Erica explained some of the unique features of specialty medications that can make them burdensome for providers to prescribe and difficult for patients to access. Compared to traditional retail medications, specialty therapies require additional steps that must be completed before insurance coverage and dispense can be secured.

To best help providers through the extra administrative work for specialty medications, Erica explained that the traditional hub model for patient support services needs upgraded with tech integrations. Such changes can improve communication among healthcare stakeholders while accelerating how quickly steps can be completed.

She also introduced AMP: Access for More Patients™ as a tech-enabled upgrade to traditional hub services. In a recent pilot study, this solution helped to reduce time to therapy by 27 percent for patients prescribed a specialty medication.
