PSDA offers webinar on Secure RX Pads

Press release from the issuing company

Alexandria, VA – May 28, 2008– The overhaul of state and federal regulations on prescription pads earlier in the year has made it that much more difficult to manufacture and sell these products.  To educate printing professionals on these new regulations, the Print Services & Distribution Association (PSDA) will host a free, 30 minute, live web seminar on June 19th at 3:00pm EST.  Secure RX Pads for 2008: What You Need to Know to Sell Them will be presented by Becky Keegan, the healthcare product marketing manager for Wilmer, one of the industry's leading manufacturers of printed products for the healthcare industry.

"Wilmer's cohesive team is key to delivering quality products and services for the healthcare industry," said Keegan. "Participating in this web seminar both as the presenter and sponsor is a great way for us to provide print professionals the information they need to successfully sell RX Pads under the new regulations."

Participants can expect to learn how layering security features can provide added-value when selling secure prescription pads, get a better understanding of what the federal and state regulations are for secure prescription pads, and how to successfully implement the 4-Step Sales Cycle:  Recognition of Needs, Evaluation of Options, Resolutions of Concerns, and Decision.

"Wilmer is a natural partner for PSDA on this timely topic," said Dennis McGarry, vice president of education for PSDA. "They are on the forefront of the new regulations governing the production, and subsequently the sale, of Rx Pads.  This session is a must for any printing executive who is working with the healthcare industry."

Keegan's extensive experience with secure prescription pads and other restricted healthcare forms will be invaluable to those who are wading through the new regulations since they were enacted in April of this year.  During her time at Wilmer she has implemented the prescription pad program, offering both state and federal prescription pads.  Keegan works closely with the Wilmer manufacturing and sales team, ensuring that they deliver quality products and services to each of their customers.

Secure RX Pads for 2008: What You Need to Know to Sell Them, is proudly sponsored by Wilmer, a long time PSDA member.  For more information regarding this free web seminar and to register, visit PSDA's education website, Print University at www.printuniversity.org or contact PSDA at 800.336.4641.
