Mar 29, 2016: Birmingham, Ala. – PharmaPoint is excited to welcome Pam Herring, RN, as the new Director of Clinical Services. Pam has more than 25 years of experience in the healthcare arena, and will implement, monitor and champion clinical programs, such as OnePoint Medication Synchronization, in existing and new pharmacy locations as they are opened.
“We got better today,” says Mike Plaia, PharmaPoint CEO. “As our organization grows, we continually have to add focus and accountability around key areas in the company. Pam has an extensive background in chronic care/disease state management programs, with the foundation of her clinical background in critical care. This skillset will serve existing and future clients well as we continue to see an emphasis on CMS penalties due to high readmission rates.”
In her new role, Herring will also complete clinical assessments in hospitals as it relates to work flow of admissions and discharge processes, and also work with our pharmacies to help them continue to drive better medication adherence and outcomes.
“I am thrilled about my new role with PharmaPoint,” says Herring. “The ability to help drive better patient care is rewarding on both a personal and professional level. PharmaPoint has a solid business model for pharmacy management and a cutting edge technology platform, comparable to nothing I’ve seen in the marketplace.”
Prior to joining the PharmaPoint team, Pam served as the Director of Account Management at Barnes Healthcare Services where she provided education to discharge planners, social workers, case managers and physicians on chronic care/disease state management programs. Pam has also worked in various roles with other industry leading names in the healthcare market such as Olympus, Omnicare and Coram.
“For any successful organization, growth and change go hand-in-hand,” says Plaia. “It is an exciting time to be a member of our team, and I look forward to continuing to execute our business plan for optimal success.”
