ABSTRACT
The article discusses the report of the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP) on patients' care and specialty drug suppliers. The report is made to analyze the effects of specialty suppliers on patient's care, determine factors affecting the practice, and present measures to respond issues on pharmacy practice and patients' care. The report shows that using drugs of specialty pharmacies and distributors may minimize the ability of patients' health systems to have continuous care.
