Elevating the Patient Experience

Health System Solutions

Amplifying the pharmacy's role in patient-centered care

At AmerisourceBergen, our solutions—including specialty and ambulatory pharmacy—help ensure that health systems extend care to patients where and when they need it most. Our distribution services create access to tens of thousands of therapies, while our patient assistance services help the pharmacy operate more efficiently while navigating the complex reimbursement and affordability challenges patients often face. For patients returning home, our transitional care consulting offerings improve coordination and continuity of a patient’s care to ensure better outcomes and reduce 30-day readmissions. Our experts understand your goals and tailor the right solutions to elevate your pharmacy’s role in patient care.

Navigating reimbursement and affordability challenges

For patients with complex medical conditions that require specialty drugs, the latest cutting-edge therapies can carry large cost shares that make it difficult to access and remain on therapy. And underinsured patients can put financial strain on the health systems that treat them. While patient assistance programs help hospitals recover uncompensated dollars, for providers without the available personnel, resources and time to navigate the administrative complexities, the challenge to meet the requirements of many programs can be overwhelming. As a result, thousands—even millions—of eligible dollars go unrecovered. With more than 20 years of experience with patient assistance programs for pharmaceuticals and medical devices, PHS has helped more 140 health systems of all sizes in 32 states save over $37 million annually in product costs.
