Armada Health Care, the nation's largest specialty pharmacy group purchasing organization (GPO), is pleased to announce an agreement with Aurora Health Care to collaborate on a host of innovative specialty pharmacy patient program offerings.

The new relationship will help Aurora deliver enhanced therapy management services to specialty patients via Armada's proprietary ReachRx Online Therapy Management (OTM) system.

Aurora will use the OTM platform as its case management tool, for enhanced management of patients and specialty products. Armada's OTM is a patient tool that allows pharmacies to track and optimize drug utilization and thus, enhance clinical outcomes, fostering the highest quality of care for specialty patients.

OTM includes custom intervention scripts for drug and disease specific side effect management and therapy protocols for increased medication compliance. OTM's extensive reporting capabilities also help pharmacies meet certain payer requirements.

Lawrence Irene, Chief Executive Officer of Armada Health Care stated, "We are delighted that Aurora Health Care has chosen to use Armada's Online Therapy Management tool to provide its specialty patients with enhanced services that help to manage chronic conditions. Aurora is a renowned leader within its market, and known for delivering the highest quality care available to its broad patient population. We are very pleased to be working with Aurora to implement our OTM solution."
