Better pharmacy care for patients undergoing transplants

Strict adherence to a medication regimen is essential for the long-term success of an organ transplant. Walgreens specialty pharmacy teams are specially trained to support patients undergoing a transplant, from pre-op to post-op care. Your patients get access to critical immunosuppressant drugs and supportive therapies through organ transplant-specialized pharmacies and retail locations. We also work with your team to help manage potential complications and medication side effects, monitor for polypharmacy risks and comorbidities, and maintain patients' overall health.

Pharmacist expertise

To prevent transplant rejection and other complications, patients who undergo an organ transplant need support for life. Walgreens specialty pharmacy teams are trained in organ transplant care to help your patients adhere to a strict treatment regimen, manage the potential side effects of immunosuppressants and avoid infections.

Speed to therapy

Timely access to drugs is crucial for transplant recipients. At Walgreens, they get fast, convenient access to specialty medications in two days, often sooner. And our multichannel fulfillment model gives patients flexibility, allowing them to opt for bedside delivery, express pickup or home delivery of their medications, where applicable.

Focus on outcomes

A successful organ transplant requires adherence. That’s why we provide digital tools to help keep patients on track. We also provide proactive patient care, contacting patients five days before their refills are due. Walgreens has a higher proportion of patients who are adherent to their immunosuppressant medications* than all other retail pharmacies combined.†1

Holistic patient view

Every healthcare journey is different, and Walgreens specialty pharmacies are in a unique position to support your patients and your care team throughout the patient journey. With visibility into multiple aspects of care, we can help patients manage their conditions, potential medication side effects and comorbidities before, during and after their transplant procedures.

Financial assistance coordination

Lack of financial resources is a common barrier to care. For patients struggling to afford critical medications, we facilitate connections to advocacy groups, drug manufacturers and other sources of financial aid, including the Children's Organ Transplant Association, Help Hope Live, the National Foundation for Transplants and the National Marrow Donor Program for eligible patients.


Working together to improve lives

Through collaboration, we're helping save and improve lives. Walgreens works with Donate Life America to increase donor registrations, plus organizations such as the Children's Organ Transplant Association and United Network for Organ Sharing toconduct studies on adherence. We also work with Medline to offer free transplant kits to new transplant recipients.
