The Proof Is in the Pharmacy – The Specialty Pharmacy

The Proof Is in the Pharmacy – The Specialty Pharmacy

We know that patients experience more personalized care through specialty pharmacies.  And, as we integrate CuraScript and Accredo specialty pharmacies, we now have the largest specialty pharmacy in the country, with 30 locations, 400 pharmacists, and a national network of more than 550 field-based specialty nurses.

But, the burning question that’s on everyone’s mind:  what does that mean for adherence?  New research by Express Scripts finds that rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients using a specialty pharmacy have higher rates of medication adherence and significantly lower medical costs than community-based retail pharmacy RA patients.  This is vital information for manufacturers and something we’ll continue to monitor.
