SPECIALTY PHARMACY DATA TO OPTIMIZE MEDICATION
MANAGEMENT AND IMPROVE PATIENT OUTCOMES
Specialty pharmacies are a key component of the patient journey for specialty areas including oncology, hematology, rheumatology and neurology, that have complex treatment regimens and protocols. Specialty pharmacies aim to meet the unique and complex needs of each patient through high-touch service and accurate, timely data , which can be used to manage, optimize, and drive therapy adherence to improve patient outcomes.
Over 80% of drug manufacturers manage some or all of their products through a limited distribution model. When evaluating a specialty pharmacy for inclusion in a limited distribution network, pharmaceutical manufacturers look for differentiating factors such as time to fill/refill (including prior authorizations and assessments), patient engagement and communication, specialty pharmacy data services and reporting, and how effectively they get a patient on a drug and keep them on therapy.
THE PRIORITIES FOR SPECIALTY PHARMACIES ARE:
IMPROVE PATIENT OUTCOMES AND SATISFACTION WHICH IMPACTS PATIENT ACQUISITION AND RETENTION
ENABLE ACCESS TO LIMITED DISTRIBUTION NETWORKS DRIVEN BY SPECIALTY PHARMACY DATA MANAGEMENT
IMPROVE MANAGED CARE CONTRACTING BY DEMONSTRATING LOWER COST OF CARE AND IMPROVED OUTCOMES
