Request for Public Comment on ASHP Recommendations for Specialty Pharmacy Practice in Hospitals and Health Systems

Specialty Pharmacy Summit


ASHP welcomes comments from ASHP members and other qualified individuals on the recommendations from the ASHP Specialty Pharmacy State of Practice in Hospitals and Health Systems – Future Directions Summit held February 1-4, 2021.

Recommendations were developed based on a rigorous consensus building process conducted prior to and during the summit. During this 3-day event, invited participants discussed, developed, and refined recommendations to support outcomes-focused, aspirational best practices for health-system specialty pharmacy. Recommendations supported by 80% or more of the summit participants are provided for public comment.

Recommendations take into account the inaugural ASHP National Survey of Health-System Specialty Pharmacy Practice, guidance from the Summit Steering Committee and the Section of Specialty Pharmacy Practitioners’ Executive Committee, ASHP's PAI 2030, and other patient care, practice model, and marketplace trends.

ASHP is seeking comments in the following areas of (1) clarity of the recommendations, (2) recommendations that should be considered higher levels of priority, and (3) opinions on how particular recommendations can be most effectively achieved.

ASHP requests feedback on the recommendations by 11:59 p.m. ET on March 17.

All feedback will be evaluated and taken into consideration to develop final recommendations that will be presented to the ASHP Board of Directors.  

Thank you for providing this important feedback.
