AstraZeneca Offers Online Enrollment and Additional Improvements to Patient Assistance Program
Date:1/13/2010

WILMINGTON, Del., Jan. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- AstraZeneca (NYSE: AZN) announced today that enrollment and re-enrollment for two of its prescription savings programs is available online for the first time at www.azandme.com.

In addition, online self-service options are available for both programs, which enable health care providers, advocates and patients to order and monitor the shipping of refills and check the status of their enrollment online at www.azandme.com. AstraZeneca is the first pharmaceutical company to provide these self-service options directly to patients.

"We are using more tools to help patients get the medicines and information they need in an efficient and timely way," said Jennifer McGovern, AstraZeneca Director of Patient Assistance Programs. "We hope to be able to better serve patients and the people who support them by continually making program enhancements."

For over 30 years, AstraZeneca has offered patient assistance, because the company knows that medicines can only make a difference if patients can access them. Web-based improvements are another way that AstraZeneca is strengthening its commitment to patient health.
