At the Asembia Specialty Pharmacy Summit 2017, an Avalere-led panel identified three focus areas for specialty pharmacies looking to achieve market leadership in an increasingly value-based care environment.

Recently we examined the various models of specialty pharmacy integration/ownership and how they result in different care coordination dynamics and access to drugs. Our findings demonstrate real value and opportunities in linking medical and pharmacy data to better support the patient journey with services and tools.
