Adheris, an inVentiv Health company and the leading and largest provider of direct-to-patient medication adherence programs, announced today that Community Specialty Pharmacy Network, Inc (CSPN) has joined its growing network of over 21,000 pharmacies. CSPN is the largest community specialty pharmacy network in the country, with over 220 member pharmacies servicing 49 states and over 100,000 specialty patients. This partnership brings valuable medication education and adherence programs to CSPN members.
Patients who do not take their medications as prescribed by their physicians cost the United States health care system an estimated $290 billion in avoidable medical spending every year. For over 19 years, Adheris has been working with its pharmacy network members to address this problem through highly customized and educational refill-reminder programs designed to support prescription therapy as prescribed—all while strictly safeguarding patient privacy.
"Our partnership with Adheris will result in a great aid to our compliance efforts for the patients served by our pharmacy partners," said Nick Calla, vice president of industry relations, CSPN. "Adheris is an expert in the field of patient communication and adherence activities."
Mike Roberts, vice president of pharmacy operations for Adheris, said: "Adheris applauds CSPN for addressing the challenging obstacle of medication non-adherence. We are very excited to work with CSPN to deliver adherence support to their patients, not only for common chronic conditions, but also for the unique needs of patients’ utilizing specialty pharmacy medications."
