Las Vegas, Nev. — April 30, 2019 – EVERSANA™, the leading independent provider of global services to the life science industry, and OptimizeRx Corp. (NASDAQ: OPRX), a leading digital health messaging platform focused on affordability and adherence, today announced their partnership to modernize the patient experience and improve health outcomes by combining a real-time electronic health records (EHR) network with customized, wraparound patient support services.
The partnership will improve patient access and adherence challenges as biologic and biosimilar development brings more expensive specialty drugs to market. OptimizeRx’s real-time EHR network will seamlessly integrate into EVERSANA’s patient support and specialty distribution models to expedite the process from diagnosis and enrollment to affordability solutions and ongoing patient support.
“Precision medicine demands precision patient support that’s only achieved when you leverage powerful technology with the personalized patient and provider services at the point of care,” said EVERSANA CEO Jim Lang. “We’re combining our services to help healthcare providers deliver efficient quality care and help manufacturers get their therapies to patients faster with long-term adherence support.”
“Combining high tech and high touch is needed to deal with today’s landscape of specialty drugs and complex therapies,” says Will Febbo, CEO of OptimizeRx. “We’re delighted to combine our broad EHR network with EVERSANA’s services to digitally modernize patient support services.”
The EHR and patient support service integration will drastically reduce the need for manual, paper based processing, expedite enrollments, quickly identify affordability and copay programs, and drive proactive adherence support services offered by both the provider and specialty HUB services.
