Millions of patients require expensive specialty medications. Before these prescriptions are filled, patients undergo the complex paper-phone-fax processes for enrollment using a specialty pharmacy or “hub” associated with the drug’s manufacturer. Recognizing there must be a better way, the industry is taking steps to automate this process. Here are five opportunities to accelerate specialty prescription enrollment.
Point-of-Care Partners is heavily involved in laying the groundwork for automating specialty prescribing. The NCPDP Task Group for Specialty Prescribing is chaired by our own Pooja Babbrah and a colleague, Laura Topor.
