Alliances with specialty pharmacies result in collaboration and knowledge exchange, while building trust and increasing visibility of partners’ services.
PLAINSBORO, N.J. (PRWEB) October 27, 2015
Specialty Pharmacy Times, the specialty pharmacy industry’s number one journal and the most read publication among specialty pharmacists and pharmacy professionals, today announced it has joined with ten specialty pharmacies through its Strategic Alliance Partnership program. The new alliances will partner and share knowledge, and increase the industrywide visibility of the participating pharmacy organizations.
“We are extremely proud of our partnership program and will continue building trust with each of our partners as we provide quality content to meet the needs of our individual readers,” said Chris Hennessy, publisher of Specialty Pharmacy Times.
Joining Specialty Pharmacy Times, which serves the business and practice of specialty pharmaceuticals and therapy, are Southside Specialty Pharmacy, KloudScript, Amerita Inc., Encompass RX, Gentry Health Services, Curexa Pharmacy, Prime Aid Pharmacy Corporation, Blount Discount Pharmacy, Elwyn Pharmacy Group and New London Specialty Pharmacy. These new alliances bring the number of Specialty Pharmacy Times Strategic Alliance Partnerships to 70.
Hennessy noted that specialty pharmacies serve the needs of patients with complex health conditions and diseases. Their specialty products often have unique properties requiring enhanced services, customized equipment and procedures for shipping, precise storage conditions, intense patient management and, due to their higher cost, advanced knowledge about what the pharmacy must do to get reimbursed for them. These high-cost drugs can also be complicated for patients to use, requiring the pharmacy to provide coaching and follow-up care to ensure proper use. Specialty medicines typically treat complex diseases such as cancer, HIV, hepatitis, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis and rare genetic conditions. Specialty Pharmacy Times focuses on key areas surrounding specialty pharmaceuticals and the enhanced practice needs of pharmacists in this arena.
