Specialty medications can come with a high price tag and specialty mail-order pharmacies, mostly run by pharmacy benefit managers, have frequently created delays in getting necessary medications to patients.
However, new technologies have created a way for clinics and community practices to provide specialty medications to patients directly from their clinics. This makes it possible for clinics to have personalized, in-house pharmacies with shorter waiting periods and stronger doctor-patient relationships.
Learn how Ogi Kavazovic, Co-founder and CEO of House Rx, and Denali Cahoon, the tech start-up’s Chief Pharmacy and Operating Officer, have launched a platform to help clinics make this possible.
Plus, hear about how Sami Leyde’s 14-year journey to get reach a diagnosis led her to create an online blog that documented her experiences with Hypermobile Ehlers Danlos Syndrome.
