IntegriChain and ProMetrics Form Strategic Partnership to Deliver First Guided Analytics Solution for Specialty Pharmacy Channel Management
Factory-to-Patient View Radically Improves the Actionability of Channel Data for Specialty Pharmaceutical Manufacturers
Philadelphia, PA, October 26, 2016 – IntegriChain, a rapidly growing healthcare technology company focused on channel management for life sciences suppliers, today announced a strategic partnership with ProMetrics, a leader in longitudinal patient-level data aggregation, to deliver the industry’s first guided analytics solution for specialty channel management, patient service model design, and patient access optimization. These guided analytics are designed to provide specialty pharmaceutical manufacturers with actionable data-driven insights to improve the patient journey from the patient’s first prescription throughout their course of therapy.
The new guided analytics offering for specialty pharmacy delivers a single view from factory to patient, dramatically improving the actionability of longitudinal Anonymized Patient-Level Data (APLD) for account managers, brand directors, and patient access leadership. The data model utilized in this offering maximizes KPI accuracy and granularity, providing manufacturers with clear and accurate indicators of channel performance. The offering builds on the strengths of both companies, providing rich analytics and visualizations for brand teams charged with setting commercial strategy, together with intuitive tools for field sales and reimbursement specialists to pull through specialty scripts with providers. The offering also includes a robust mobile KPI experience for specialty pharmacy account managers responsible for maximizing the effectiveness of the pharmacy network.
“This strategic partnership combines IntegriChain’s pharmacy and distribution data aggregation and its guided analytics expertise with ProMetrics’ specialty pharma domain expertise and best-in-class APLD insights to fill a significant gap for the specialty market,” said Kevin Leininger, CEO of IntegriChain. “Most specialty manufacturers have product portfolios that are distributed through multiple channels. Patients access many of their individual products through diverse pharmacy settings and sites of care. Never before have specialty pharma manufacturers had a single analytics platform that encompasses all of their channels – specialty pharmacy, specialty distribution, full-line wholesale, and retail.”
“Over the past decade, ProMetrics has spearheaded the industry’s adoption of specialty pharmacy data aggregation and longitudinal de-identification,” said Marc Duey, President and CEO of ProMetrics. “Now specialty brand teams and their partners in account management and the field team are looking to maximize the value of the data through analytics. Our joint offering with IntegriChain will deliver these teams the actionable insights they need to fully realize that value.”
