How Parkway Specialty Pharmacy Reduced Delivery Confirmations from Days to 48 Hours

Patients continue to press for more virtual care options from their healthcare providers to meet their increasingly digitally focused lives better. And as research tells us that timely, accurate delivery and care coordination make up 70% of patients’ overall satisfaction, it is more important than ever for specialty pharmacies to deliver patient engagement solutions that enable a more patient-focused, digital experience. Parkway Specialty Pharmacy is one specialty pharmacy leading the way to innovate their patient engagement capabilities and expand beyond traditional communication methods.

Founded 10 years ago with only two employees, independent Parkway Specialty Pharmacy has quickly grown, now servicing an average of 1,200 patients per month across the U.S. and all its’ core therapies, including self-injectable and specialty infusion medications and home and in-office infusions treatments. To best meet the demands of an increasingly digitally-enabled patient base, the Parkway leadership team knew they needed to incorporate more effective, virtual communications into their workflows. They were also looking to improve response times and gain better data insights to ensure faster and more accurate reporting for referral partners and manufacturers that would be critical to growing their business.
