Cardinal Health Specialty Pharmacy

A Different Kind of Specialty Pharmacy

Specialty pharmacy programs aimed at optimizing patient care

The specialty market continues to grow, and the payer reimbursement landscape is ever-evolving.  In this dynamic setting, Cardinal Health Specialty Solutions offers an array of programs designed to support your brand and channel strategies.  Adaptive, customized, innovative – we build programs tailored to your specifications.  Our specialty pharmacy dispensing and clinical programs can accommodate a variety of commercialization efforts.

Our specialty pharmacy business practices and patient-centric service model are particularly attuned to serving the needs of small or orphan patient populations – with high-touch exceptional service, fully customized reporting, and intensive patient and caregiver support. Additionally, our pharmacy services align distinctly with limited and exclusive distribution programs as we can provide a high level of program customization, reporting, account dedication, and payer access.

Our pharmacy services can be easily integrated with other Cardinal Health solutions, thereby enabling a seamless transition from product commericialization, to distribution, patient support and early access programs. 

How Cardinal Health Specialty Pharmacy can serve you

As a leader in the healthcare industry, Cardinal Health has depth of knowledge and broad experience. With this expertise, we believe in collaborating with pharmaceutical manufacturers to develop pharmacy solutions that address their specific challenges.

Our pharmacy can support a wide range of strategies or initiatives, including:

  • New product launch
  • Product sampling and bridge programs
  • Coupon and copay assistance programs
  • Product end-of-life and brand awareness iniatives
  • Direct-to-patient programs or alternate fulfillment programs

The patient’s treatment journey often begins at the specialty pharmacy.  We recognize the importance of this initial interaction by assigning a single point of contact with a licensed pharmacy technician or registered pharmacist.

We provide white glove service, with inbound and outboundcalls handled by licensed staff, not an automated phonesystem. We believe high-quality service coupled with clinical expertise delivers the best patient experience.
