Douglas Hoey has spent 20+ years working in and representing community pharmacies. Doug grew up in the pharmacy working at his family's pharmacy from junior high through completion of his pharmacy degree at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center. Doug went on to complete his Master's of Business Administration from Oklahoma City University. During the first five years of his career, he worked in community pharmacies providing traditional dispensing and counseling services as well as long term care consulting, home infusion, hospice care, and durable medical equipment. In 1996, Doug joined NCPA as Assistant Director Management and Student Affairs and in 2005 he became NCPA's first Chief Operating Officer reporting directly to the CEO. In April of 2011 the NCPA's Executive Committee appointed Doug as NCPA’s CEO.


We discuss with Doug his views on the proposed merger of Express Scripts and Medco, legislation designed to regulated the PBM industry that is pending in Congress, the current state of independent community pharmacies, NCPA efforts to make medication adherence a core competency, and continued plans to help members be more successful with front-end sales.
