How Can a Specialty Pharmacy Linked to a Retail Pharmacy Reduce Drug Costs?

Joel Wright, chief executive officer, AllianceRx Walgreens Prime discusses how specialty pharmacies can leverage retail pharmacies connections to negotiate costs.

Wright: A specialty pharmacy associated with a retail pharmacy allows us to take advantage of the scale. Also, it allows us to be able to negotiate better prices, as well as provide another access point. If patients want to pick up and it’s more convenient for them if they’re working and not going to be at home, it allows us to leverage that retail store for them to also be able to receive their medications.
