Specialty pharmacy growth is outpacing traditional prescription medication growth encompassing nearly half of total US drug spend. The need for specialty pharmacies to develop a strategic communication plan for reaching, engaging, and managing patients has become an essential component for operational efficiency, clinical outcomes, and customer satisfaction. Amber Specialty Pharmacy has partnered with Houston-based MarkeTouch Media to streamline their patient communication using automated, targeted, and responsive outbound notifications across a variety of services. This addition of using patient preferred communication has allowed Amber Specialty Pharmacy to provide more focus on their patients and spend less time managing routine tasks that were consuming valuable staff resources.
