340B Program Compliance. Are You Audit Ready?
It was great to connect with industry leaders during the 12th Annual 340B Coalition Winter Conference!
As a pharmacist, clinic director, or C-suite executive, one of your top priorities is to provide safe and
cost-effective care, and ensure regulatory compliance.
RxStrategies’ 340BPlus Split Billing, Compliance Plus (Self-Audit Portal), Contract Pharmacy and
Specialty Pharmacy solutions are key to a comprehensive and compliant 340B program.
For more than a decade, RxStrategies has provided innovative solutions to assist providers in meeting

Is your WAC spend out of whack?
Based on the way many 340B solutions accumulate eligibility and replenish inventory, you may be
missing out on 340B savings. Sentry helps you manage your crosswalk differently. With flexible and
dynamic mapping, and tracking for each 11-digit NDC, we’ll help you maintain the audit trail needed for
compliance – all while optimizing your drug spend.
Need more control over compliance?
There’s no one-size-fits-all here. Sentry’s solutions operate on the configuration options you’ve chosen,
based on the unique requirements of your organization’s policies and procedures. Sentry’s rules-based
engine automatically applies the options you choose, eliminating much of the risk associated with highly
manual processes, so there are no surprises. You’re in control.
We are the next generation of 340B. Visit our website to learn more. www.sentryds.com
