Zephyr Health and Decision Resources Group (DRG) Maximize Value of Formulary Data for Life Sciences Commercial Teams

Provider Market Access: A First-of-its-Kind, New Product Offering is Now Available

BURLINGTON, MA and SAN FRANCISCO, CA, June 12, 2017 — Zephyr Health, the leading Insights-as-a-Service solution provider for Life Sciences companies, and Decision Resources Group (DRG), one of the healthcare industry’s most trusted providers of market intelligence and global data products and services, today announced the release of Provider Market Access. The first advanced analytics product of its kind, Provider Market Access operationalizes formulary status for commercial (sales and marketing) teams in Life Sciences companies for improved account planning, physician engagement and sales effectiveness.

“These groundbreaking capabilities help maximize sales opportunities and accelerate brand performance by contextualizing market access status into actionable insights,” said Lance Scott, President and CEO, Zephyr Health. “Getting real-time visibility into the formulary and reimbursement status of a company’s product at the individual physician level will transform how market access data is managed within commercial teams and broaden today’s current, centralized view.”

This new suite of advanced analytics, available within the Zephyr Illuminate™ platform, combines DRG’s gold-standard Fingertip Formulary market access data with hundreds of public, internal and external data sources linked in Zephyr Illuminate to deliver comprehensive provider-centric market access insights. The enhanced solution includes “Market Access Potential,” which identifies sales opportunities based upon formulary coverage compared to competing therapies, and “Market Access Recommendations”, which generate real-time notifications to field representatives with actionable next steps based upon changes to formulary status.

Baird Stiles, DRG’s Senior Vice President of Market Access Product Solutions remarked “As the healthcare landscape continues to shift, connecting flexible market access strategies to field sales teams is one of the primary keys to success. Organizations that can quickly and effectively respond to advantageous formulary and policy shifts are better positioned to maximize their brand access. DRG and Zephyr Health are excited to provide Life Sciences organizations with an actionable tool that enables sales and account teams to engage in immediate real-time, data driven conversations as well as develop targeted, impactful, long-term market access strategies.”

Provider Market Access is the first co-innovation area for Zephyr Health and DRG. The companies will continue to partner on additional opportunities to bring innovative data and insight solutions to Life Sciences companies while operating independently with their own robust product offerings.
