Health system physicians and pharmacists depend on specialty drugs for effective medication management of patients with chronic, complex health conditions. But it’s increasingly difficult for hospitals and health systems to create and maintain their own specialty pharmacy operations.

Acentrus puts clients at the center of a customized specialty pharmacy solution that aligns with their current capabilities and enhances their capacity over time. It protects their ability to serve their own patients, improves the patient and provider experience and outcomes through integrated care.

As specialty drugs grow in importance, they’re also becoming harder to obtain. Manufacturers are placing more new products in limited distribution to control costs and gather data on use, compliance and adverse events.

Health plans have added more complexity to the market by tightening limits on which specialty drugs they’ll pay for and where and how patients can receive their specialty prescriptions.
