IRVING, Texas, November 30, 2021 / PRNewswire / – Loopback Analytics and Acentrus Specialty have established a new collaboration that will focus on capturing and sharing data to develop therapy-specific best practices. The Therapy Specific Outcomes Coalition (TSOC) is a collaborative initiative of the main specialist pharmacies in the country’s health system. TSOC will bring together participating healthcare system specialist pharmacies around a common goal of accessing payers’ networks and limited distribution drugs (LDDs) while developing best practices and concrete evidence studies.
“Combining the scale of the network and Acentrus’ expertise with Loopback’s common data platform allows us to articulate large-scale results and respond to an unmet need in the sector”, said Chris Hatwig, president of Apexus.
