Express Scripts Launches Virtual Coaching To Help Patients Better Understand Therapy
Date:8/16/2012

"Patients with diseases such as hepatitis C, autoimmune disorders, hemophilia and multiple sclerosis can benefit from knowing as much as possible about their illness, their medication and any potential side effects.
