Our Story

 We are a group of pharmacists and pharmacy experts who have "been there and done that" through real-world experiences.  Each Degaje consultant and subject matter expert has at least 20 years of pharmacy-related experience.


Pharmacy is one of the most complicated and misunderstood businesses in the United States. Pharmacists are often underutilized and undervalued.  The pharmaceutical industry is much maligned and frequently bashed by politicians, the media, and often the patients they serve. Today's breakthrough medicines and life-changing therapies require a new approach that engages patients and their caregivers in totally new ways.  Patients have essentially become consumers and have different needs and expectations of manufacturers, pharmacies, and pharmacists.  Our team of subject matter experts can help navigate these changes, expand the role of the pharmacist, and help improve patient outcomes. 

Healthcare leaders consult with Degaje to provide unique scientific, clinical, and business insights when they need them.  We are a boutique firm that focuses on specific short term project work with defined expectations and timelines. Although we seek long term relationships, we do not strive to become embedded in your organization.  We help you understand the entire healthcare industry and create opportunities for patients to benefit from your products and services. 

We have assembled an orchestra of pharmacy professionals from all areas of pharmacy practice, practice sites, and the pharmaceutical industry.  When necessary, we will invite an individual with special talents and expertise to join us to serve you.  Using a team concept, we take a holistic approach to understand your unique needs and then provide a comprehensive solution to help you make it happen.
