Better Prepared for a Competitive Edge

The evolving role of specialty pharmacies in serving patients with complex, chronic diseases is critical to improving patient outcomes and financial performance. If you are part of a coordinated or clinically integrated network that participates in new financial models, such as value-based contracting, your pharmacy becomes an increasingly vital member of the patient management team.
