Why Specialty Pharmacy?

Contact Us

As specialty pharmacy continues to expand in the healthcare space, health systems have a clear advantage when building patient-centered specialty pharmacy programs. Hospitals are uniquely positioned to integrate pharmacy services into the patient’s clinical experience and allow providers and members access to provider solutions that support continuity of care throughout the healthcare ecosystem. With nurses, physicians, and pharmacists working together, health systems can provide better and more coordinated care for patients on complex therapies.
