California System Taps Specialty Pharmacy Partner

Sharp HealthCare, a seven-hospital system in San Diego, partnered with a specialty pharmacy solutions provider Jan. 30.

Patients at the health system will soon receive personalized specialty care, including side effect and adherence management, regular follow-ups, access to financial assistance, and free medication delivery.

Sharp’s deal with Shields Health Solutions will first focus on four disease states: hematology, oncology, rheumatology and cardiology, according to a Shields news release. The system’s three specialty hospitals are a women’s hospital, a substance use disorder treatment center and a behavioral hospital.

Shields is a Walgreens-owned business that has partnered with about 80 systems and hospitals in the U.S.
