A guide for the specialty-perplexed: Avella launches animation explaining specialty pharmacy
PHOENIX — One of the biggest questions the average person might have about specialty pharmacy is, well, what the heck is it?
Avella Specialty Pharmacy seeks to answer that question with a new, 1-minute, 45-second animated video titled, "What is a Specialty Pharmacy?" which seeks to explain the differences between a specialty pharmacy and a traditional retail pharmacy.
"Consistent with our mission of optimizing patient health, the video was developed for patients so they can quickly understand how specialty pharmacies can assist them in managing their various disease states," Avella CEO John Musil said.
