Accredo's New Full-Service Specialty Pharmacy Offers Hawaii Residents Greater Access To High-Touch Pharmacy Care


Accredo, a specialty pharmacy that serves people who take medications for complex and rare conditions, today opened a new, full-service pharmacy for residents of Hawaii who require additional clinical and administrative support for their complex treatments and medications.

Located in Ala Moana-Kakaako, Accredo provides high-touch pharmacy care to people with chronic conditions such as multiple sclerosis, cancer and hemophilia.

The new pharmacy will serve all residents of Hawaii whose pharmacy benefit includes Accredo, including AlohaCare, a Hawaii-based, non-profit health plan with more than 65,000 members living on Oahu, Kauai, Molokai, Lanai, Maui and Hawaii Island.

The new pharmacy in Honolulu offers a range of services, including walk-in consultations with a pharmacist, home delivery via courier and mail, and site-of-care (or ambulatory) infusion center with onsite nurses. Oncology treatments and intravenous immunoglobulin will be among the therapies administered onsite.

"Accredo's experience includes more than 30 years managing specialty pharmacy and helping patients with complex conditions access the care they need. Our pharmacists, nurses and care support teams have a unique expertise in the use of complex medications, clinically and administratively, and work with patients and their caregivers to help make the use of these medications as easy as possible," said Brian Seiz, President, Accredo. "We're proud to work alongside AlohaCare and bring these important services to the residents of Hawaii."

Corey Fujii leads the Accredo pharmacy in Honolulu, working with a team of nearly a dozen specialty pharmacy professionals, including pharmacists, nurses, pharmacy technicians, and patient access representatives. The team, including lead pharmacist Quinn Taira, are long-time Hawaii residents with experience in health care and a passion for serving the needs of the people of Hawaii.

"As AlohaCare's preferred specialty pharmacy, Accredo is improving access to specialty pharmacy services for members and providers across the state," said Gary Okamoto, M.D., Chief Medical Officer, AlohaCare. "We strive to provide the most innovative and convenient care possible for our members. Working with Accredo, we are improving access to quality care for all of Hawaii."

Accredo has a unique clinical model with pharmacists, nurses and other care support professionals working in Therapeutic Resource Centers®, which are condition-specific practices that allow the care teams to become experts in a condition and the therapies that treat that condition, thus providing more comprehensive and more personalized patient care. In addition to the Honolulu-based team, Accredo pharmacy customers have access to multiple resources to manage their condition, including an additional 500 specialty pharmacists via phone and video conference, nutrition counseling and social work support, and complete coordination of care between the medical benefit, pharmacy benefit and physicians.

In addition to its care model, Accredo offers the nation's broadest access to therapies with exclusive or limited distribution. With expertise in treating some of the rarest diseases, Accredo also brings access to the latest in innovative medicine, including the first gene therapies used to treat hereditary blindness and spinal muscular atrophy.

Located in one of Honolulu's landmark buildings at 677 Ala Moana Boulevard, the pharmacy is open Monday-Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 5 p.m.
