Pharmacy Innovation

Addressing the entire spectrum of members’ pharmacy needs, particularly in specialized areas that require unique or alternate approaches to procurement processes, including patented drugs, biologics and biosimilars, therapeutic tenders and Third Sector medications.



We work with regulatory bodies, government and other influential organizations, such as pCPA and CADTH, to align our processes and support member needs. With a focus on innovative approaches and enhancing value, we have established relationships with the global community to learn from their successes in contracting for high cost advanced therapies.


Members can be assured of predictable pricing throughout the life of the contract, supporting members’ budget and forecasting needs.


We do the heavy lifting on your behalf, so you can focus on patient care. Our process includes developing contract strategies; mapping the contracts; working with suppliers to improve product packaging and labelling; safely transitioning new medications into member facilities; and beyond.


Our innovative contracts comply with the Canadian Free Trade Agreement (CFTA) and Comprehensive Economic and Trade Agreement (CETA), as well as all provincial and regional regulations governing our members.
