BOSTON and SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 4, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --Deloitte and Vineti Inc. today announced that they have entered into a teaming agreement, announcing their intent to work together to support life sciences innovators by integrating and scaling their respective supply chain and patient engagement platforms to enable more efficient access to next-generation cellular therapies. Vineti's cell and gene therapy platform provides a digital "platform of record" for individualized therapies and Deloitte's ConvergeHEALTH Patient Connect™ platform streamlines and improves patient and health system engagement at pharmaceutical, medical device and hub vendors. Together, the Vineti and ConvergeHEALTH Patient Connect™ platforms can offer a holistic one-stop solution to support life sciences innovators and health care professionals with the information systems to deliver on the promise of personalized medicine.
In individualized medicine, the patient is a key part of the therapeutic process, the product and the treatment. The combination of Vineti's proven expertise in delivering cell and gene therapies and Deloitte's deep knowledge of the health care ecosystem and its time-tested (or something similar) ConvergeHEALTH Patient Connect platform will help enable life sciences innovators to expand the role of personalized medicines in mainstream health care.
"The advancement of truly personalized therapies reinforces not just the belief but the practice that the patient is at the center of therapeutic production, delivery and support," said Amy DuRoss, CEO and co-founder of Vineti. "We are honored to be teaming so closely with Deloitte and looking for opportunities to work with clients where we can integrate our offerings with their ConvergeHEALTH Patient Connect platform. This relationship will lead to holistic end-to-end services that connect automated supply chain workflows with a new level of support to the broader ecosystem and to patients."
"Together, Vineti and ConvergeHEALTH Patient Connect's care pathway support will bring an increasingly interdependent stakeholder group together in support of the patient in real time," DuRoss said. "This can create an opportunity not just for better service and support, but also for better overall patient access, safety and outcomes."
"The shift to value based, personalized health care requires new platforms to support not just the patient, but the myriad stakeholders it takes to deliver these targeted breakthroughs to patients," said Brett Davis, ConvergeHEALTH general manager and principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP. "Realizing the promise of personalized medicine for patients is truly a team sport and we are excited to work with Vineti to address some of the most complex supply chain, workflow and patient engagement challenges to support personalized therapies for our clients."
