This week it’s all about bringing attention to psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis as we close in on World Psoriasis Day: Thursday, October 29th. For more than a decade, the International Federation of Psoriasis Associations have sought to raise awareness about psoriasis each year on this day.
Of course, it’s about more than just awareness alone.
World Psoriasis Day is also about:
- Sharing information. There are so many myths and far too much misinformation about psoriasis. Patients and the greater community have a lot to learn about this disease.
- Research. From topicals to orals and biologics, there have never been more treatment options for patients. Although there is still no cure for psoriasis, existing treatments have expanded lately plus there’s numerous promising medications in the research pipeline poised to become available in the next year or so. Some that we’re keeping our eye on include the biologics bimekizumab and mirikizumab, both of which are currently in Phase 3 testing.
- Treatment access. Treatment access is where BioPlus Specialty Pharmacy really shines, as demonstrated by the ‘Power of 2’: our 2 hour, 2 day, 2 click, 2gether promise. In short, patient access is our ‘why’ and the Power of 2 is our ‘how’ of getting that important work accomplished. The 2 Hour Patient Acceptance Guarantee™ ensures notification to physician offices in less than two hours whether a referred patient is accepted for treatment or not. After that, prescriptions move to the 2 Day Ready 2 Ship™ process. Throughout this process, our patient financial assistance department helps ensure that financial issues never stand in the way of patient treatment. And, it takes patients only 2 clicks to refill their prescriptions online (for qualifying prescriptions). Let the BioPlus team help your patients access the medications they need for psoriasis.
