UnityPoint utilized an outside consultant to conduct a market assessment and provide guidance for them to develop a specialty pharmacy program within UnityPoint’s Home Care business unit.

UnityPoint at Home reports data through Excelera’s proprietary data platform which has allowed them to gain access to five limited distribution drugs through the network. Their specialty pharmacy program is now dual accredited and is executing on their growth plan across the UnityPoint Health System.
