MORRISVILLE, N.C., Jan. 17, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- TrialCard Incorporated, an industry leader in access, affordability, adherence, and engagement solutions for patients and healthcare providers, today announced the acquisition of RxSolutions, a company that specializes in customized pharmaceutical reimbursement programs for both commercial and clinical supply professionals.
In addition to traditional pharmaceutical co-pay programs, RxSolutions has introduced the RxStudy Card™, a revolutionary way to streamline supply management for pharmaceutical manufacturers conducting clinical trials. The RxStudy Card saves the sponsor one-third or more of the cost of open label study components by allowing patients to obtain unblinded medications and supplies at trusted retail and specialty pharmacies.
The acquisition will fortify TrialCard's presence within the pharmaceutical solutions marketplace while diversifying its customer base and expanding into the clinical trial space. RxSolutions customers will benefit from TrialCard's market access capabilities and state-of-the-art technology. In December 2018, TrialCard achieved the coveted ISO 27001 certification, the gold standard in data security. TrialCard also offers TC Synapse™, a full suite of risk mitigation and compliance solutions, which includes co-pay accumulator program mitigation and pharmacy fraud detection.
"We are excited to announce this agreement, which brings together two well-respected, Triangle-based organizations," said Mark Bouck, President and CEO of TrialCard. "This acquisition advances TrialCard's vision to diversify and enhance our service offerings to our customers. We are very impressed with the business that RxSolutions has built and the culture they have maintained.
