LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--RxVantage, the nation’s largest online scheduling system that strives to improve patient outcomes by enhancing the relationship between medical sales representatives and physicians’ offices, today announced that RxAssist (www.RxAssist.org), the recently acquired medication assistance resource center, is now successfully integrated into the RxVantage platform.
“Now, with the RxAssist savings center, providers can save even more time by navigating the complex world of PAPs, co-pay cards, and coupons in a single, centralized online location.”
Established in 1999, RxAssist, one of the first web-based medication assistance resource centers, provides a current and comprehensive database of patient assistance programs (PAPs). One of the most trusted brands in the industry, RxAssist has served more than 20 million patients and healthcare providers. It helps them to easily obtain information about free and low-cost prescription drug programs, and provides tips on managing medication costs as well as information on safety net programs for the underinsured.
“RxVantage streamlines the scheduling process for pharmaceutical and other medical sales representatives, saving medical practices an average of 12 hours per month,” said Daniel Gilman, co-founder and chief information officer for RxVantage. “Now, with the RxAssist savings center, providers can save even more time by navigating the complex world of PAPs, co-pay cards, and coupons in a single, centralized online location.”
With a comprehensive range of efficiency tools, RxVantage is utilized by tens of thousands of medical office managers, staff and providers, as well as pharmaceutical and medical sales representatives. RxVantage is free for medical practices to use.
Through the RxAssist acquisition, RxVantage now includes a patient savings center module which enables users of the platform to access RxAssist’s robust database of free and low cost PAPs. Along with PAP information, search results display all available co-pay cards, coupons (which can be emailed or texted directly to the patient) and comparative geocentric (where the patient lives/shops) pharmacy pricing.
RxVantage’s primary funding comes from leading healthcare and technology investment firms including the Slater Technology Fund and Javelin Venture Partners. RxAssist, acquired by RxVantage, was previously funded from grants, including the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and AstraZeneca.
