SUWANEE, Ga., Jan. 3, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- With the close of 2018, United Pharmacy Partners ("UPPI") celebrates its 20th
Since its founding, UPPI members have been dedicated to providing nuclear imaging services to patients across the country, from urban centers like New York to the rural desert of West Texas. During that time, UPPI members have provided more than 25 million doses of individual patient prepared radiopharmaceuticals for use in nuclear imaging tests and treatments. We have saved tens of thousands of lives by helping in early detection of cancer, cardiac issues and other medical challenges, facilitating early treatment, and have saved thousands more by making life-saving drugs available at costs and in places that others could not accomplish.
UPPI members have seen their collective revenues and share of the nuclear imaging market grow from 12% to more than 20% as a result of UPPI's committed leadership and engagement.
UPPI has also been instrumental in working with hospitals and other clients to keep cost increases down and even reduce expenses by providing collective purchasing power.
Some notable milestones that UPPI has achieved include:
The capstone achievement, however, was receiving the Vizient 2017 Distributor of the Year award3 for "helping [Vizient's] members provide exceptional, cost effective care." This distinction was the first-time award to a radiopharmaceutical supplier, and recognizes the value, ingenuity and innovation that UPPI Members provide to providers and patients across the country.
"We are very proud to receive the Vizient 2017 Distributor of the Year award," said John Witkowski President UPPI. "This distinct recognition underscores UPPI's work on solutions to effect strategic and care goals. We are very proud of our efforts to help the patient care continuum."
"The first 20 years has been extraordinarily successful to UPPI and our Members," concluded President Witkowski. "We look forward to the next twenty years as we continue to develop strategies for the launch of radiotheranostics and improvements in reimbursements of costs to the hospital imaging community."
