Patient First Award Received from Corcept Therapeutics

Patient First Award Received from Corcept Therapeutics

Putting patients first is what we do.  It’s what we should do.  And, we don’t expect a special award for doing our job.  Still, we can’t help but brag a little -- the Patient First award we received from Corcept Therapeutics made our day! 

It was late on a Friday when we received word that an expedited request was headed our way.  A patient with Cushing’s Syndrome was being discharged from the hospital and would need his prescription for Korlym processed and delivered within 24 hours.  CuraScript Specialty Pharmacy team members stayed late to wait for the prescription from the doctor’s office and to ensure that it would be packaged and sent for an overnight delivery. 

Cushing’s Syndrome is a hormonal disorder that can cause multiple health issues for a patient, including fatigue, weak muscles, high blood pressure, high blood sugar, and depression.  The patient needed his medicine, and our team rallied together to make sure he didn’t miss a day of therapy. 

Thanks to Corcept Therapeutics for the Patient First Award, and for giving us the opportunity to make life a little easier for a patient in need.
