Therigy, LLC, the trusted source for specialty pharmaceutical consulting, web products, and data analytics, announces an agreement with the UHC Specialty Pharmacy Program selecting TherigySTM as the preferred specialty pharmacy care management application provider for UHC members participating in the program.

Participating institutions will have access to TherigySTM’s robust library of specialty therapy programs to provide superior pharmacy care needs for their patients, assure continuity of care for every patient, and advance UHC’s “Triple Aim” goals of improving care, improving the health of populations, and reducing the cost of care.

"After a thorough selection process, TherigySTM was chosen for the UHC Specialty Pharmacy Program to provide academic medical centers a comprehensive suite of tools and services to help them successfully establish new specialty pharmacies and expand existing ones," says Kevin Colgan, Associate Vice President for UHC's Specialty Pharmacy Program. "Our health care organizations are at the forefront in their commitment to specialty care and quality patient outcomes. At the end of the day, TherigySTM has the robust content, ease of implementation, flexibility, and data support our members require."

"We're excited to partner with an organization representing so many of the nation's academic medical centers and high quality health systems," says Russel Allinson, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Clinical Officer for Therigy. "The UHC Specialty Pharmacy Program is all about a commitment to providing the highest level of specialty therapy care, and we are humbled that TherigySTM has been vetted as a key enabler of quality specialty therapy support."

The first specialty clinical content SaaS application of its kind, TherigySTM is widely used by specialty pharmacies to provide superior care and therapy-specific clinical support, maximize adherence, and improve outcomes. The application allows for accurate and reliable data collection and outcomes reporting and easily integrates with pharmacy dispensing systems. Comprised of a multidisciplinary team of clinicians, pharmacists, and software engineers, Therigy's team has configured more than 400 clinical assessments and protocols into TherigySTM to provide a turn-key application with easy customization of content by users.

Launched earlier this year, the UHC Specialty Pharmacy Program is designed to improve access to specialty medications for participating hospitals and their patients. The Program helps provide a seamless continuum of care to improve patient outcomes, reduce delays in initiating new therapies, and help meet the needs of academic medical centers and their affiliated organizations nationwide.
