AMCP Specialty Pharmacy Central

Specialty Pharmacy 

Welcome to Specialty Pharmacy Central, home to all of AMCP’s specialty pharmacy programs, materials and tools. Being the leader in this sector, the fastest growing in pharmaceuticals, is a top AMCP strategic priority – and includes our commitment to increasing awareness and understanding of specialty medicines, including biosimilars, among members, other managed care practitioners, policymakers, industry leaders and the public. 

 

Managed Care Pharmacy at the Forefront

Managed care pharmacists are taking key leadership roles within their organizations and in Congress, regulatory agencies and state capitals regarding the proper use and administration of specialty pharmaceuticals, which includes:  

  • Care management
  • Storage control and safe handling
  • Preparation
  • Administrative procedures
  • Distribution
  • Formulary development
  • Regulatory pathways 

Biosimilars

Biosimilars represent an opportunity to bend the cost curve for specialty drugs. AMCP believes the public and health care community’s adoption of biosimilars will be enhanced if we can assure them that biosimilars are being actively monitored for safety and effectiveness.
