MedVantx Announces End of Runway Pharmacy to Offer Enhanced Specialty Pharmacy and Direct-to-Patient Medication Access Services

SAN DIEGO, Aug. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- MedVantx, Inc., a leading provider of medication access, adherence and direct-to-patient consumer programs, today announced it will create a specialty pharmacy on-site at the UPS Global Healthcare campus and adjacent to UPS Worldport, UPS's worldwide air hub located at Louisville International Airport in Louisville, KY and the largest fully automated package handling facility in the world.  This new end-of-runway specialty pharmacy expands on the MedVantx Omni-Channel/HUB services pharmacy strategy to now provide manufacturers, payors and health systems with enhanced cold chain logistics capabilities, cGMP consigned inventory models and direct-to-patient delivery programs that will significantly increase speed to therapy, improve medication adherence and reduce overall supply chain expenses.

The specialty pharmaceutical marketplace is expected to more than quadruple by 2020, reaching approximately $402 billion a year.  And, the pharmaceutical industry is seeking new HUB services and direct-to-patient platforms that can manage traditional prescription medications as well as the unique supply chain requirements of specialty products in a single integrated platform.  MedVantx pioneered the pharmaceutical industry's first anticipatory delivery channel of prescription medication therapy through the company's proprietary "ATM-like" medication management platform, MedStart™ Connect that allows medications to be provided directly to consumers at the point of care and has been shown to significantly improve primary and secondary adherence. Now, with the new cGMP-compliant end-of-runway pharmacy at UPS's Worldport air hub, which will feature controlled substance storage and support the full range of temperature-sensitive products, MedVantx can provide a broader array of direct-to-consumer distribution services, with industry-leading response times, order cut-offs as late as 1 AM ET and improved flexibility.   

"The prescription assistance, specialty pharmacy and direct-to-patient marketplace is converging at a time of incredible innovation in healthcare delivery, consumerism, and new e-commerce channels," said Robert Feeney, Founder and CEO of MedVantx, Inc.  "Pharmaceutical manufacturers are seeking new integrated HUB service platforms that can manage the unique requirements of specialty medications while at the same time better serving an increasingly engaged, demanding and impatient healthcare consumer.  MedVantx pioneered the healthcare industry's first anticipatory delivery modality of prescription medications at the point of care, and, thus, we are uniquely qualified to expand our medication access platform to the next level—same day home delivery," added Mr. Feeney.  "By creating this new pharmacy solution and taking advantage of healthcare-specific services provided by UPS, we can develop new tools for manufacturers, providers and payors to help them achieve their goals."   

"At UPS, we continually work to develop new, innovative solutions to best serve the unique needs of our healthcare customers," said John Menna, UPS vice president, global healthcare strategy. "Working closely with MedVantx, we developed an offering that answers their need by providing a second cGMP-compliant pharmacy location that supports a full range of temperature-sensitive products along with controlled substance storage, and best-in-class distribution services to their customers throughout the U.S."
