MADISON, Wis.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Lumicera Health Services, a specialty pharmacy, wholly owned by Navitus Health Solutions, has entered a multiyear strategic partnership with CassianRx, a brand of Cassian Solutions, Inc. and a leading provider of patient engagement services.
The agreement, which was completed on December 8, 2021, enables both Lumicera and CassianRx to provide industry-leading, customized patient outcomes and experiences for patients with critical and complex conditions. The first initiative of this alliance is the launch of MyPortal, an intelligent engagement platform that delivers personalized patient guidance and clinical services to address the unique needs of the more than 500 chronic and serious conditions supported by Lumicera.
“Insurers and manufacturers are increasingly looking to employ the latest communication technologies to engage with patients so they can actively participate in their own health care decisions, which ultimately improves outcomes,” said Sharon Faust, Vice President, Specialty Pharmacy, Lumicera Health Services. “Partnering with CassianRx is one of the many ways that we continue to identify new and innovative ways to up-level the high-touch care we provide to our clients and their patients.”
By combining the innovative specialty services offered by Lumicera and the leading engagement technology offered by CassianRx, the partnership will provide more data-driven critical insights into patient needs and yield increased efficiencies, resulting in a more tailored customer experience.
Under the agreement, CassianRx will develop and deploy best-of-class services supported by staged investments from Lumicera. In turn, CassianRx will extend the jointly developed services incorporating intellectual property developed by Lumicera.
