How to accelerate financial results of a specialty pharmacy service



As the prevalence of specialty medications continues to grow, health systems are uniquely positioned to enhance care for patients who require these high-cost, hard-to-manage drugs. In addition to improving clinical outcomes, patient engagement, physician satisfaction and cost of care, a health system specialty pharmacy service can drive incremental revenue and improve profitability - key benefits considering COVID-19.

This discussion will outline:
  • The importance of embedding pharmacists and pharmacy liaisons into care teams to improve patient adherence and outcomes
  • Why a comprehensive opportunity assessment is critical to ensure long-term success and overcome barriers to growth
  • How accelerating an in-house specialty pharmacy service can protect against the financial impact of recent drug manufacturer 340 contract pharmacy policies
