Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) November 10, 2016
The Excelera network consists of point-of-care specialty pharmacies owned by health systems and academic medical centers. The network provides members nationally scaled infrastructure and support to help them develop best practices and gain access to limited-distribution drugs and biologics and restrictive payer agreements so members can provide continuity of care for their patients with complex and chronic conditions requiring specialty drugs and biologics. The network also serves as a national platform for collaboration to optimize outpatient specialty drug therapy for population health.
“Maintaining access to a broad range of pharmaceuticals allows our clinicians to provide convenient, affordable and consistently excellent care by helping them keep complex patients in our network,” said Quan Pho, vice president, pharmacy, Centura Health. “By joining the Excelera network we can operate a high performing specialty pharmacy that meets the requirements of payers and manufacturers and optimizes overall patient care and satisfaction in the process.”
“Centura Health is another example of a prestigious health system keenly interested in improving clinical and operational performance in the interest of complex patient management,” said Jim Fox, chief executive officer of the Excelera network. “Integrating members such as Centura Health into our high performing national specialty pharmacy network, bolsters our value proposition to health plans and pharmaceutical manufacturers, and provides individual members the national scale necessary to propel their specialty business forward.
Specialty pharmaceuticals are expensive drugs that require special handing and administration and are often used to treat the most ill and clinically complex patients. The Excelera organization will partner with Centura Health to develop key specialty pharmacy capabilities including training, operations, data aggregation, reporting for drug manufacturers and payers, revenue cycle management and pharmacy business office.
