arrows-1412061_1920Specialty pharmacy has changed a lot in the last few years (especially, with new players entering the market and multiple mergers and acquisitions).

So, how do people in the industry feel about the changes? At the 2016 NASP Annual Meeting & Expo in Washington, D.C., we sat down with an array of industry leaders to discuss their thoughts on how the specialty pharmacy industry has evolved and what it means for their business.
