The Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute in Detroit and KSP Specialty Pharmacy have launched a new website — www.ksppharmacy.org.
The new site features provider resources and information for payers and pharmaceutical companies as well as an online portal where patients can refill their prescriptions. This tool also allows patients to see their list of medications, get reminders, and interact with their pharmacist.
A portal for patient education and tips is forthcoming. Additionally, KSP has begun offering non-oncology specialty drugs to serve providers and patients throughout the McLaren Health Care network.
KSP is a specialty pharmacy within the McLaren Health Care Network, serving the needs of patients with complex disease states and high-cost therapeutic treatments. KSP began as an extension of the Barbara Ann Karmanos Cancer Institute in 2019 and has since grown to assist with specialty medication needs of patients throughout the McLaren system in Michigan, Ohio, and Indiana.
KSP also has launched an app to serve patients and providers with the same resources and tools from their phones. The app is available for iPhone and Android phones.
Additionally, the Karmanos ambulatory pharmacy, which provides non-specialty medication, has launched a portal with similar functionality. Those undergoing cancer treatment at Karmanos now can access their prescription information and request refills on the Karmanos pharmacy web page.
“We are continually striving to provide our patients with tools and convenience to help them understand their treatment,” says Stephen Smith, chief pharmacy officer at KSP. “The new website and app will provide the outstanding service we offer over the phone and in person on a new, convenient platform.”
