Listen to Integra’s First Podcast!

The Integra Podcast series - Direct Exchange & Secure Messaging

Integra’s Louie Foster discusses Secure Messaging in LTC with Todd Eury of Pharmacy Podcast. As industry communication channels have evolved, so has DocuTrack, to include cloud faxing, electronic prescription modules, interfaces to EHR providers, secure text messaging, and soon, direct secure messaging.

Explore the basics of secure messaging, gain clarity on key components including HIE and HISP, and understand the plan for integration of direct secure messaging into DocuTrack.

“We want to give pharmacies the ability to manage their work in the most efficient manner, regardless of how that work comes into the pharmacy or what that work is. You can’t effectively manage work until you consolidate it. That is what we have focused our solutions on doing,” said Foster.

Integra Renews Microsoft Gold Competency

We recently renewed our Microsoft Gold Application Development competency, which demonstrates a “best-in-class” ability and commitment to meet Microsoft Corp. customers’ evolving needs in today’s dynamic business environment. This competency distinguishes us as being in the top 1 percent of Microsoft’s partner ecosystem.

“Renewing our Microsoft competencies showcases our expertise and commitment to today’s technology market, while highlighting our deep knowledge of Microsoft and its products,” said Kevin Welch, President of Integra. “Our goal is to advance our customers’ goals and ultimate success by serving as technology advisors for their business requirements.”

To earn a Microsoft gold competency, partners must successfully complete exams (resulting in Microsoft Certified Professionals) to prove their level of technology expertise, and then designate these certified professionals uniquely to one Microsoft competency, ensuring a certain level of staffing capacity. They also must submit customer references that demonstrate successful projects (along with implementing a yearly customer satisfaction study), meet a revenue commitment (for most gold competencies), and pass technology and/or sales assessments.

Recap of the Integra Conference

On February 12-14, 200 customers from over 100 pharmacies joined Integra staff and representatives from 24 long-term care businesses in New Orleans, LA for the 10th Annual Integra Conference.

Getting into the Valentine’s Day spirit at the welcome reception on Tuesday night. 

“The Integra Conference is a must attend event for us as product users,” said Angela Lindberg, Business Psychology Professional at Midwest Medical. “This year, we decided to send some key players from all areas of our operation, from IT to Project Management. Each attendee was able to identify key take-aways that save us valuable time so we are better able to care for our patients.”

Some of our lovely attendees at the welcome reception.

Keynote Speaker Sean Glaze got the event off to an energetic start with interactive, teambuilding exercises. Industry expert Lou Ann Brubaker’s presentation on how pharmacies can obtain and retain SNF accounts, and follow-up breakout session, were especially popular. On Thursday, Integra President Kevin Welch announced a soon-to-be-released DocuTrack Module, Direct Print – which prints documents directly into DocuTrack, and The Integra Society – a new online community for pharmacy professionals. Stay tuned for more info about both these projects!

Everyone got into the party spirit with float painting at Mardi Gras World. Nice aprons!

“Every year this event validates how important personal interaction is with our clients,” said Kirsten Henry, Director of Marketing at Integra. “Our goal is to provide an environment where Integra staff is fully present and available to our customers for any questions, big or small, in a fun, interactive atmosphere. It’s energizing to see the lively discussion and idea sharing between clients, staff, and vendors that ultimately results in more efficiency for our customers’ pharmacies.”

Team 9 broke out their artistic skills with impressive renderings of the Integra and QS/1 logos.

Mark your calendars now for the 11th Annual Integra Conference will be at the Marriott in Denver, CO on June 12-14, 2018.
