Altru Specialty Pharmacy

Welcome to Altru Specialty Pharmacy, where our staff strives to deliver world-class health to the residents of our region. By improving health and enriching lives, the specialty pharmacy department at Altru Health System seeks to enhance patient care through the delivery of specialty pharmacy services that, in collaboration with other healthcare providers, improves patient overall health and wellbeing.

Our specialty pharmacy team is comprised of a small group of dedicated and knowledgeable pharmacy staff who work to provide individualized care to each and every one of our patients. We work closely with our patient’s healthcare providers to provide a team approach to healthcare. Our patients know us by name, and we strive to provide personalized care.

Specialty pharmacies differ from traditional retail pharmacies in multiple aspects ranging from patient care and disease management to monitoring and adherence management. Specialty pharmacy focuses on high cost, high touch medications including oral, injectable and biologic products. Healthcare professionals at specialty pharmacies service patients with complex and often rare conditions, and provide patient education, promote adherence to medication regimen, promote appropriate medication cost, aide in cost reduction for patient’s and work closely with other members of the patient’s healthcare team to improve clinical and economic outcomes.
