OMAHA, Neb.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--In honor of Amber Specialty Pharmacy's 25th anniversary, the specialty pharmacy provider has launched Vitality, a new six-month transplant recovery program to help support patients and caregivers during the post-transplant period, which is considered the most critical time for those patients.
The new Vitality program helps support patients through billing, medications, dietitian support and patient outreach.
Transplant billing can be very complex. At Amber Specialty Pharmacy, each patient is assigned a billing specialist who ensures all resources are being utilized to reduce patient expenses and guarantee timely medication delivery. The specialist also walks patients through the intricate billing process of transplant medications with Medicare Part B.
Transplant medications are unique with complex side effects. Amber Specialty Pharmacy employs pharmacists who have specialized training in transplant care and review each patient’s medications to prevent any drug interactions, as well as adjust medication dosages to help with side effects. Amber Specialty Pharmacy’s team is also available to answer any patient questions 24/7 with a focus on maintaining medication adherence.
Many patients experience side effects from transplant medications, which can lead to nutrient deficiencies. Amber Specialty Pharmacy offers patients free dietitian consultations with its in-house registered dietitian who can evaluate patients’ diets and food preferences to help create a personalized plan to support each individual’s health.
Throughout the six-month Vitality program, Amber Specialty Pharmacy offers continued outreach and educational resources to help support transplant patients during their recovery journey.
“Since 1998, Amber Specialty Pharmacy has been serving as the premier transplant pharmacy provider to patients across the U.S.,” said Kristin Williams, president of Amber Specialty Pharmacy. “The new Vitality program marks our latest advancement in transplant as we strive to support patients and their caregivers during the post-transplant period with a comprehensive package of services and resources to guide them in their recovery journey.”
