Trellis Rx is a technology-enabled service provider that partners with health systems to fund, build, and operate world-class specialty pharmacies on their behalf, with their brand. Trellis enables health systems to deliver enhanced experiences and outcomes by helping them offer concierge level clinical and administrative support to patients throughout their course of therapy. We believe pharmacists and pharmacy technicians are critical additions to the care team and that an exceptional pharmacy team makes superior results possible.

Trellis is seeking highly motivated and customer service-oriented pharmacy professionals who want to elevate their career to the next level. We are currently conducting a search for a Pharmacy Liaison to join a growing team of colleagues at our customer site, United Health Services Hospital in Binghamton, NY, to provide outstanding service to patients with complex, specialty diseases to help them achieve improved clinical outcomes.

    • Overseeing services provided to enrolled patients – ensuring that everything from order entry to final verification is completed quickly, accurately, and in accordance with patient’s needs
  • Providing direct support to enrolled patients to ensure that they are supported throughout their therapy regimen and achieve their intended outcome. This includes:
    • Conducting outbound phone calls for patient support, adherence checks, and refill reminders
    • Accepting inbound calls from patients, as needed and sharing in on call coverage to ensure 24/7 patient support
    • Appropriately triaging any clinical questions to an appropriate clinician (pharmacist, nurse, or provider)
  • Designing clinic workflows to help our customer deliver the Trellis experience to patients and developing new and improved processes for efficient, safe fulfillment of specialty medications
  • Participating in conferences and workshops to help promote Trellis Rx

 Here’s what we’d like to offer to you:
