IntegriChain Acquires Federal Compliance Solutions, Creating Pharma’s Deepest Contracts & Pricing and Gross-to-Net Advisory and Outsourcing Team  

Combined entity bolsters expertise to help Pharma optimize commercial performance in the face of mounting regulatory and commercial pressures on net revenue 

Philadelphia, PA, July 9, 2024 – IntegriChain, delivering pharma’s comprehensive technology, data, consulting, and outsourcing platform for data-driven commercialization, today announced the acquisition of Federal Compliance Solutions (FCS), a leading Pharma advisory and managed services firm. This transaction creates the industry’s deepest team of experts in government pricing and payer/provider contracting, areas that have simultaneously become more outsourced in Pharma and the focus of significant regulatory and commercial changes. The combination builds on the technology, people, and process capabilities that the two firms have developed to help the industry develop more profitable drug commercialization strategies, drive more profitable daily business decisioning, and improve net revenue controls around growing price concessions to payers, providers, and channels. 

“As drug pricing and reimbursement have grown increasingly complicated, more and more Pharma manufacturers have embraced outsourcing options where service providers perform price calculations and adjudicate rebates and chargebacks on their behalf,” said Josh Halpern, CEO of IntegriChain. “This is a dynamic market with rapidly changing regulations, vertically integrating ecosystems, and increasingly diverse drug archetypes. IntegriChain and FCS together support more than 200 manufacturer’s contracts and pricing, gross-to-net, channel, and data operations with outsourcing solutions. We know that the success of the outsourcing model rides on delivering differentiated expertise to our customers, and doing so proactively. That’s hard to do without depth.  We welcome FCS to our extensive organization of more than 200 experts across our Strategy Consulting, Advisory Services, SaaS & BPaaS, and Product & Technology – all of whom proudly represent the leading team focused on improving the profitability of drug commercialization.”

“Now more than ever, Pharma companies need a trusted partner – both to guide commercialization decisioning as well as to drive technological efficiencies,” said Rick Moore, Managing Partner of FCS. “FCS has proven its trusted status through our focus on domain knowledge and quality. IntegriChain has established itself as a proven data and technology innovator, combining forces with others to create a leading net revenue management outsourcing and consulting capability. We are excited to join IntegriChain’s family and platform and look forward to our combined teams continuing to partner with Pharma manufacturers of all sizes and types and driving innovation in contracts & pricing and gross-to-net.” 

The companies plan to jointly advance their portfolio of solutions and consultative services for today’s top commercial challenges, including increasingly complicated drug contracting, 340B’s explosive growth, the Inflation Reduction Act’s impact on pricing and reimbursement, and rapidly evolving drug distribution channels.

For the foreseeable, there will be no changes to IntegriChain’s nor FCS’s Advisory Services delivery teams, systems, or processes. In 2025, the combined company will work to integrate the Advisory Services and BPaaS offerings in the ICyte Platform, driving innovation to deliver best-in-class offerings. 

Under terms of the agreement, IntegriChain acquired the equity of Federal Compliance Solutions LLC. The entire leadership and professional team will join IntegriChain’s global workforce that spans nearly 750 professionals. This acquisition is IntegriChain’s seventh expansion. Fairmount Partners acted as exclusive financial advisor to FCS.
