Independent Pharmacy Cooperative Adds Hamacher Resource Group’s Rx Track-and-Trace Compliance Service to its Contract Advantage Plus Partner Offering

Waukesha, Wisconsin, April 30, 2019 – Hamacher Resource Group, Inc. (HRG) and its Rx Track-and-Trace Compliance Service (RTTCS) has been added to the Contract Advantage Plus (CAP) program of Independent Pharmacy Cooperative (IPC). CAP is a program that includes outside vendors IPC has partnered with to better serve their pharmacy members. As a CAP partner, HRG will provide IPC members with preferred rates for RTTCS.

IPC looks for quality programs and services to add to CAP that will help independent pharmacies remain competitive and improve their overall business operations. HRG will be attending IPC’s Independent Pharmacy Conference this week and will also be introducing RTTCS as part of IPC’s exhibit area during McKesson’s IdeaShare event in June.

“Our members are recognizing the significance of having a reliable track-and-trace solution in place to protect their pharmacy,” said Dean Slaugenhoup, vice president of purchasing and contracts at IPC. “HRG’s roots in independent pharmacy and longevity in the segment makes them a natural partner and a terrific option for our members.”

Tom Boyer, director of national accounts and member of the HRG owners group, stated, “We’re delighted to be accepted into the CAP program and work with our Wisconsin neighbor, IPC, to offer independent pharmacies a proven solution to meet the requirements of DSCSA. We’re looking forward to serving their member pharmacies that purchase prescriptions from more than one supplier, and relieving them of the burden of tracking and tracing prescription medication, and securely storing that information for the required six years.”
