Federally-Qualified Health Center Contract Pharmacies
FQHC Contract Pharmacy Benefits

Maxor Contract Pharmacy Management Components
Maxor offers 340B audit compliance services that can greatly increase the benefits of your relationship with a contract pharmacy.
FQHC Contract Pharmacy Challenges
Operational challenges involve the detailed process of how your review method incorporates patient and drug data to determine eligibility and track 340B drug usage. Automating the review of the 340B entity’s data between different locations puts an entity at great risk of oversight. Strict, tested methods must be used to ensure compliance.
Technology and Information can create a great deal of challenge for pharmacies. Contract Pharmacy data and health center data do not exist in the same location, nor are they integrated in any way. A Contract Pharmacy is not “owned” by the health center. Therefore, the documents and records are not always readily available to the entity that is responsible for them.
Working with an entirely separate entity can cause otherwise simple assessments to become time-consuming, complex, and difficult. Implementing Maxor information and technology through The Maxor 340B Solution to guide the process can simplify matters and relieve a great deal of stress and work from your entity.
