Atlantic Pharmaceutical Services (APSI) was incorporated under the Canada Business Corporations Act in August of 1980. The Pharmacy Association of Nova Scotia (PANS) owns APSI.
In the early years APSI sold pharmacy software and computer management hardware to pharmacies in the Atlantic region as well as pricing guides. By 1983 the hardware and software side of the business had become so large that APSI sold off this business to QS/1 Data.
Since that time APSI has concentrated on the provision of pricing guides to pharmacies in Nova Scotia, Newfoundland, New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island through a paper based subscription system.
In 2002 APSI began the development of it own website with the intention of providing virtually instant access to subscribers to the price guides. In addition the site allows for the downloading of the price guide, and pricing updates.
In 2003 APSI began the construction of an Online Product Identification Number Index System for Nova Scotia called OPINIONS.
Atlantic Pharmaceutical Services Incorporated (APSI) is housed in the offices of the Pharmacy Association of Nova Scotia in Dartmouth Crossing.
