Ramsell thriving in Obamacare

It is as if the nation is catching up to Sylvester Flowers. Forty-nine years ago, the Howard University-trained pharmacist made it his mission to insure that the marginalized had access to prescription drugs and quality health care.
Now that mission is national policy in the Affordable Care Act. Starting from a single pharmacy in San Francisco, Flowers developed Ramsell Corp. as a pharmaceutical management provider, now active in 16 states and providing 40 percent of the AIDS drugs nationally.
Semi-retired as chairman, Flowers gets to watch his son, Eric Flowers, take the company to new heights as president and CEO.
Now headquartered in downtown Oakland, the company creates its own proprietary software, again anticipating the national policy for electronic health records.
