The Turnkey team of Rich and Rich clearly have extensive hospital experience with 340B and were able to quickly understand our operational issues and provide clear recommendations. When our team had questions months later they promptly responded to each request with thoughtful and specific advice.
We have contracted Turnkey Rx Solutions for almost a year now. We're very impressed with the work they have been able to provide us. They understand the high standards that our health system has and have been the efficient delivering. I highly recommend working with them.
Turnkey Solutions was well prepared for our mock audit and knew just what questions to ask and where to look for improvement opportunities. They easily found the needles in the haystack and took the time to understand our practice to make the best suggestions for improvement. ... It was a delight to work with them and I will contract with them again in the future.
We have been extremely satisfied with the assistance Turnkey Pharmacy Solutions has provided to us as our 340B program has expanded. We have worked with Rich and Rob and find them to be extremely knowledgeable, thorough, and personable. Their mission was to identify and minimize any potential risk areas within our 340B program. As a result, we feel very confident in our processes.
TurnKey is very knowledgeable of the 340B Program. They identified potential risk areas for our organization and provided us with the necessary corrective action. Thanks to TurnKey, we identified and addressed those risk areas and are now better prepared for a HRSA Audit.
The information and resources that were provided through the audit process with Turnkey have been invaluable. We will definitely continue to work with them in the future to ensure our program compliance.
Together, we can get your 340B Program HRSA compliant!
