Meet the future of pharmacy solutions

The COVID-19 vaccines are an example of how fast the pharmaceutical industry can deliver breakthrough medications and solutions. However, availability of a medication or therapy is just the starting point.

That’s where pharmacy solutions organizations come in.

Pharmacy solutions organizations, traditionally know as either pharmacy benefits managers (PBMs) or health services organizations, will play an expanded role in the distribution of pharmaceuticals. Part of their job is to get high-cost breakthrough medications or expensive gene and cell therapies to the right patients at the right time and place – and to keep costs down at the same time.

Meeting the surging demand of chronic care prescriptions.

Another challenge facing your clients and their workforce is the increase of prescriptions to treat chronic conditions in an aging population.

  • 50% of older Americans have at least two chronic conditions*
  • 39% take five or more prescriptions at any one time**

Pharmacy solutions organizations are expected to drive affordable solutions to help older patients access the chronic medications they need.  

This white paper gives you the full story of how pharmacy solutions organizations will be bringing savings and efficacy to the pharmacy space.
