About EVERSANA’s Rare Disease Expertise
With over 7,000 distinct rare and genetic diseases affecting 400+ million individuals, the average time to diagnosis still remains approximately 7 years. In response, EVERSANA has developed innovative, end-to-end strategies to assure patients are identified, diagnosed, onboarded and remain adherent to their treatment plans.
Rare and orphan drug manufacturers are becoming increasingly aware that new models and new approaches are needed for a successful product launch. With experience in 25 disease states, EVERSANA™ COMPLETE Commercialization is uniquely positioned to remove friction in commercialization to enable an accelerated path to market introduction for critical therapies. Powered by artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML) and Data & Analytics, our end-to-end model supplies predictive analytics to reach patients, improves access to therapy and facilitates positive outcomes.
By leveraging data and AI capabilities of ACTICS by EVERSANA™ across the patient journey, EVERSANA can predict patient switching behaviors that impact adherence and engagement. This information also powers the optimization of our hub and affordability programs and deploys the “next best action” for each patient, leading to up to a 50% patient adherence improvement over a traditional hub program.
EVERSANA’s patient services models simplify and expedite the patient journey. Our hub accelerates patient onboarding by supplying real time eligibility determination, self-enrollment with support options, ePa electronic benefit verification (eBV), (ePA), co-pay eligibility and e-prescribing. Our specialty pharmacy model connects patients, providers and payers to offer direct-to-patient dispensing and administration. In addition, data-driven patient profiling can determine customized outreach to provide education and deliver white-glove support to patients, driving brand loyalty and adherence.
About EVERSANA’s Access and Hub
EVERSANA’s team of experts leverage technology and automation to reduce access and affordability barriers, simplify onboarding and get patients on therapy faster, ultimately reducing frustrations and driving therapy adoption.
For example, when a prescriber has selected a given therapy for a patient, several factors can create delays or barriers in getting the patient on therapy including formulary tier status, prior authorization or step therapy requirements, labor-intensive coverage appeals and more. Similarly, the network of specialty pharmacies managing specialty medications has narrowed in recent years. Working with specialty pharmacies to enable swift delivery of prescribed therapies often requires intervention by skilled experts.
To help streamline the prescribing process, a program with a careful combination of high-tech programs and high-touch support should be implemented with embedded digital tools and easy access to experts who can jump in when needed to help address patient needs.
Technology-based solutions both automate and streamline repetitive tasks such as digital interventions — which may include electronic benefit verification, streamlined patient enrollment into a product hub, co-pay assistance and more. In addition, many patients and caregivers may have questions or require assistance along their journey to treatment. Having highly trained support resources readily available who can pick up the phone and interact with physicians, payers and specialty pharmacies, can help patients effectively navigate the processes, paperwork and protocols associated with a particular specialty therapy.
About EVERSANA’s Specialty Pharmacy
EVERSANA’s deep-rooted connection between hub, specialty pharmacy and direct-to-patient dispensing services allows therapies to be supplied to patients quickly and effectively. Each Specialty Pharmacy program takes a high-touch, white gloves support approach and is individually tailored to best manage inventory, payer relationships, cash flow and wraparound patient service needs.
Our innovative model begins at the HUB, streamlining onboarding activities and offering support to patients navigating access barriers to ensure their access to therapy. Integrated with our specialty pharmacy program, therapies can quickly be delivered to patients at the necessary site of care, including convenient direct-to-patient dispensing and administration. After patients receive therapies, one point of contact is available for patients to share their experiences and ongoing monitoring and active outreach occurs to promote adherence.
