News: New Report Reveals Best Practices and Benchmarks for Health System Specialty Pharmacy Service Clinical Measurement in 2023

Trellis Rx, LLC’s “Patient Impact Report” returns for second year with new and expanded best practices for specialty pharmacy patient outcomes and performance measurement



DUBLIN, OH February 15, 2023 – Trellis Rx, LLC, a leading technology-enabled service provider for health system specialty pharmacies (HSSPs) now part of CPS Solutions, LLC family of companies, today published the second edition of its annual “Patient Impact Report,” an industry guide for measuring HSSP clinical outcomes. Building on last year’s inaugural report—the first of its kind for HSSPs—this year’s edition offers expanded, evidence-backed clinical standards for measuring HSSP performance. It also introduces new strategies for benchmarking the specialty pharmacy’s clinical impact on patients living with common chronic conditions like asthma.


“HSSP growth is booming, but the industry's clinical outcomes measurement strategies are still maturing. This means it's often difficult for leaders to show service impact consistently and effectively,” said Brandon Newman, PharmD, MMHC, CSP, Chief Operating Officer and General Manager of Trellis Rx. “Pioneers in the industry are already using this report's research and best practices to demonstrate success. Sharing these proven strategies benefits HSSP clinical practice, health system growth, and most importantly, the lives of patients we serve.”


The Patient Impact Report compiles clinical protocols, outcomes research, and measurement best practices into a proven framework health system and pharmacy leaders can use to benchmark their HSSP’s clinical impact and value. Daily, specialty pharmacy teams at Trellis Rx’s network of partner health systems use advanced technology and workflows to gather robust data and insights around HSSP patient needs, intervention outcomes, and therapeutic results. The data was aggregated and deidentified for inclusion in the report, with interesting findings flagged for dedicated study by Trellis Rx’s Outcomes Program clinical research team.

Key Findings
Highlights from the report include:

  • The latest benchmarks and best practices in HSSP clinical outcomes measurement for patients living with complex specialty conditions like cancer, multiple sclerosis, and more.
  • New information for expanding HSSP services and driving clinical improvements for patients who live with common chronic conditions, such as asthma and diabetes.
  • Recent research evaluating how HSSPs reduce inappropriate discontinuations for patients prescribed oral oncolytics, improve severity categories for patients with autoimmune diseases, accelerate therapy state times for patients with Hepatitis C, and more.
