Shortage of Contrast for Imaging Services

Because of a global shortage of iodinated contrast material (Omnipaque) caused by temporary overseas manufacturing disruptions, ChristianaCare is taking steps to preserve supply so that it remains available for the most time-sensitive and urgent patient needs. (Learn more in our frequently asked questions.)

Omnipaque contrast is the most widely used contrast material for CT scans and radiographic examinations at ChristianaCare facilities. It is also used for cardiac imaging and interventions, and in the GI lab, Surgicenter and other settings.

The shortage is expected to last several weeks, and likely into the summer months.

Hospitals and health care organizations worldwide are managing the effects of the shortage and the impact to patient care.

ChristianaCare is making every effort to meet the needs of patients who need this product in their procedures. We are working individually with physicians to prioritize those patients with the most urgent needs.

Wherever possible, we are using alternative contrast material and limiting its use to ensure adequate supplies for time sensitive and emergent exams. It is possible that some elective procedures that use this product will need to be delayed.

ChristianaCare will continue to look for options to minimize disruptions created by the shortage, as we serve our community as expert, caring partners in health.

Our Services

Specialty Pharmacy for Complex Medicines

The ChristianaCare Specialty Pharmacy provides medicine for certain complex, ongoing health problems. These medicines need to be closely monitored by a pharmacist for safety reasons. They often need special handling such as cold storage and are usually expensive.

ChristianaCare Specialty Pharmacy is accredited by URAC, showing our commitment to safe, high-quality care.

How to Enroll in the Specialty Pharmacy

To enroll in the program, simply bring your specialty medicine prescription to a ChristianaCare pharmacy.  A member of the pharmacy team will create or update
your pharmacy patient profile.

Your provider can also update your preferred pharmacy and send your prescription to the ChristianaCare Specialty Pharmacy at your next visit.

The program is offered at no extra cost to you. You can opt-out of these services at any time.

URAC Accreditation Seal for Specialty Pharmacy

We Accept Insurance

We’re currently in-network for many drug plans. As part of our service, we coordinate all billing and prescription drug plan claims. We can also help if you cannot afford your medicine.

How the Specialty Pharmacy Works

Personalized care and support
Our pharmacists work with your health care team. They review your health records and your providers’ notes. Using this information, they create a plan specifically for you. Then, a pharmacist will talk to you about your care plan. They will also teach you how to take your medicine.

Shipped directly to your door
As part of our service, medicines can get shipped in secure packaging right to your door.

Answering your questions
If you have any questions, our pharmacists can speak with you on the phone. They can advise you on how to get the best results from your medicine. They can also help to manage any side effects.

Refills
Before you run out of medicine, our team will call you to help set up refills. You can also order a refill by calling the pharmacy at 302-320-2108.

See our Welcome Packet for more details about the Specialty Pharmacy.
