Receiving a chronic condition diagnosis is undoubtedly a time of great uncertainty that can change someone's life in a matter of seconds. Doubts, fear, and anguish can overcome the patient.
While it is vital to have medical providers who can transmit tranquility and comfort at the time of diagnosis, the specialty pharmacy team will also have the role of accompanying that person during their lifelong chronic illness journey. This responsibility shouldn't be taken lightly.
A specialty pharmacy offers additional services to patients with chronic diseases and complex medical conditions such as cancer, hemophilia, multiple sclerosis, rheumatoid arthritis, Crohn's, osteoporosis, and migraine. These services include managing all administrative aspects of the health plan, educating about conditions and treatments, checking for eligible financial assistance programs, and following up to ensure treatment proceeds as expected.
However, their work must go further because the commitment must be to contribute to providing better access to medicines. In addition, agility in processing and dispatching treatment is equally valuable. Therefore it must be guided by a philosophy where the patient always comes first.
Our patients are not numbers; they are people who need our support beyond processing their prescriptions. Our community has specialty pharmacies to assist them, educate them about their conditions, stay up-to-date on their treatment, connect them with information about financial assistance programs, and more.
