OptimizeRx Launches ROI Guarantee to Pharmaceutical Manufacturers


Company has Proven ROI on Affordability and Adherence which Enhances the

Pharma-Provider Relationship at the Point-of-Care


ROCHESTER, Mich., (September 12, 2018) — OptimizeRx Corp. (NASDAQ: OPRX), one of the nation’s leading providers of digital health messaging for the pharmaceutical industry, has launched a 2:1 return-on-investment (ROI) guarantee to pharmaceutical manufacturers who invest in the company’s financial messaging solutions.


OptimizeRx’s patient savings messages are real-time medication savings information delivered to providers within the EHR workflow, increasing the likelihood that a physician and patients will understand the true out-of-pocket cost of the prescribed drug.


“In order to succeed in today’s changing health care landscape, pharmaceutical companies must evolve their strategies to directly engage with providers at the point-of-care,” said William Febbo, CEO of OptimizeRx. “We work with our pharmaceutical partners strategically to design affordability and adherence programs, enabling them to run integrated messaging campaigns that deliver tangible value, including increased prescription rates and fill rates.”


In the health economy, there is increasing interdependence in the payer, providers and pharmaceutical value chain. Health care providers are looking to drug companies to partner with them to deliver care that promotes sustainable population health improvement and lower costs. Industry research points to high drug costs as a primary contributing factor to medication non-adherence. With OptimizeRx, providers can empower patients with ways to afford their medications as well as access to methods for addressing health illiteracy and transparency into whether patients are following through with drug therapies.


“The growth of our patient savings solution — a 50 percent increase year-to-date — makes us confident in our ability to deliver the 2:1 ROI guarantee to current and future partners,” continued Febbo. “As long as the programs we co-design meet a minimum set of requirements, we will stand behind this guarantee.”
