Research Reveals Specialty Distribution Models Align With Healthcare Provider and Patient Needs to Achieve Cost Savings

Research authored jointly by the HDA Research Foundation and Health Strategies Group reveals that healthcare providers and payers select modes of distribution for specialty pharmaceuticals that reflect the healthcare needs of their patient populations and a desire to optimize efficiencies and lower costs.

The report, “Specialty Pharmacy: Implications of Alternative Distribution Models,” examines two distinct distribution models for specialty pharmaceuticals — External Delivery and Buy and Bill. Through interviews with nearly 60 specialty stakeholders, it explores the attributes of each method, how they are used within the specialty marketplace, and whether External Delivery is surpassing the traditional Buy and Bill method.
