The Customer

The customer is a leading pharma company focused on improving clinical outcomes in patients by developing and commercializing innovative therapies. It wanted a partner to design and operationalize innovative patient support programs (PSPs) that could improve medicine access, affordability, and adherence among patients suffering from conditions such as heart failure, cancer, retinal disorders, and so on.

Challenges

  1. Complex financial roadblocks limiting medication access and affordability coupled with subpar medication adherence leading to undesired side effects and poor outcomes

  2. Operational challenges in administering programs catering to diverse therapeutic areas, resulting in a disjointed patient experience

  3. Limited awareness about treatment efficacy and side effects among patients

The Solution

Indegene organized awareness clinics and webinars coupled with tele- and inperson counselling services to educate patients and caregivers. To enhance treatment affordability, we collaborated with private and government funding bodies to formulate innovative financial schemes and reimbursement systems.

We then devised a digital PSP mobile app to improve symptom monitoring and boost therapy adherence. We also collaborated with online pharmacies to create an order management system, which ensured easy medicine procurement and delivery.

Finally, we initiated robust adverse events reporting and reconciliation processes coupled with source data verification (SDV) for all the PSPs to ensure compliance with regulatory guidelines.
