Calling all FrameworkLTC Users! We are looking forward to another great conference this September 17-19 at Caesars Palace, Las Vegas.

 
 

We are putting the finishing touches on the action-packed agenda and it is a conference you will not want to miss! Attendees will experience more breakout sessions than ever before; here is a sneak peak at some of the session topics:

  • Best Practice breakout sessions co-presented by FrameworkLTC users and members of our Customer Success team will include hot topics such as perpetual inventory, unit dose composite, Sage, prospective billing, FrameworkECM, and FrameworkPOD!

  • Clinical breakout sessions will highlight upcoming regulations, like NCPDP SCRIPT 2017071, USP<800>, PDMP, and more, plus a legislative update from MHA's Michelle Templin, and an RxPertise session with our very own Jay Loeper!

  • Back by popular demand, our technical track will again cover database optimization, plus deployment strategies and two roundtable sessions where we'll be looking for your input!

  • Bring your questions and notes to a 45-minute one-on-one session with our Customer Success team, where we can train or consult on the functionality or topic of your choice!
