Excelera® Specialty Pharmacy Network Announces Partnership with Smith & Nephew

 

ExceleraRx Corp. announced a partnership with Smith & Nephew for advanced wound care management products used in the treatment of acute and chronic wounds. These products will be made available through Excelera to health system specialty pharmacies.

The Excelera network consists of point-of-care specialty pharmacies owned by health systems and academic medical centers. The network provides members a nationally scaled infrastructure and support to help them develop best practices, gain access to limited-distribution drugs and biologics, and provide continuity of care for their patients with complex and chronic conditions requiring specialty drugs and biologics. The network also serves as a national platform for collaboration to optimize outpatient specialty drug therapy.

“According to HCUP1, one in five patients who receive debridement of a wound, burn or infection in the hospital are readmitted within 30 days,” said Mike Zagger, SVP Sales & Marketing, Smith & Nephew Advanced Wound Management. “By partnering with Excelera, we have an opportunity to help hospitals and providers deliver accurate treatment, wound management education and comprehensive care plans which may reduce the number of readmissions."

“This partnership with Smith & Nephew is an exciting opportunity to expand our capabilities to care for a new patient base, and collaborate with additional UnityPoint Health providers,” said Ruth Coady, Executive Director of Infusion Services and Specialty Pharmacy, UnityPoint at Home. “It gives us the opportunity to coordinate care with our Wound, Ostomy and Continence Nurses (WOCN) team to improve patient outcomes where gaps in care had previously existed.”

Specialty pharmaceuticals are drugs that require special handing, storage and administration and are often used to treat the most ill and clinically complex patients. Excelera will partner with Smith & Nephew to ensure access to these important treatments is available through Excelera to health system specialty patients.
