ACE Buddy award - Amy Wells

The ACE Buddy grant was created to help the employees of covered entities become 340B ACE certified. The ACE Buddy Grant partially funds the cost of the Apexus 340B Certificate (or 340B ACE certification) and provides a CaptureRx ACE certified expert to act as a mentor – or ‘buddy’.

The covered entities participating employee and the CaptureRx ‘buddy’, work together to analyze modules, create study guides, and discuss different aspects of the Apexus 340B course.

One of our latest ACE Buddy graduates is Amy Wells from Munson Otsego Memorial Hospital. Amy graduated from the Apexus 340B certification with the help of her CaptureRx ‘buddy’, Elsa Perez.

We interviewed Amy to discuss why she chose to become 340B ACE certified and ask her about her overall experience with the ACE Buddy program.

Here is that transcript:

1.How was your overall experience with the ACE Buddy program?

“My experience was great, Elsa was a very supportive and helpful ACE buddy that kept me on track!”

2. What did you choose to get ACE certified?

I work with the 340b program every day and I find myself always wanting to understand or know more, I thought this was the next logical step!

3. Has the ACE certification helped you in your day-to-day work life??

It has helped, I feel more confident that I know what I am doing, and I know that I have resources available to me if I need them!

4. Tell us a bit about yourself – what are some hobbies you enjoy?

I just started a new job as a traveling Pharmacy Technician and I am loving it but when I am not working, I enjoy being outdoors, we just bought a fixer-upper cabin with friends on Drummond Island in Northern Michigan, and we are enjoying fixing it up and when we aren’t working on the cabin we are fishing or exploring the beautiful island!

Here at CaptureRx, we’re committed to continuously support the missions of covered entities. The ACE Buddy program is just one example of how we do that.
