BOSTON, Nov. 08, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Signature Healthcare patients and the surrounding community enjoy convenient access to affordable prescriptions at the new pharmacy located at 110 Liberty Street in Brockton, Massachusetts. The pharmacy opened its doors at the end of August and has since served over 450 patients.
About 60 percent of those patients are enrolled in a specialty pharmacy program built in partnership with Clearway Health, allowing patients access to the medications they need to improve their health. Specialty drugs require special handling and careful coordination with the team caring for the patient. Specialized patient education is required for effective use.
Signature Healthcare is partnering with Clearway Health for specialty pharmacy and pharmacy program operational process optimization while focusing on patient-centered care and access.
Signature Healthcare Pharmacy is staffed by licensed professionals who are part of the patient care team. Healthcare providers work directly with the pharmacist to ensure they have a complete view of the patient’s medication history and active prescriptions.
“We are proud to offer greater access to retail pharmacy services to our patients, providers, employees and the community,” explained Margaret Clapp, director of Enterprise Pharmacy at Signature Healthcare. “Our patients appreciate the convenience and availability of Clearway Health’s dedicated connections who work collaboratively with them and their entire care team.”
Through this pharmacy deployment, Clearway Health has unlocked capabilities that are often unavailable to local or regional hospitals, including access to restricted drugs, as well as bypassing payer or pharmacy benefit managers.
“Over many years, we have built a strong partnership with Signature Healthcare that has had a significant impact on their pharmacy services,” explained Nicole Fauchet, president of Clearway Health. “We are incredibly proud of the results and care we have provided to the Brockton community.”
