  • Event Time: Noon Central

Specialty Pharmacy (SP) is a rapidly growing area of interest for many health system leaders. This area of ambulatory pharmacy is different from typical pharmacy dispensing.

In this webinar, you’ll gain an understanding of how specialty pharmacy is a different service offering than traditional retail by exploring the 5 P’s of Specialty Pharmacy - Patient, Provider, Pharmacy, Payer, and Pharmaceutical Manufacturer. The presenter will compare and contrast the important differentiations of a health-system-based SP offering, how it can affect the profitability of the system, and how it can serve their stakeholders in a more integrated manner.

In addition, learn the complexities of the Payer and Pharmaceutical manufacturer roles and how they play an important role in access to patients and drugs. Particular focus will be on the payer control of specialty scripts and understanding how to begin a specialty pharmacy expansion without complete payer access.

Attendees Will Learn:

  • How to implement a specialty pharmacy strategy for your health system
  • What makes specialty different than retail by focusing on the 5 P’s of specialty pharmacy
  • Strategies to incrementally grow the retail service line by focusing on improved service offerings on select SP products that are currently available at retail
