Things You Need to Know About a Specialty Pharmacy


It’s probably true that most of us only know one kind of pharmacy our whole lives. Pharmacies are those that sell our medical needs from gloves to prescription drugs. As years go by, generic pharmacies have a hard time providing all the necessary drugs needed by patients. Because diseases and health conditions vary in levels and degree, it has become difficult for them to acquire a complete stock of all prescription drugs.

Specialty pharmacies have surfaced because of the need for a pharmacy that can cater to high-end and advanced prescription drugs needed by patients with complex diseases. Payless Staffing and Consultants, Inc., a provider of pharmacy staffing in Astoria, New York, offers assistance for those who would want to start their own specialty pharmacy.

If you are seriously thinking about starting a specialty pharmacy, here are some necessary information that you need to consider:

  1. It is not your typical pharmacy
    From the name itself, we know that a specialty pharmacy does not cater your normal medical needs. Instead, they focus more on prescription drugs used only by patients who have particular health conditions. They offer specialized medicines that need to be dispensed by licensed pharmacists alone.There is a strict requirement for FDA approval before one can have their startup specialty pharmacy. The distribution of such prescription drugs is only possible upon doctor’s order.
  2. Study your market
    Since we have already established the fact that you cater specialized prescription drugs for complex diseases, then we should already get to know our potential buyers. If you are focused on providing quality drugs in your community, then you need to know what are usual health problems that they encounter.You also have to be very mindful of their medical history. This will be your basis for dispensing your medicines. Specialty pharmacies take pride in having a one on one approach to their patients. Staff and pharmacists take into account the patient’s history and work closely with their doctor so we can monitor their medical needs.The drugs that these pharmacies dispense contain a high composition of different chemicals and they could pose a hazard in the event that they are not used for their purpose.
  3. Know the possible diseases that you will deal with

    To be more specific on what are the usual diseases that you will encounter, here is a complete list:

    • cancer
    • infertility
    • HIV
    • sclerosis
    • hepatitis
    • growth deficiencies

These are just some of the many complex diseases that we could encounter. Indeed, the need for a stronger and more powerful drug is necessary. These viruses may not be easily cured by antibiotics. Hence, the need for a special drug.

  14. Hi, Iam 61 years old and had planned to take my CPP at age 70. As a forced detour, I fell ill, had to leave work. I am since provided disability insurance through my work benefit plan. Unfortunately, I have since been forced to take a CPP disability benefit. This situation has greatly impacted my long term retirement plan. The consequences are far reaching. It has decreased my potential earning ability and contribution ability which of course results in a lower company pension and Cpp payout during my retirement years. I will now be forced to accept my CPP at age 65. Would enjoy reading your new book. At this point, I need all the help I can get. Isabella Sigismundo Ontina
