Specialty pharmacy represents an important opportunity and unique challenge for hospitals and health care systems. Maintaining more control enables organizations to deliver integrated care that improves patient journey, outcomes and reduces costs. An effective program also generates revenues that can help ensure financial viability as reimbursement tightens.
But health care systems face real barriers in creating and operating successful specialty pharmacy programs. Manufacturers are placing more products in limited distribution—and payers are tightening their formularies and giving participants narrower options for filling specialty prescriptions.
