Supporting health care professionals

How the HUB can help

The HUB can support biologic treatment for patients of:

  • Family physicians
  • Endocrinologists

  • Rheumatologists
  • Neurologists
  • Dermatologists
  • Cardiologists
  • Respirologists
  • Hepatologists

Timely initiation of biologic/specialty medications

We work collaboratively with insurers and patient support programs to secure coverage as quickly as possible.

Reduce clinic workload

The HUB provides dedicated resources for patient support so treatment can begin quickly. We provide ongoing follow-up to avoid interruption in therapy. This includes:

  • Completion of special authorization insurance forms
  • Collaborating with Patient Support Programs for bridging therapy and co-pay assistance as required
  • Coordination and initiation of yearly renewals and bloodwork reminders

How the HUB helps patients

  • Patient onboarding and training for new drugs, injections and disease/medication education
  • Regular patient follow-ups to monitor for efficacy, safety and compliance
  • Ongoing injection services for people with needle phobia
  • Communication to all members of the health care team

Vaccination support

Our prescribing pharmacists are able to assess, prescribe and inject adult vaccinations based on guidelines and medication requirements, all in one appointment. This includes shingles vaccine, Pneumovax-23 and Prevnar. See the full list of vaccinations.

Going beyond biologics

Calgary Co-op’s Specialty HUB goes beyond just medication support. We also have a full team of clinical pharmacists providing a range of services from weight management, tobacco cessation, diabetes health and more.
