Community Specialty Pharmacy Network joins Pharmacist Society

CSPN hopes to create forum for specialty stakeholders

NEW YORK — The whole purpose of Pharmacist Society is to bring together the myriad stakeholders in the field, so it's only natural that specialty pharmacy also should have a place.

The Community Specialty Pharmacy Network recently joined the network and launched its first page devoted to specialty pharmacy to coincide with the National Association of Chain Drug Stores' 2012 Pharmacy & Technology Conference, currently under way in Denver.

“It becomes a forum devoted to the exchange of ideas directly related to the practice of specialty pharmacy,” CSPN VP industry relations Nick Calla told Drug Store News.

The idea is to reach out to stakeholders in specialty such as managed-care organizations, employer groups and manufacturers and give them a way to see what's being done in community specialty pharmacies.

”We are excited to have CSPN join us on Pharmacist Society, where they will take the conversation about the growing role of specialty pharmacy in the community practice setting to the next level,” Drug Store News publisher Wayne Bennett said. “By having CSPN participate in this online pharmacy community, they will help provide connectivity, engagement and conversation between all stakeholders including payers, distributors, wholesalers , suppliers, pharmacy retailers and all other players in the specialty pharmacy supply chain.”
