You asked – and we delivered! STACK’s industry-leading curated Information Management Platform has been fully re-developed to allow for greater flexibility and accessibility, while boasting an expanded scope through a web-based platform.  Building upon the success of the STACK curated cloud, the web-based platform now aligns resources in a secure, intuitive way.  STACK’s web offering is the go-to solution for managing risk, operational activities, education, and so much more within the healthcare industry.

“From the time we first introduced STACK in the fall of 2019, we’ve had numerous requests about making the platform available via the web,” said Jonathan Ogurchak, PharmD, CSP, CEO of STACK.  “With customer feedback driving the majority of our development, we’re excited to launch this extremely flexible, industry-aligning platform and continue our tremendous growth!”

STACK’s innovative, multi-tiered approach to managing healthcare information simplifies alignment of shared resources. No matter what stakeholders are in your ecosystem, from pharmacies and professional associations to credentialing platforms and higher education institutions, your STACK will be customized based on you, the user.  Track all your organization’s professional activities across the entire scope of your business using a mobile-responsive, system-agnostic approach.

Introducing: STACK Starter Tier

From Jonathan Ogurchak, PharmD, CSP – STACK CEO & Co-Founder

I’m immediately launching a new starter tier for STACK – a way for pharmacies that are facing 2020’s budget, timing, and resource challenges, to put a platform like STACK in their hands to empower your pharmacies to stay on top of the “outside of the dispense” areas that aren’t going away in the face of those challenges.

2020 has been tough on everyone, especially pharmacy owners.  As frontline workers, you’re expected to put yourselves in the trenches to make sure that patients are cared for, all while ensuring that the pharmacy keeps working like a well-oiled machine.  Having been a specialty pharmacy owner myself – trust me, I know the challenges you’re facing.

On top of that, you’re gearing up for a potentially tough winter – balancing the needs of employees, their families, and all of the changes that might need to take place (again) related to stay-at-home type restrictions.  Budgets have been frozen, too, making it challenging to put all of the resources in place that would truly benefit those employees. 

I’ve been talking with pharmacies on a daily basis that voice these same concerns – and realized that in times like these, we need to help support as best as we’re able.

This starter tier goes into effect today, and will remain in effect until later this spring.  We’ve expanded our availability as well, so we can look to implement your team in as little as 5 business days.  It’s the least that we can to do try to help you keep heads above water in the face of everything you’re handling right now. 

If you’d like to take a peek at what STACK has to offer, please feel free to reach back out to me directly, or schedule a time for a demo here.  

Wishing you, your families, and your teams nothing but the best,

Jonathan

STACK – Connecting a Complex Pharmacy Ecosystem

A Message from our CEO – Jonathan Ogurchak

There’s been so much new coming out of STACK over the last several weeks – I felt like it would be a good time to bring it all together and highlight how we’ve been looking around every corner to anticipate the needs of our clients. We’ve realized that even though we can keep building great products, we can get to more complete solutions – faster – by seeking out the best of the best and building meaningful partnerships. By building solutions TOGETHER, we’ve anticipated ways to connect our clients with exactly what they’re looking for – and at discounts that you wouldn’t be able to get except for being a STACK client.  Here are those that we’ve announced recently:

Accreditation Support – Look no further than the team at StranzCrossley, Inc.  We recognize their expertise when it comes to preparedness, management, and maintenance of what’s needed for accreditation programs – so we built a relationship there.  They are our preferred Accreditation Support Partner, and can work with pharmacies to set up their operations to match exactly what’s needed to delivery quality

Compliance Education – Sure, we can help to organize your trainings..but what happens if you don’t have the necessary content to include IN those trainings?  Enter CEimpact – a leader in professional healthcare education.  They have a suite of over 15 programs that pharmacies need (and payors/accreditors are looking for) that now align within STACK to provide you exactly what you need.  Assign it to your employees, track it through to completion, just like you would your other STACK tasks.

Comprehensive Law Database – Another question we’d hear was “well, you can organize licenses, but do you provide information about changes to pharmacy law state-by-state?”  We didn’t – but now we’ve partnered with Bula Intelligence to bring their Comprehensive Law Database right to you.  Stay on top of changes at the state level, and match that with the ongoing license management you’ve come to love within STACK.

Screenings, Verifications, Etc – You’re expected to complete background checks, primary source license verification, and much, much more for your employees already – why not integrate that into a single source of truth like STACK?  Accurate Background does all of that – and aligns with the STACK framework to bring it all together. 

 

To quote Chubbs Peterson (or the Carpenters…either way) – WE’VE ONLY JUST BEGUN.  As we expand our universe to encapsulate everything you need to manage your professional life, we’ll continue to find partners like those I just mentioned – ones that both provide the meaningful service AND approach business in a likeminded way – to round out and improve the STACK experience.  It’s based on your feedback and our desires to bring the best platform to the marketplace that’s going to get us there.

STACK Integrates with Accurate for Comprehensive 3rd Party Checks 

November 10, 2020

STACK today announces that it has finalized an agreement with Accurate to integrate comprehensive background screening into their pharmacy information management platform.  This serves as an added benefit to STACK clients, allowing them to send out for required services such a drug testing, criminal background checks, professional license primary source verification, and much more.

Through this relationship, STACK clients will have the ability to utilize Accurate’s comprehensive screening services directly from their STACK platform, complementing the personnel file management capabilities that are already a component of the STACK infrastructure.  All services have been negotiated to be offered at a discount for STACK clients, helping to centralize and organize these mission critical business areas, along with providing connectivity to Accurate.

“We’re continuing to revisit the comprehensive professional experience for our clients, and finding ways to fill in the necessary gaps that companies need,” said Jonathan Ogurchak, PharmD, CSP, Co-Founder & CEO of STACK.  “Our relationship with Accurate does just that – providing primary source verification, background checks, drug screens, and other areas of the required professional experience and delivers it directly through STACK.”

STACK customers can begin to take advantage of discounts and integrations as of today.

365 Days of Growth

We’ve had lots of new followers here at STACK over the last several months, so with hitting our year install milestone AND 500th LinkedIn follower today, we wanted to share a longer post to reiterate why we’re doing what we’re doing:

STACK is the ONLY healthcare professional information management platform. Designed by pharmacists and health tech professionals, we were tired of hearing frustrations related to day-to-day management of what should be simple pharmacy operational tasks. However, administrative burden associated with managing areas “outside of the dispense” continued to increase costs to the business, taking away very critical dollars that could be spent on patient-facing care.

More importantly, however, those “outside of the dispense” areas are faced by every organization. Yet, there wasn’t a simple, intuitive solution that brought all of these areas together in one place. Instead, you’re managing it in spreadsheets, Windows file folders, SharePoint, or maybe even the good old fashioned paper file folder. Every organization was left to their own devices to come up with a creative solution to tackle these mission critical aspects. 

Enter STACK. A carefully a combination of carefully curated content, along with a new approach to organizing, assigning, following up, and proving every aspect of compliance associated with good business practices.  We’ve built ways to centralize and organize all of the aspects of your organization, with ways to empower you and your teams to work more effectively, and ultimately eliminate risk.

We’ve built meaningful partnerships with likeminded organizations who help to augment and connect the work you’re doing within STACK – groups like StranzCrossley, Inc, CEimpact, and Bula Law all share common goals of bringing resources to grow better teams – and STACK now serves as a way to connect it all together.

More than just pharmacies, we recently launched a member and education management portal for the Pharmacy Benefit Management Institute – ensuring their members can take advantage of their top-line educational content, and ensuring their organization can approach member management in a far more meaningful way.  

We’ve only just begun – with more organizations coming onboard each and every week, we’re continually pushing the envelope of what you should expect from a healthcare software platform.  We’re striving to put all of the meaningful information for your professional life in one place so you don’t need to search for another username, another password, another website.  Lots to be excited about for such a young company – even one that kicked off their sales efforts in the middle of a pandemic.  Join us – take a look for yourself and see how STACK can drastically change the way that you manage your business.
