A Deep-dive Into Specialty Pharma

A specialty drug is a class of prescription medications used to treat complex, chronic or rare medical conditions. Although this classification was originally intended to define the treatment of rare, also termed “orphan” diseases, affecting fewer than 200,000 people in the US, more recently, specialty drugs have emerged as the cornerstone of treatment for chronic and complex diseases such as cancer, autoimmune conditions, diabetes, hepatitis C, and HIV/AIDS.

In-House Health seeks to restore sustainability to nursing. It has officially launched its AI-driven scheduling and management platform for modern nursing teams. The health tech company, founded in 2023, recently raised $4 million in seed funding led by NEA and TMV, with pre-seed investment from Vine Ventures and Longevity Venture Partners.

In-House’s AI algorithm is trained on millions of patient records to identify patterns of bedside care and anticipate shift changes. The algorithm can shorten hours spent on scheduling by half or more and reduce labor costs by over 10% across-the-board, amid the growing crisis of workforce shortage and spiraling costs to deliver care.
