Sentry Data Systems, Inc, a leader in tech-enabled services that support advanced healthcare analytics and 340B compliance solutions, has announced that Maury Regional Health has named Doreen Foster, Sentry’s Regional VP of Sales, as Maury’s Business Partner of the Year for 2018.
“Doreen exemplifies Sentry’s commitment to excellence and our promise that we will deliver MORE to our customers,” according to Travis Leonardi, CEO of Sentry Data Systems. “Her long and very successful career with Sentry is a tribute to her dedication to always putting the customer first.”
Maury has been a customer since 2009, using Sentry’s technology solutions for hospital procurement, 340B program compliance, and 340B contract pharmacy management. Most recently, Maury expanded its engagement by adding Sentry’s pharmacy and supply chain analytics solution.
Maury is Tennessee’s largest medical center between Nashville and Huntsville and is the only system in Tennessee to have been named one of the nation’s top 15 US health systems by IBM Watson Health.
Maury’s Business Partner of the Year recognition is an honor given to one company and/or individual each year who assists Maury in furthering its mission—to serve its region with clinical excellence and compassionate care.
“When the call for submissions came around, I immediately thought of Doreen,” says Jeff Binkley, PharmD, BCNSP, FASHP, Maury’s Director of Pharmacy. “One of the first recollections I have of engaging with Sentry was Doreen’s passion for the 340B program and the importance of compliance. Her presentation exuded integrity and was educational, informative, and delivered in such a way that we knew Sentry was a partner who was here to help us for the long run.”
Included in the criteria Maury used in selecting Doreen and Sentry for this honor were: behaviors that support the mission, vision, and value of the health system, exemplary job performance, excellent customer service and teamwork, and assisting Maury in meeting the needs of its community.
“Our participation in 340B has helped our organization stay independent, and Doreen and Sentry have helped make that possible,” says Binkley. “We’ve saved more than $27 million over the past nine years through 340B. We’ve enhanced several of our pharmacy services, and invested in our cancer center, which enables patients in our community to receive treatment locally instead of traveling to Nashville. Regardless what our challenges have been over the years, Doreen has always gone to bat for us.”
