Over the past several years, health system specialty pharmacy (HSSP) growth has been record-breaking. HSSP experts and industry veterans, Brandon Newman, PharmD, MMHC, CSP, and Jessica Mourani, PharmD, recently sat down with Becker’s Healthcare to break down the trend and explain why leaders will continue to invest in growth.
Here are four key takeaways from their conversation:
- HSSPs are growth drivers. Hospital and health system leaders are investing in HSSP growth because the services directly support organizational goals such as improving patient care experiences and outcomes, which contribute to growth.
- The top focus for HSSPs in 2023: Investing in clinical performance measurement. The most pressing challenge for hospitals and health systems is measuring clinical performance to demonstrate value. This year, HSSPs are prioritizing outcomes measurement improvement strategies.
- Clinical outcomes measurement advancements are accelerating. Across conditions, specialty pharmacy teams are making breakthroughs in measuring specialty pharmacy success. Notable achievements have been made this year in the autoimmune, oncology, diabetes, and asthma spaces this year.
