ANACORTES, Wash. (February 11, 2020)—Integra and QS/1 announced the two pharmacy software solution providers are combining their customer conferences into one event. The inaugural iQ Conference will take place in Louisville, Kentucky, May 12–15, 2020, bringing experts from community and institutional pharmacy under one roof to share a wealth of educational and networking opportunities.

“Integra and QS/1 have a long history of engaging customers and making their conferences something pharmacy owners and staff anticipate nearly a year in advance,” said Kevin P. Welch, president of Smith Technologies. “By combining these two conferences into one, we are going to demonstrate how we are uniquely qualified to span the waterfront of health care pharmacy in ways that will elevate how our customers compete.”

Both conferences offer continuing education credits to pharmacists and pharmacy technicians, as well as business and IT classes for owners and support staff. By bringing the two conferences together, attendees can take advantage of an even wider range of educational topics. There will also be updates on product enhancements and new technology to give customers insight into how to get the most from their pharmacy management systems. In addition, the 2020 iQ Conference will offer thought-provoking and knowledgeable industry speakers to share their perspectives on the future of community and institutional pharmacy markets.

“We take pride in ensuring our customers receive the training and education they need to work smarter,” Welch added. “Connecting and learning from each other and taking time to recharge are other key benefits our conference provides.”

Integra and QS/1 customers will receive a limited-time early registration discount before March 31, 2020. The full iQ Conference agenda, as well as details on continuing education opportunities, can be found at
