Ogurchak: The availability of patient data and some of the specificity we can capture as a specialty pharmacy—particularly as it relates to adherence measures and outcomes measures—really helps us view that patient’s journey overall and help us act proactively.
The more that we know about adherence, the more that we know about how well patients are responding or not, really gives us the ability to make sure patients maintain on therapy and not incur additional spend that might occur with nonadherence.
