, Parata will feature active demonstrations of Parata Max® high-speed automated dispenser and the Parata PASS solution suite. Parata Max automates up to 60 percent of a pharmacy’s prescription volume, so pharmacists are free to provide hands-on patient care and focus on growing their businesses. Parata PASS™ packagers automate the preparation of adherence packaging, organizing medications by day and time of dose in clear plastic pouches — eliminating the need for cumbersome medication planners and bulky blister packs. The Parata PASS Safe Loader™ system uses light-to-fill technology, making it easy for pharmacies to prepare PASS special tablet trays more quickly and accurately.

“We look forward to the Independent Pharmacy Business Growth Conference each year,” said Tom Rhoads, Parata’s chief executive officer. “But we’re especially excited to kick off 2015 with this group of progressive, growth-oriented pharmacists. As a company, Parata is now in its strongest financial position ever serving thousands of customers across the US, Canada and around the world. We are entering our 14th year of serving pharmacies and we are bringing renewed energy and focus to challenges in the independent pharmacy market by delivering tools and solutions that will impact pharmacies’ bottom lines.”

Mark Longley, vice president of sales at Parata, will help start off the conference with a keynote presentation entitled “Go Anywhere — As Long As It’s Forward” and encourage pharmacy leaders to continue driving the future of their profession — and the success of their businesses.

During the conference, Parata will convene an exclusive breakfast discussion, providing a select group of customers the opportunity to share best practices with other leading pharmacists. Parata will also host a private reception for potential and current customers.

“In addition to connecting like-minded pharmacists to share successes and strategies, these events give us an opportunity to better understand our customers’ current challenges and learn how we can continue supporting their future,” said Longley.
