The article gives physicians an in-depth perspective on how prior authorizations are becoming more complex and commonplace, and provides tips for streamlining these processes to improve practice efficiency. The magazine also covers a new research study that shows how mobile health apps are improving medication adherence in HIV patients as well as an article that profiles the federal government’s 340B Drug Discount Program. For the most recent news directly from Avella, readers can view the specialty pharmacy’s latest survey results and learn about two exciting developments—Avella’s new cGMP Outsourcing Facility and its provider portal. Patients and providers alike may also be interested in the latest edition of “Ask the Pharmacist” which includes details about specialty drug treatments for Polycystic Ovary Syndrome, a leading cause of infertility.

“The healthcare landscape is changing rapidly and Avella is dedicated to helping physicians and patients keep up with these developments,” said Rebecca M. Shanahan, CEO. “The latest issue of Dispensing Excellence provides a timely and compelling look at how specialty mediations are advancing alongside new technologies and patient care practices.”
