The medication marketplace has changed dramatically in recent years and the advances we’re seeing today are staggering. With specialty medications, we can actually cure diseases that were once incurable, such as Hepatitis C. However that comes with a hefty price tag and a myriad of other concerns. Specialty medications can cost upwards of $100,000 a year and as these treatments are complex in nature, there are many other considerations, particularly adherence, which can be even more difficult to achieve with unique treatments.
Specialty medication advances are showing no signs of slowing down, with 64% of the new drugs being developed today comprised of costly specialty treatments. While these new medications could revolutionize healthcare, due to their complexity, high-touch, personalized pharmacy care is needed to ensure optimal outcomes.
