Speed to therapy

The sooner patients start treatment, the better. Our nationwide specialty network provides fast, convenient access to specialty medications, including a wide range of limited distribution drugs (LDDs), within two days—often sooner.

Focus on outcomes

Better health outcomes require adherence. That's why we provide digital adherence tools and services to help keep your patients on track. Walgreens Connected Care® for rheumatology is one way we work with you to keep patients engaged—using clinical insights to educate and empower patients throughout treatment.

Financial assistance coordination

Lack of financial resources is a common barrier to care. To help patients struggling to afford critical medications, we can connect them to advocacy groups, local community organizations, drug manufacturers and other sources of financial aid.

Joining forces to improve rheumatology care

Collaboration is essential for breaking down barriers to care. Walgreens works with organizations such as CreakyJoints, part of the Global Healthy Living Foundation's arthritic patient community, to give patients greater access to care for rheumatic diseases and other chronic conditions. That includes enhanced training for our specialty pharmacists and educational resources for patients.
