VPL is Heading to Orlando to Present at the NASP 2022 Annual Meeting & Expo

The Columbus-based healthcare software company will be attending the 10th anniversary celebration of the specialty pharmacy event to present a customer case study in collaboration with St. Luke’s at the innovation lab and join the panel on technology solutions in last mile logistics.

Columbus, OH, September 15, 2022 – This year’s National Association of Specialty Pharmacy (NASP) Annual Meeting & Expo celebrates the 10-year anniversary of specialty pharmacy’s premier event, and VPL, an industry leader in smart supply chain solutions for healthcare clients, is continuing to support their expansion into the pharmacy market by exhibiting their cloud-based pharmacy solutions at the event. NASP Annual Meeting & Expo 2022 will take place in Orlando, Florida at the Gaylord Palms Resort & Convention Center from September 19-22.

This past March, VPL announced the launch of their specialty pharmacy software solutions, VPL TrajectRx—a clinically minded prescription shipping, tracking and compliance software built for pharmacists, by pharmacists to ensure specialty medications are delivered cost-effectively and securely.

“We’re excited to bring our pharmacy solutions to this year’s NASP Annual Meeting & Expo for the first time ever,” says Eric McGlade, CEO and Co-Founder at VPL. “Amanda Awe, our Pharmacy Product Specialist, spent over 10 years as a clinical pharmacist before coming to VPL to help other pharmacists solve familiar problems with technology solutions. Her unique perspective helps us to continuously innovate VPL TrajectRx, making it as useful to our customers as it can possibly be.”

VPL is proud to be leading two presentations for the Technology Day Workshop on Monday, September 19 in the mezzanine coastal breakout room Suwannee 1.

The first session, titled “Innovation Lab #5 – VPL & St. Luke’s,” is from 12:00-12:30 p.m. and will be presented by Marc Choquette (St. Luke’s), Derrek Seif (VPL), and Amanda Awe, PharmD, RPh (VPL). In this presentation, VPL will present a case study with a pharmacy customer that will demonstrate real world results of VPL TrajectRx.

The second session, titled “The Role of Technology in Solving ‘The Last Mile’ Logistics,” is from 4:30-5:30 p.m. and will be presented by Sheila Arquette, RPh (NASP), Amanda Awe, PharmD (VPL), Tim Ramsey (US Pack Logistics), Kirk Nilson (Parcel Shield). This panel will describe how specialty pharmacies use technology to provide customized, convenient, and customer-centric last-mile solutions to accommodate patients’ needs, improve customer satisfaction, manage costs, and safeguard medication quality.

“This event will really help us show the industry what we can do to help pharmacies simplify their prescription shipping workflows.” says McGlade. “I think those who sit in on her presentations will really enjoy them because they’ll be getting perspective on pharmacy software from an actual pharmacist who played a big role in the development of it all.”

Attendees can stop by the VPL TrajectRx booth (#606) to chat with their team about specialty pharmacies can make the prescription shipping workflow more seamless than ever before, find out what giveaway prizes they have available, and see what tricks their booth-side magician has up his sleeves.
