Sentry Brings 340B Results Oriented Impact to HFMA’s ANI 2013
As the industry leader in compliance solutions, Sentry will be helping 340B stakeholders at HFMA’s annual event recalculate their program participation to maximize benefits and ensure program integrity.
DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla., June 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Sentry Data Systems will display its 340B expertise and data-driven focus on results as an exhibitor at the Healthcare Financial Management Association (HFMA) Annual National Institute (ANI) that takes place June 16 – 18 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla.
Visitors to Sentry’s booth, #535, can register to win $500 in American Express gift cards and speak with Sentry staff about how to maximize their 340B participation while ensuring audit preparedness – a topic of growing interest among participating 340B hospitals.
Today’s safety net hospital is faced with many financial challenges and the need to maintain the care for the nation’s underserved populations. The 340B program was designed to benefit hospitals and other safety net providers in the effort “to stretch scarce Federal resources as far as possible, reaching more eligible patients and providing more comprehensive services” as defined in 1 H.R. Rep. No. 102-384(II), at 12 (1992).
“340B can provide some of the resources desperately needed for Covered Entities to continue their mission, but they must adhere to strict regulatory operations in order to successfully participate in the program,” said Travis Leonardi, CEO and Founder of Sentry. “Sentry’s technology provides the compliance and audit tools required for a hospital to fully realize the program’s benefits.”

Sentry was founded and is managed by pharmacists and healthcare professionals who are focused on meeting the specific and complex data needs of healthcare institutions involved in the 340B program. Because of Sentry’s focus, experience and audit-ready 340B solutions, more than 1,000 Covered Entities and Community/Outpatient pharmacies across the country use Sentry’s software to manage their 340B participation.
Sentry’s technology offerings include Sentinel RCM, a Revenue Cycle Management application for 340B mixed-use compliance management, and Sentrex, a Contract Pharmacy Solution. Both offerings meet the highest standards for healthcare data transfer with SSAE16 certification and HIPAA compliance.
As part of Sentry’s commitment to 340B stakeholders, Sentry’s booth will have copies available of two industry white papers – “An Analysis of 340B Solutions” and “340B Contract Pharmacies.” Combined, these papers provide education and guidance on the intricacies involved in the selection of a technology provider to assist with the management of the 340B program and the extended program benefit derived from enacting contract pharmacy relationships.
