Avella Specialty Pharmacy recently launched an e-commerce platform to simplify orders for compounded products — featuring user-friendly, secure web access and streamlining ophthalmologists’ online tasks.
Practitioners can store payment information and call up order histories for easy refills, company spokespersons said. Additionally, the platform offers a customizable shipping procedure, enhancing efficiency. Avella’s system is PCI compliant and adaptive to tablets and mobile devices.
The ophthalmology-centered program is a first for the compounding industry and joins Avella’s other additional newer services released in 2017.
"Avella is dedicated to investing in best-in-class technology to empower our customers as they look for ways to save time, reduce administrative hassles and improve their clinical workflow," William Pomerleau, Avella's vice president of IT, said. "This new e-commerce platform is one part of our focus on improving the entire customer experience for all of the organizations and people we serve, including care providers, hospitals, payers, manufacturers and patients."
From its hub in Phoenix, Avella is a National Accredited Specialty Pharmacy. In 2015, Inc. Magazine ranked Avella as the nation’s fastest-growing, woman-led company and among all fastest-growing, privately owned firms.
In 2016, the National Association of Specialty Pharmacies named Avella its Specialty Pharmacy of the Year.
