These are hospitals that serve a disproportionate number of low income patients. These hospitals receive funding from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid to provide services to uninsured patients. DSH are one of the most common types of hospitals that are eligible to receive drug pricing discounts through the 340B program and to open in-house pharmacies or contract with retail pharmacies to provide these drugs to their patients.
DSH Contract Pharmacies
DSH Contract Pharmacy Hospitals Benefits
Some of the benefits of DSH establishing contract pharmacies is that there is lower financial investment involved, no resources required to staff the pharmacy, and no responsibility to manage the workforce of the pharmacy.

DSH Contract Pharmacy Challenges
Information and Technology provide a great deal of challenge for pharmacies. Contract Pharmacy data and DSH data do not exist in the same location, nor are they integrated in any way. Contract Pharmacies are not “owned” by the DSH. Therefore, the documents and records are not always readily available to the entity that is responsible for them.
Operational challenges involve the detailed process of how your review method incorporates patient and drug data to determine eligibility and track 340B drug usage. Automating the review of the 340B hospital’s data between different locations puts a hospital at great risk of oversight. Strict and tested methods must be used to ensure compliance.
The fact that you are working with an entirely separate entity can make otherwise simple assessments complex and difficult. Implementing Maxor information and technology through The Maxor 340B Program Solution to guide the process can relieve a great deal of stress and work from your hospital.
