New Program Is Focused on Improving Specialty Drug Adherence

With an eye on improving medication adherence for people with rare diseases or chronic conditions, AllianceRx Walgreens Pharmacy recently launched RightGuide. The program helps digitally connect pharma manufacturers to patients and their caregivers in order to provide education on a variety of topics, from training people how to self-administer injectable agents to helping with financial issues and addressing the side effects of medications.

The specialty pharmacy is working with manufacturers to create customized, brand-specific resources “to help facilitate patient conversion, adherence and retention — while minimizing treatment barriers for patients and caregivers,” explains Tracey James, R.Ph., chief operating officer at AllianceRx Walgreens Pharmacy.
