Ron Lanton - talks with Dr. Sharon Flank about InfraTrac:
Drug Counterfeit Prevention Technology: InfraTrac
Brand owners need effective ways to protect their products against counterfeiting. InfraTrac chemically tags products and packaging so they can be quickly and easily authenticated in the field, without disclosing the secrets of the coding scheme.
InfraTrac’s principal competition comes from physical tags (RFID and EPC) and special inks, and tends to be more expensive or less secure... or both.
InfraTrac applications go beyond pharmaceuticals, to any product that needs tracking and anti-counterfeiting measures. Cosmetics, plastics, wine, even paint can use InfraTrac’s technology, so you can tell the fakes from the real thing.

We interview David Pope – the Chief of Innovation of Creative Pharmacist.
Creative Pharmacist was born out of an idea originating in 2009 between two longtime friends. They saw that there was a perfect 'marriage' to be found between patients living with chronic disease and their neighborhood community pharmacist. By equipping local pharmacist with the right tools in a simple way, they developed turnkey methods and solutions, empowering pharmacists to improve patient outcomes. Today, Creative Pharmacist materials are utilized in communities in the US and around the globe in over 1000 communities every month.

We interview Jason Wallace - Pharmacy owner & President of Pharmacists United for Truth and Transparency
Aetna Medicare Part D Drug Plans Plagued with Glitches
"In light of this disruption to beneficiaries and pharmacies, Aetna should honor the prescriptions filled at the plan's 'non-network' pharmacies that were inaccurately reported to be in-network," Hoey added. "Aetna's purported solution to require low-income subsidy beneficiaries to pay the full drug cost, and apply for a one-time reimbursement from the insurance company, is impractical and unacceptable."
