Specialty pharmacies dispense medications (injectable, intravenous or oral) which require special handling to a client's/patient's home, physician's office, or clinic specializing in certain disease states. Specialty medications target a specific population with a chronic and sometimes life-threatening disease. Specialty pharmacy services include disease-specific clinical monitoring, as well as patient education, compliance and adherence programs.
