Defining Digital Health

Digital health. It's all the rage. What is it? More importantly, what does it mean to companies like ours that have been building longstanding pharmaceutical partners and successfully interacting with patients, pharmacists, and providers for more than 15 years?

Life as an Intern at TrialCard

When I graduated from college in May, I experienced a mix of emotions. I was proud of myself for everything I had accomplished during my four years at Clemson. I worked in the Social Media Listening Center—a research lab and teaching facility where students could track real-time chatter of events such as presidential elections, sporting events, and other news items. This experience piqued my interest in social media analytics. I also had the opportunity to study abroad in Germany and advance my communication skills and knowledge in public relations. And in my last year of college, I completed my [...]

Co-Pay Accumulator Programs

Right now, copay accumulator programs are one of the hottest and most controversial topics being discussed in our industry. This tactic represents a change in prescription drug benefit plan designs offered by pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs) to plan sponsors. Using names such as “out-of-pocket protection” and “coupon adjustment: benefit plan protection,” these programs are designed to shift specialty drug costs to patients and pharmaceutical manufacturer assistance programs, thereby saving plan sponsors money. TrialCard has designed a solution that mitigates the negative impact of this new benefit design. THE PROBLEM In traditional plan designs, copay assistance programs offset costs otherwise [...]

NC Patient Access Company Partners with the ALS Association

MORRISVILLE, NC—Each year, employees at TrialCard—a NC-based patient services company—support a philanthropic organization of their choice. The company’s only requirements in choosing the organization is that there’s a personal connection to an employee, as well as a local event to rally behind.

Also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, ALS targets brain cells, called motor neurons, which send messages from the brain to muscles throughout the body. As motor neurons die, a person progressively loses [...]
