We keep our finger on the pulse of your patient assistance program with the goal of ensuring a positive experience for everyone involved: manufacturers, healthcare providers and ultimately, patients.
Specialty nursing for complex therapies
Patients receive care from highly specialized nurses specifically trained on the medications they administer and their related medical conditions. All nurses are Basic Life Support (BLS) certified, and all nurses in our infusion clinics are (ACLS) certified. All nurses receive ongoing education to ensure the highest quality of care.
Nurses working with oncology patients also receive training through our partnership with the de Souza Institute.
Reimbursement and financial assistance services
Patients needing specialty drug treatments often need extra support and assistance. Securing coverage for specialty drugs can be confusing for patients and with submission requirements that may vary from payer to payer and province to province. Our patient support team takes extra care to help patients and healthcare providers navigate this process. Our team will assist with public coverage applications and handle special authorization submissions, denials and appeals to private and public payers.
In those cases where insufficient private and public funding creates a financial barrier for patients, we will work with the manufacturers to build automated copay and compassionate use solutions to further support patients. We investigate bridging and financial aid options to ensure patients can start therapy with no administrative delays. We also help drug manufacturers expedite public payer reimbursement and negotiations by leveraging private market data.
Achieve better patient outcomes through data
We design and customize reporting, dashboards and data extracts for manufacturers. We meet with manufacturers to understand their healthcare goals to provide business insight for continuous improvement and to optimize program performance to ultimately deliver the best patient experiences.
Our nurse portal is available to third-party clinics and nurses and allows nurses to complete post-infusion reports and documentation on the spot. It features notification of infusion activity and validation of services performed for billing and audit requirements.
We also design physician portal solutions to allow a one-stop reporting dashboard for healthcare providers. Completely customizable, it enables manufacturers to allow insight into the patient journey.
