Begin Story

Making a Big Difference in the Smallest Patient Populations

  • Manufacturers whose products treat rare diseases take on higher complexity, more risk, and a greater purpose – helping patients who have no other treatment options.

  • Streamlining trials takes worldwide infrastructure and local expertise while increasing access to life-changing therapies takes demonstrating clinical and economic value.

  • Ensuring continuity of care takes integrated teams who recognize the barriers and challenges patients face and execute high-touch support services designed to address the needs of the whole patient.

  • Maximizing efficiency takes third-party logistics and tailored distribution strategies from a partner who has played a key role in the North American commercialization of nearly every successful specialty product in the last decade.

  • Patients and caregivers battling with a rare disease understand that every patient matters. So do we.

  • AmerisourceBergen’s Signature™ Commercialization Strategies are designed around individual products and the unique needs of patients, providing end-to-end support for each step of the product and patient journey.

It takes experience, commitment and AmerisourceBergen to ensure your rare disease treatment reaches those who need it most.

Clinical Trial Specialty Logistics

For a patient with a rare disease, their lifeline often starts with a global clinical trial.

Many orphan drug trials require specialized logistics to reach small populations in often geographically challenging locations. Fully integrated GxP-compliant temperature-controlled transport, storage and distribution solutions protect pharmaceuticals requiring cold chain logistics. Efficient management of integrated supply chain logistics improves quality and accountability in transportation, dispensing and storage. Additionally, a strategic partnership with the Medical Research Network offers a highly integrated model for both clinical trials and ongoing home healthcare. Particularly for patients requiring at-home storage, (helping to increase patient recruitment and retention while ensuring the integrity of trial products) technology can make all the difference. The RFID- enabled product storage system CubixxCT® ensures medication utilization and patient-reported outcomes can be tracked during in-home clinical trials, and beyond. The right partner, fully integrated transport, storage and distribution create efficiencies in clinical trials, bringing treatments one step closer to the patient.

Market Access Consulting

For a patient with a rare disease, payer coverage policies can create a barrier to treatment.

By demonstrating incomparable product value and developing a market access strategy that is tailored to the requirements of local decision makers, manufacturers can overcome increased payer scrutiny. This requires a full understanding of the patient journey. Manufacturers must demonstrate how the product fits into the overall treatment experience, including better outcomes and a reduction in the patient’s total cost of care. This takes gathering insights from patients, caregivers and patient advocates who give voice to the unique needs of the patient population. While in parallel collaborating with physician KOLs to understand their awareness for the new treatment, identify factors that may limit utilization, and create plans to overcome any barriers.

Dedicated consultants, with expertise in the U.S., Canada, and key European markets, aid in developing customized strategies that keep these key stakeholders in mind while considering the complex and evolving reimbursement and competitive landscapes specific to orphan products. Additionally, burden-of- illness studies provide credible data that raise payers’ awareness of unmet needs within their own patient populations. With more of the treatment costs shifting to patients, and providers facing more administrative burden than ever before, designing patient and provider support services that make it easier to navigate a complex reimbursement landscape is more critical than ever. Whether it is evolving the product message as real-world data emerges or tapping patient advocates and advisory boards to stay abreast of payer perception and provider education, monitoring and strategic planning must continue post-launch to drive continued product access.

How AmerisourceBergen can help

Patient Access and Adherence

The right advocate relationship makes all the difference for the patient.

Making a difference can start before the product is even available. Because diagnosis and treatment is particularly arduous for patients with a rare disease, expanded access programs offered prior to FDA approval can provide much- needed support. By preparing providers, patients and caregivers with disease state education, as well as access to registries, manufacturers can build a patient base in advance of the launch of an ultra-orphan therapy. Once a treatment decision has been made, patients and their caregivers must turn their attention to overcoming barriers to access and affordability. Knowledgeable advocates who understand the patient journey, the reimbursement landscape for a specific product, and who are empowered to solve problems, serve as a vital lifeline.

Advocates help patients realize the full benefit to customizable patient support by ensuring they are aware of all the services that provide education and advocacy within the rare disease community – improving speed to therapy, streamlining communications, and creating a consistent patient experience by connecting manufacturers, payers, patients and other healthcare stakeholders. They may assist with enrollment into the support program and provide education so patients and caregivers understand a particular therapy and its intended impact on their disease. Advocates also play an important role by providing logistics support for care coordination and free goods product shipments such as first dose, bridge products and patient assistance programs. Additionally, for patients using a provider-administered product, proactive advocates who navigate the access challenges that often accompany site of care changes enable better adherence to therapy.

Specialty Third-Party Logistics

Specialized logistics services accelerate launch timelines for long-awaited treatments while ensuring product is kept in storage and transport.

Specialized logistics offerings, including finished goods warehousing, inventory management, ordering, shipping and financial services, are tailored to enable a seamless journey – improving speed to market, product access, and logistics ROI. Options such as enhanced 3PL services can help mitigate financial risks. Serving as the sole customer, a third-party logistics partner reduces the need for additional staff and increases speed-to-market with nationwide licensing. This maintains manufacturer control of customer relationships and product branding, while protecting and creating visibility to important data. Actionable intelligence enables the right decisions in real time, and that results in a better patient experience.

Access to treatments in all channels – in the hospital, at the physician’s office, or at home – is important for a patient with a rare disease.

As the largest distributor of specialty pharmaceuticals reaching hospitals, physician practices, as well as specialty and retail pharmacies, our commercialization experts have the experience and insights to navigate complex distribution decisions. REMS programs, customized contracts and data solutions are just a few of the options that improve patient safety and enhance visibility to both the patient base and product sales trends. Tailored distribution strategies and patented inventory management technology designed with the patient’s treatment experience in mind improve product access while also achieving cost and logistical efficiencies.

As an example, Cubixx® Solutions technology automates inventory logistics and management functions so healthcare providers benefit from greater efficiency and control. This creates more time for what matters most: patient care. Additionally, an in-home version offers life-saving medications right at the patient’s fingertips.

With the largest collection of specialty physician GPO networks, access is available to thousands of providers across a wide range of specialties. GPO programs raise prescribers’ awareness of breakthrough treatments for rare diseases and enable consistent communication so critical prescribers are aware of not only information related to your products’ indications, but also its coverage, coding, and patient access support programs.

We understand the need for detailed information on quality of care and outcomes measurements to improve the patient experience & communication

Partnerships across AmerisourceBergen further enhance communication between stakeholders, which enhances patient care. In one example, national specialty pharmacy provider US Bioservices partnered with oncology practices a part of the ION Solutions GPO to establish nursing outreach programs that proactively manage patients at key milestones in their therapy. The specialty pharmacy tracks and monitors data, including information pulled from clinical trials, to determine when a patient is likely to experience side effects. The pharmacy then works with oncologists to develop communication and escalation protocols that identify any issues or positive reactions to therapy, all of which is reported back to the practice.

The right technology also plays a key role in improving connectivity between physicians and specialty pharmacy. MyPathpoint is a HIPAA-compliant web portal that provides physicians real-time access to shipment information, prescription status, refill notifications, clinical notes and more. The portal is updated every 15 minutes so physicians can closely monitor patients’ access and ability to adhere to therapy. This proactive approach helps improve both patient adherence and patient outcomes by further reducing gaps in communication.
