Keys to Managing Specialty Pharmacy Stakeholders

A large majority of pharmacies also offer many sophisticated reporting options that can demonstrate positive outcomes that traditional pharmacies do not. Payors who employ specialty pharmacy utilization practices effectively will generate positive outcomes for their patients.
Successful specialty pharmacies will have an in-depth understanding of what each stakeholder seeks.  Above all, the pharmacies and other stakeholders that establish relationships of trust, and share a common vision for their patients, will provide the highest quality of service and have the greatest impact for those who they serve.
