End-To-End Electronic Support for Specialty Medications
AMP: Access for More Patients™ Reduces Time-To-Therapy by 27%
Relative to traditional pharmaceuticals, access requirements for specialty medications are more numerous, time-consuming and complicated, with patients often struggling to coordinate therapy on their own. While manufacturer-sponsored hub services exist to help patients and providers fulfill necessary steps to start specialty therapies, manual inefficiencies and misaligned incentives within the traditional hub model limit effectiveness of support. To address these challenges and help patients get the medications they need, an electronic platform for support services was developed – AMP: Access for More Patients™ (AMP). Within two months of operation for a specialty medication in the neurology therapeutic class, AMP achieved widespread provider adoption, marked reduction in completion time for administrative processes and significant improvement in time-to-therapy for patients.
