Full job description


PerformSpecialty is a full-service specialty pharmacy. Our goal is to provide personalized patient care and better access to achieve healthier outcomes. Each patient works with a Patient Care Coordinator who, along with the prescriber, creates a program to treat each condition individually and works to involve the patient in his or her own health.

We know that successful treatment requires payers, patients, and pharmacies to work together. That’s why we provide patients and payers with access to the most up-to-date information, 365 days a year. From our team of clinicians working around-the-clock to our integrated reporting tools, PerformSpecialty ensures that each component of the specialty treatment process is easily accessible.

PerformSpecialty also knows that patients using specialty drugs require attention above and beyond users of standard pharmaceuticals.
