Who we are
Accessa manages a new generation of patient support programs (PSP).
Established by the Quebec’s owner pharmacists through the Association québécoise des pharmaciens propriétaires (AQPP), Accessa’s mission is to deploy the most accessible, effective and ethical patient support programs in order to meet the rapid growth of specialty drug prescriptions and the growing needs of patients for complex therapeutic follow-ups.
Accessa’s goal is to democratize access to specialty drugs for patients suffering from chronic or rare diseases so that they can benefit from comprehensive treatment management by their own pharmacist, the healthcare professional who is most familiar with their medication history.
By relying on a large network of highly qualified community pharmacists in all regions, Accessa allows Quebecers to benefit from the proximity of their pharmacist in order to optimize their treatment.

Proximity with Patients
Choosing your pharmacist is a right that is protected by law! At Accessa, we make things easier by allowing all pharmacists to participate in our programs and all patients to choose their pharmacist: the healthcare professional who is most familiar with their medication history and with whom they have established a relationship of trust. Patients can count on the accessibility of their medication expert and the pharmacy team to obtain advice and to support them in the challenges associated with complex therapies.
Proximity with Pharmacists
Local pharmacies are at the heart of patients' communities throughout the province. By managing patient support programs across all pharmacies in Quebec, Accessa builds upon the proximity that exists between patient and pharmacist to improve the quality of services offered to patients struggling with complex diseases.
Proximity with doctors
Accessa makes it possible to leverage the unique and complementary relationship between the pharmacist and the physician: two healthcare professionals who share a thorough understanding of the treatment and the issues that may arise. We encourage increased collaboration, which maximizes the quality of follow-up with patients, streamlines the circle of care and promotes continuity of treatment.
Proximity with Pharmaceutical Companies
By being at the very heart of the patient care system, we collaborate with pharmaceutical companies to offer programs that comply with Quebec laws and regulations. Thanks to our innovative technological infrastructure, we are able to collect accurate, anonymized data and perform pertinent analyses to support treatment optimization.

How it works
The Accessa Journey
A patient is prescribed a specialty medication following the diagnosis of a rare, serious or chronic disease.
Patient' pharmacy of choice
The patient chooses his pharmacist, the healthcare professional who is most familiar with their medication history and with whom they have established a relationship of trust. The doctor or pharmacist enrolls the patient in the PSP.
- In collaboration with the treating physician, the pharmacist provides comprehensive patient care and oversight of the treatment. The pharmacist is the main point of contact for the patient under the PSP.
Treatment monitoring and progress
- The pharmacy team (pharmacist, nurse or technician) documents the interventions in the CURO platform in order to follow the progress of the treatment.
Patient financial support
Patients benefit from personalized support to navigate the reimbursement process with their insurers and their requests for financial support when applicable, so that they can focus on their treatment.
