In a recent interview for an article featured on the Drug Topics website, President and CEO of CSI Specialty Group Suzette DiMascio, CHE, CMCE, CPC, discussed decisions that need to be made when entering the specialty pharmacy space.
“Your opportunities are going to become less and less because the market is becoming more sophisticated, there are more channels of individuals involved in specialty, and the payer networks and limited distribution networks are getting smaller,” she says in the article.
She also noted the challenges on the road to specialty pharmacy and how you can find success by focusing on what makes your community pharmacy unique.
“Retailers and community pharmacies have established relationships with their patients. There’s an innate trust that is built with their patients over the years.”
