Medco to Advance Cancer Care with Personalized and Specialized Treatment for Oncology Patients
Date:1/20/2010

WHITESTOWN, Ind., Jan. 20 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Medco Health Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: MHS) today announced the launch of the Medco Therapeutic Resource Center® (TRC) for oncology patients headquartered in Whitestown, Ind., where specialist pharmacists will manage the company's more than 850,000 patients currently living with cancer, one of the fastest growing segments of healthcare.

The new oncology TRC consists of nearly 150 specialist pharmacists and more than 250 support personnel who will actively participate in the care of cancer patients, identify treatment gaps and address quality of life issues, such as managing side effects of their drugs.  The innovative approach places pharmacists in a more central role in improving health outcomes for patients with common forms of cancer, such as breast and prostate cancers, patients with benign and malignant hematologic conditions, and special needs populations, such as children with cancer.  

Consolidating both traditional and specialty pharmacy oncology medications and organized into teams focused on various tumor treatments, Medco oncology specialist pharmacists will review anti-cancer regimens that include oral cancer medications and supportive therapies, such as anti-nausea treatments and erythropoietin stimulating agents (ESAs).  Pharmacists will oversee the patients' drug therapies holistically, ensuring adequate attention to medication safety and other medical conditions besides cancer. Medco will be incorporating oncology clinical expertise from its specialty pharmacy, Accredo Health, and its TRC in Willingboro, NJ.
