Disrupting Pharmacy Benefit Management: RxParadigm Launches to Restore Drug Industry Competitiveness and Reduce the…

first_img Previous articleKingstone Insurance Partners with Flyreel to Offer Breakthrough Contactless Home InspectionsNext articleExperity Tapped by CityMD to Optimize Operations and Truncate Patient Wait Times Digital AIM Web Support TAGS  Twitter Facebook Twitter Pinterest Pinterest CLAYMONT, Del.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 9, 2021– A seasoned veteran of the prescription drug industry has broken ranks with the status quo and launched a new business to inject more transparency and competitiveness into how drugs are marketed and distributed in the United States. Mesfin Tegenu negotiated billions of dollars of prescription drug contracts with leading pharmaceutical companies over a 25-year career. Now, he intends to use his new company, RxParadigm, to rework the opaque system of how drug rebates are offered and how drug prices are negotiated to reduce costs and increase the availability of life-saving therapeutics to the American public. RxParadigm will focus on increasing competition in a powerful, yet little understood channel, Pharmacy Benefit Management (PBM). Originally conceived in the 1960s, PBMs were created to aggregate the buying power of several insurance companies to drive down drug prices. But as the channel became more concentrated and drug pricing became shrouded in a secretive system of manufacturer rebates, the original intent was lost. The result is seen in ever-escalating prescription drug costs for providers and patients. Net spending on outpatient prescription drugs is expected to rise by more than 5% annually between 2020 and 2028. One way to keep drug costs in check is to encourage healthy competition – something currently lacking in the PBM market due to mega-consolidation that’s depriving the industry of innovation, flexibility, quality, and transparency. The Prescription for Lower Drug Costs RxParadigm seeks to disrupt the industry by leveraging the combined power of regional health plans and the many like-minded PBMs who are slowly losing their customer base to the consolidated market. RxParadigm will then take the unprecedented step of returning all negotiated rebates to regional plans and like-minded PBMs so that these struggling firms can build more innovative and competitive business models, leveling the playing field, and reducing drug costs through market competition. To audit the savings, RxParadigm uses blockchain technology to deliver unparalleled transparency across the entire prescription drug ecosystem. “For all intents and purposes, transparency and competitiveness do not exist in the prescription drug market because of an outdated drug rebate negotiation culture that allows a select few companies to see higher margins and, in turn, dominate the entire prescription drug ecosystem,” said Mesfin Tegenu, the founder and CEO of RxParadigm. “Rebates were supposed to provide discounts based on quality and control, but now they simply guarantee that a few players receive the greatest economic benefit, effectively locking out competition from regional plans and midsize firms.” Building a More Competitive and Agile Marketplace To make these cost savings a reality, RxParadigm offers members a range of tools, allowing, for the first time, regional plans and like-minded PBMs to craft a range of solutions that best meet the needs of providers and patients. “Until now, some PBMs and regional plans did not have the resources to invest in the kind of forward-thinking, patient-centric solutions that improve outcomes and reduce the total cost of health care,” Tegenu said. “Using advanced medication adherence technologies, flexible claims processing, and AI, we offer an array of patient compliance and monitoring tools so payers can see additional cost savings by choosing RxParadigm participating PBMs.” Perhaps the most forward-thinking of these tools allows patients to receive drug discounts directly at point of purchase, allowing providers to meet a Medicare mandate ahead of a 2022 deadline. “We foresee much of these savings to be passed directly to patients in the way of lower out-of-pocket costs for their prescription drug needs,” said Tegenu. A Market Ready, Willing and Able to Compete Response to the RxParadigm model has been nothing short of dramatic. “The entire industry realizes that the basic inequalities inherent in the current system, where a few large players receive the greatest rebates, have stifled competition and fueled drug cost increases,” said Moses Asom, CEO of Trans-Sahara Investment Corporation, which became a charter member of RxParadigm in January of this year. “RxParadigm opens up the current market by providing full transparency into unit cost discounts throughout the channel. With new strategies to increase the buying power of retail pharmacies and make them more competitive, the industry can now provide more services to the client. These initiatives are long past due and are sure to foster a more responsive and less costly health care delivery system.” About RxParadigm RxParadigm delivers transparency and competitiveness to the prescription drug marketplace. Founded by industry veteran Mesfin Tegenu, RxParadigm is reworking the opaque system of how prescription drug rebates are offered and how drug prices are negotiated to reduce the cost and increase availability of life-saving therapeutics to the American public. By neutralizing the PBM market imbalance, RxParadigm provides regional plans and pharmacy benefit management companies with the same economic advantages their larger competitors enjoy, along with the tools they need, including ease of payment for gene therapy, to differentiate themselves and provide more value to the marketplace. www.rxparadigm.com View source version on businesswire.com:https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20210209005355/en/ CONTACT: Media: Denise DiMeglio [email protected] 610-228-2102 KEYWORD: DELAWARE UNITED STATES NORTH AMERICA INDUSTRY KEYWORD: GENERAL HEALTH OTHER HEALTH HOSPITALS HEALTH PHARMACEUTICAL SOURCE: RxParadigm Copyright Business Wire 2021.

Clear Lake approves new ambulance service agreement with Mason City, will result in faster service to some parts of county

first_imgCLEAR LAKE — The Clear Lake City Council has approved a revised ambulance service agreement that should result in better service for residents in the western part of the county. A 28E agreement between Clear Lake and Mason City regarding ambulance service coverage to various parts of the unincorporated area of Cerro Gordo County expired in June of 2017. The new 28E agreement shifts about 95 square miles of territory from Mason City to Clear Lake. Clear Lake Fire Chief Doug Meyers says one of the first discussions he had when Erik Bullinger became Mason City’s fire chief last year was on restructuring the service area for both departments to provide faster service.  “The service area in question incorporates ours, of Clear Lake’s and Ventura’s rural fire district, everything west of Killdeer Avenue within those two districts. Looking back at the closest ambulance to where people may need it, Mason City can get to that area east of Killdeer faster than we can, so it was a it was a good trade-off.”Meyers says the increased service area likely won’t mean a significantly higher call volume to the Clear Lake department.   “What we would anticipate is an additional 10 calls per year in this increased service area. Most of the area is incredibly rural, there’s very few households. The exception would be the Ventura Heights area just south of the grade in Ventura. Currently our fire department, our volunteers respond for technical rescue incidents on the interstate. The only difference would be now that we would have our ambulance accompany with that heavy rescue truck on an extrication on the interstate.” The Clear Lake council approved the agreement at their meeting on Monday night. Mason City’s city council approved it last week, and the Cerro Gordo County Board of Supervisors gave their approval to the agreement at their meeting this morning.last_img read more

Historical Association Looks Forward To 2018

first_imgBy Muriel J. SmithRED BANK – It was a combination of the “Greatest Show on Earth” and the 119th annual meeting of the Monmouth County Historical Association (MCHA) as the association held its election of officers and learned more about some of the former amusement parks of Monmouth County last week at the Two River Theater.Taking her theme from local author and historian Rick Geffken’s presentation at the meeting, Linda Bricker, MCHA president, introduced herself as ringmaster for the evening and termed it a meeting of the “greatest, largest, private-est, nonprofit-est organization completely devoted to history in the entire state of New Jersey.” The theme even flowed through the cocktail hour preceding the meeting, which featured amusement park treats like hot dogs, popcorn and cotton candy, setting the tone for both an entertaining and professional business get-together of local historians and friends.Bricker welcomed the crowd on behalf of the trustees of the organization and outlined both the achievements of the past year while hinting at the superlatives in store for the future of the MCHA.Bricker grew serious in tracing the association’s history from 1898, when a small group of residents incorporated to collect and preserve the history of Monmouth County, to the present, terming 2017, “an excellent year for the association.”She announced that interim director Charles H. Jones III will remain in the position through 2018, noting Jones’ family’s deep connection to both Monmouth County and the organization itself, in addition to his other qualifications for the position. In his brief tenure to date, Jones is credited with overseeing a new exhibition, overhauling the association website and developing a comprehensive program for future strategic planning.Bricker also highlighted the successful efforts during 2017 that have maximized the use of the Taylor-Butler House in Middletown, thanks to both donations and diligent volunteers; the facility is now available for rent for both holiday events and private parties. The front porch of the historic building, set in the heart of Middletown’s historic district, even served as the backdrop for a commercial shoot for a local car dealership and the house itself was the setting for the first Mistletoe, a holiday cocktail party that will become an annual fundraising event.The association will retain an outside consulting firm in 2018 to begin its search for a new director, Bricker said, and to determine the best direction for the association in the 21st century. “We will seek to partner our hopes and dreams for the organization with the potential for reasonable, sustainable and sound financial resources,” she said, adding, “We expect this strategic planning to be transformational and are very excited to begin.”Marketing chair Lisa Klem Wilson reported on a grant received from a Boonton advertising group which financed the overhaul of the association’s website so that monmouthhistory.org “reflects the work we have been doing.” eMuseum, a new mobile-friendly website, allows patrons to connect to MCHA collections, and view photos and graphics. eMuseum currently includes 389 items from portraits and paintings to drawings and furniture, according to interim director Jones. The furniture module, funded in part by grants from the New Jersey Historical Commission and the William T. Morris Foundation, currently offers 159 examples of association furniture holdings with another dozen and a half anticipated to be added this year. Since the inauguration of eMuseum in June, Jones said there have been 527 users from 38 states and nine foreign countries.During his report of the past year, Jones also noted that Tracking Sandy, the exhibit which opened on Super Storm Sandy’s fifth anniversary, has been well received. Completed with help from Melissa Ziobro, a professor at Monmouth University, and local designer Stan Cain, the contemporary exhibition continues to draw crowds with the possibility of it becoming a traveling exhibition in the future.Education chair Mary Ann LaSardo noted the association presented 84 trunk shows for schools and private groups in 2017 and hosted 400 guests at the biggest Fourth of July event yet.At the close of the business portion of the meeting, Bricker introduced Rick Geffken, renowned for his programs on Monmouth County history and a featured speaker for numerous organizations, and a retired Army officer and Vietnam veteran and contributor to the Two River Times.George Severini and Rick Geffken , co-authors of “Lost Amusement Parks of the North Jersey Shore,” were on hand at the MCHA annual meeting to discuss their book.The program was based on his latest book, “Lost Amusement Parks of the North Jersey Shore,” which he wrote with George Severini, who was also present for the meeting. Geffken gave insight into the popularity of three former amusement parks in Highlands, Atlantic Highlands and Sea Bright.He displayed videos and photography of the Atlantic Highlands Bayview Park on the waterfront in Atlantic Highlands in what is now a residential section, and the Red Clay Hill area where patrons could see the traveling 101 Ranch Wild West show at the beginning of the 20th century. The author also featured a brief history on the Bay Avenue merry-go-round on Bay Avenue, Highlands, and showed the importance of the steamship Mandalay to the industry. A passenger steamer that had a regular route between New York and Atlantic Highlands, the Mandalay brought hundreds of thousands of visitors to the amusement parks throughout the summer seasons.Both Geffken and Severini signed copies of their book and donated a portion of the proceeds of the sales to the association.last_img read more

Head coach Maida gets stamp of approval from Leafs brass

first_imgHead coach Frank Maida looked like a magician in November when the Leafs raced to the top of the Murdoch Division.However, after the Leafs lost at home to the Castlegar Rebels prior to the Christmas break the Leafs looked anything like a well-oiled machine as the Green and White dropped down the Murdoch division faster than a pair of cement skates in Kootenay Lake.Nelson finished third behind winner Castlegar Rebels and Beaver Valley Nitehawks despite having the opportunity to clinch the division weeks before the regular season concluded.Still the Leaf executive thought there were more positives than negatives during the recent Kootenay International Junior Hockey League season and voted during a Tuesday night meeting in favour of extending the coaching contract head coach Frank Maida.  “We are excited to extend the coaching contract for another season,” said Leaf president Russell Stocks in a prepared statement. “We look forward to continuing our efforts with Coach Maida to build championship quality and high character teams on and off the ice for the fans of Nelson.”Maida, at the helm the past two seasons when Nelson was knocked out of the first round of the Murdoch Division semi finals by Castlegar Rebels in 2012 and Beaver Valley Nitehawks in 2013, will definitely have an edge when he goes player shopping during the spring recruiting season as Nelson will host the 2014 Cyclone Taylor Cup.The host club gains an automatic bye into the tournament that includes winners of the KIJHL, Vancouver Island Junior Hockey League and Pacific Junior Hockey League.The tournament, Stocks said the franchise is already started preparations to host, is held in April.The preliminary round begins the Thursday night with the top two teams in the round robin draw meeting in the Cyclone Taylor Championship Sunday afternoon.Current KIJHL champ, Castlegar Rebels, begins the 2013 Cyclone Taylor Cup Thursday against host Glacier Kings in Comox.PJHL Champ Richmond Sockeyes meet Island winner Victoria Cougars in the opening match Thursday.last_img read more

Saints pull front-running TRU back by stopping Spartans 6-0

first_img“TWU is a hard-working team that can be very difficult to break down defensively, and even when you do they’ve got one of the top goalies in the league to stop the puck.””Tonight we made some skilled plays, but we were also tough to defend in how we moved our feet and cycled the puck,” Dubois added.”It’s really how we need to play night in, night out to be successful on a consistent basis.”Cody Fidgett opened the scoring midway through the first period when he converted a feed from Saints captain Logan Proulx and beat Spartans netminder Harry Fredeman high to the glove.And the hosts doubled their lead 22 seconds later when Garrett Kucher created space down the right wing and fed a nifty cross ice pass to Darnell Dyck for a tap-in at the far post. Fidgett and Dyck continued to do the damage offensively in the second period, as Fidgett scored on a tic-tac-toe passing play from Proulx and Jackson Garrett before Dyck fired a shot on a shorthanded rush to extend the lead to four. Mason Spear beat Fredeman from in tight on a Saints’ power play in the third period and Dyck completed his hat trick with just 22 seconds remaining in regulation to cap the scoring. Selkirk netminder Chris Hurry picked up his second shutout of the season, turning aside 23 shots. Fredeman, who entered the game with a 1.15 GAA and .966 SV%, allowed six goals on 53 shots but also made a number of outstanding saves that kept his team close over the first 40 minutes of action. The victory was the fifth straight on home ice for the Saints to open the BCIHL regular season and the ninth overall dating back to preseason play in September.Overall, the team has won 26 of 27 games on home ice since the start of the 2012/13 campaign. “Getting wins at home is something that we pride ourselves on,” says Dubois. “We have great fans and the guys very much appreciate and feed off of the energy in the building on game nights. There’s certainly an extra motivation to perform when you’re receiving such tremendous support.” The two teams return to action, this time for a doubleheader in the Fraser Valley.The series opens Friday at 7 p.m. before the teams wrap up the set Saturday at 2 p.m. at the Langley Events Centre.Both games can be viewed online at www.FastHockey.com.

Circumcision campaign to boost HIV prevention

first_img2 December 2013South Africa aims to medically circumcise one-million men over the next 12 months, Deputy President Kgalema Motlanthe said at the launch of the government’s medical male circumcision campaign on World Aids Day in Piet Retief, Mpumalanga province on Sunday.“Our target is to circumcise one-million men over the next 12 months and cumulatively four-million men by 2016,” Motlanthe said, adding that the launch of the campaign, coupled with the re-launch of the HIV counselling and testing campaign, would strengthen the country’s massive HIV/Aids prevention effort.Motlanthe said medical male circumcision had proven to be an effective component of the government’s HIV prevention package. Once 80 percent of South African men had been medically circumcised, half-a-million new HIV infections and 100 000 deaths over the course of the next decade would be prevented.He added, however, that medical interventions were only part of the country’s efforts to fight HIV/Aids.“We also need to ramp up our efforts to address the social determinants that fuel the HIV and Aids epidemic. These include disempowered women and children, who are often the targets of violence, poverty, the migrant labour system, intergenerational sex, transactional sex and many other structural issues.”The re-launched HIV counselling and testing campaign aims to ensure that every South African gets tested at least once annually in order to know their status and take the appropriate steps to maintain their health.Motlanthe said the starting point for preventing HIV/Aids was to know one’s status. “You may have tested in 2010 or 2011, [but] test again this year, and every year,” he said.More than 20-million South Africans have tested for HIV since President Jacob Zuma first launched the campaign in 2010.“In South Africa, the epidemic has matured and the acceleration of our response since 2009 has moved us beyond the ‘tipping point’, where the number of patients being enrolled onto treatment each year now exceeds the number of those who are newly infected,” Motlanthe said.“However, the number of new infections still remains unacceptably high, hence the importance of maintaining our focus on prevention … Our response will not succeed unless we turn off the tap of new infections.”Source: SAnews.gov.zalast_img read more
