Specialty Medication Workflow – How Standards are Improving the Prescriber and Patient Experience

By 2020, a projected 9 out of 10 top-selling drugs by revenue will be Specialty.

The webinar will include an overview of the current Specialty pharmacy process; highlight electronic transactions available to improve patient care; and provide guidance on how to become involved in future enhancements.
