Unleash the Powerful Potential Inside Your Health System

Given the complexities of today’s healthcare environment, it is rare that we meet a specialty pharmacy that is keeping pace with the dramatic clinical, operational, governmental and financial dynamics of the sector. Leading-edge facilities in the contemporary landscape seek visibility to future opportunities - to leveraging new developments in specialty and ambulatory pharmacy to create a best-in-class offering. Ideally, their efforts produce a specialty pharmacy result in improved patient care capabilities that make a favorable contribution to the bottom line. Despite the desired outcome, however, hospitals and health systems nationwide often do not know where to start.

We make it our business to know – providing leadership and expertise to facilities looking to unleash the powerful potential of their specialty and ambulatory opportunity. With the specialty drug market projected to hit $250 billion in 2020 and represent greater than 50% of all drug spend, is your pharmacy set up to manage your patients’ needs?

Though facilities are aligned to deliver care and better outcomes to patients with chronic diseases, specialty pharmacy poses critical challenges for delivering effective care:

-Specialty medications often come at a high cost - most over $2,000 per fill
-Less than two percent of the patient population requires specialty drugs
-Specialty medications are often associated with complex administration and compliance issues
-Product manufacturers may choose to limit specialty drug distribution

SPARX brings a winning formula to address contemporary specialty pharmacy challenges – bringing leadership and clarity to hospitals and health systems in this dramatically changing landscape.
