We are stronger together
A key element in CPhA’s tag line, “bringing the world of pharmacy together”, refers to collaborating with and involving other players in the health care industry in Canada to enhance the lives of front-line pharmacists and to improve patient outcomes. We can do this by working together and leveraging the strengths of other organizations and companies.
The CPhA Referrals program is designed to promote and market products and services from the pharmaceutical and health services industry that we believe can help achieve our objectives of supporting pharmacists and improving patient outcomes.
These organizations have approached CPhA with a product or service that they believe help move us toward our goal and we want to tell you all about them!
Blue Charm Adherence
As a leader in behavioural science, Blue Charm’s innovative solution helps patients adhere to their prescribed medications more effectively through uniquely designed engagement programs that provide medication information and financial support.
Blue Charm’s platform will launch with a focus on multiple sclerosis with additional chronic diseases to be added to the platform soon.
Medication non-adherence affects almost 50% of all patients with chronic diseases, and as a result, increases doctor and hospital visits by 5% and is attributed to $4 billion in health care costs in Canada alone. The Canadian Pharmacists Association is proud to support Blue Charm in its rollout of this unique program to improve patient outcomes, reduce health care costs in Canada, and support the important role that our front-line pharmacists play each day.

Rx Billing Genie
Created by a Pharmacist and a Pharmacists Assistant, the Rx Billing Genie app is designed to reduce the amount of time pharmacists and pharmacy technicians spend processing insurance claims on behalf of patients. The app is a resource tool for pharmacy staff that consolidates all the information that is required to process drug claims with insurance providers; it will allow you to search by insurance adjudicator, look up rejection codes, and even get an intervention code or solution without having to wait on the phone for someone to assist you.
Pharmacists and other staff can spend more than 15 hours per week on the phone trying to resolve billing issues when this time could be refocused on serving the needs of patients. The Rx Billing Genie app helps reduce that time by having key information to resolve billing issues close at hand and it is updated regularly.
The Canadian Pharmacists Association is please to help Rx Billing Genie get this app into the hands of pharmacists to reduce this time-wasting pain point in daily activities. The CPhA is offering all pharmacists a special discount available only through the CPhA to sign up and purchase this valuable resource tool. To access Rx Billing Genie you can download the app from Google Play or the App Store or access it on your computer. To get your special discount use the promo code "CPHA" when purchasing your subscription.
NOTE: Rx Billing Genie resources are currently available in Ontario, Alberta, and British Columbia
