With the COVID-19 pandemic straining your bottom line and the 340B program under fire like never before from drug manufacturers and HRSA, there’s never been a better time to learn how to maximize your 340B benefits and make the program work for you. If you’re a Sentry customer, you’ll have the opportunity to do just that in November, when the next round of our Foundations Certificate training program begins.
As we’ve written before, Foundations is a 12-week certification program for covered entities and consultants who support our customers on their 340B programs, aimed at turning Sentry customers into power users of our 340B platforms so they’re positioned to reap the full benefits of the program. It’s offered as a free service to existing Sentry customers.
Foundations is offered quarterly through virtual sessions for a few hours each week of lectures, scenario review and Q&A. Classes are also repeated throughout the week to make it easier for users.
Invested in your success
The program is designed so that users understand the full scope of how Sentry’s tools support the 340B program and to help better align their roles with the program through the software. Training takes the user through Sentinel, our hospital procurement and 340B compliance module; Sentrex, our 340B contract pharmacy management and eRx Eligibility Check modules; and SentryCore, the platform that connects our solutions with our unique patient database. It ends in a certificate for all three.
Sentry also offers more customized training options of shorter duration for users who want a narrower focus to solve certain problems or gain more specific knowledge and expertise.
No matter which route you choose, all of our courses are designed around key principles of adult learning and are problem-focused, user-driven and intentional, meaning it offers purposeful, specific instruction. Groups are also kept small and personalized.
Sentry’s Training and Education department has nine full-time, skilled training professionals that conduct more than 3,000 live instructor-led training events each year. Training specialists have earned certificates of course completion from the Association for Talent Development, an independent organization for professionals who train and develop the skills of others as part of their role, as well as going through the Apexus Certified Expert program for 340B certification.
By investing in creating superior training offerings, we’re investing in our customers’ success. It’s yet another way we’re here to help our customers understand and benefit to the fullest from 340B.
