Clinical Implications for Design of In-House Specialty Pharmacies
The demand for in-house specialty pharmacies in large healthcare facilities is on the rise. Health systems are realizing (more) the benefits these pharmacies offer to their employees and patients. As these pharmacies are expected to facilitate seamless clinical support and education, provide external distribution (which inherently brings challenges), and offer integrated technology, conventional design is facing an evolution. With this evolution, we see opportunity for improving employee workflow and increasing the quality of patient care.
