2013 Armada Specialty Pharmacy Summit Reports Record Attendance

FLORHAM PARK, N.J., May 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Armada Health Care (Armada) is the nation's largest specialty pharmacy group purchasing and channel management organization. On May 7-10, 2013, Armada hosted its 9th Annual Specialty Pharmacy Summit at the Wynn Hotel in Las Vegas, NV.  Attendance at this year's event far exceeded previous gatherings with more than 2,200 industry stakeholders present. Participates included specialty pharmacy owners, directors and purchasing agents along with broad market representation from executives of hundreds of specialty pharmaceutical and biotech manufacturers, national drug wholesalers and distributors, Payers & PBMs, and many other industry vendors.

"This year marked our 9th annual Specialty Pharmacy Summit and we were deeply gratified to see the amazing year-over-year growth in attendance and participation that our annual business Summit continues to draw," stated Armada CEO, Lawrence Irene , RPh. He continued, "Armada delivers unique and valuable solutions to meet the needs of our specialty pharmacy and manufacturer partners, many of which we showcased during the 2013 Summit. The expansion of our already robust services is a natural progression for our vast and growing specialty pharmacy member network. It includes hundreds of specialty pharmacy corporations with thousands of locations and billions of dollars of specialty pharmacy spend in the post-launch specialty pharmaceutical market. We continue to make significant investments in both technology and resources in our core business that now includes a full service HUB program which ensures optimal and comprehensive patient onboarding.  And, we are proud to offer a seamlessly integrated clinical and cognitive service through Armada's URAC accredited call center.  The addition of our national Managed Specialty Network provides a turn-key, scalable solution for HUB and non-HUB customers alike."

One of the many attractions to this year's Armada meeting was the introduction of the Specialty Pharmacy Association of America (SPAARx). With nearly 3,500 new members, this independent, national association has quickly become the nation's largest professional association representing the broad interests of the specialty pharmacy industry.  

The 2014 Armada Summit is again planned at the Wynn Hotel Conference Center in Las Vegas and will mark its 10 year anniversary. The 2014 Summit is scheduled for May 5-8, 2014 and promises to be the largest annual Armada Specialty Pharmacy Summit and Expo to date.
