When a patient is diagnosed with a condition that requires a specialty medication, they can be very sick and a delay in starting treatment could mean they get worse, need to visit the emergency room, or worse. According to recent research, it can still take weeks for a patient to get started on a specialty medication and an outdated, manual process is one of the impediments impacting prescribers’ and pharmacists’ ability to help their patients access and begin a specialty medication.
Join Surescripts’ Andrew Mellin, MD, and Cecelia Byers, PharmD, as they share clinical insights on the prescriber and pharmacist experience and how technology can play a role in addressing time-consuming administrative tasks, while saving patients money and getting them started on therapy faster.
