How to Reduce Costs of Specialty Pharmaceutical Shipments and Increase Patient Satisfaction

Temptime Corporation

The specialty pharmacy industry could reduce costs by $27.5 million annually (product and call center staff costs only) if visual temperature indicators were used as decision-making tools to determine if medicine should be used or returned when patients suspect heat damage.
