Catamaran Launches BriovaRx Specialty Pharmacy Program

Briova

Catamaran (formerly SXC Health Solutions) recently announced its new specialty pharmacy offering, BriovaRx. Catamaran, under its former name, has more than 15 years of experience within specialty pharmacy. BriovaRx replaces its former specialty pharmacy offering, Medfusion/Ascend and will be the fifth-largest specialty pharmacy in the nation.

MedfusionAscend was birthed out of a merger between MedfusionRx and Ascend Specialty PharmacyRx.

“Briova builds upon what the Medfusion and Ascend brands were able to accomplish, and represents Catamaran’s fresh approach to the management of specialty,” said Albert Thigpen, Senior Vice President, Pharmacy Operations, Catamaran. “Whereas the industry is focused on the drug and distribution, Briova is focused on engaging patients in a highly personal way so that their care is managed holistically and they remain adherent to their medications. It’s essentially about infusing vigor and energy back into specialty pharmacy -  helping reclaim healthy, vibrant lives one patient at a time.”

BriovaRx offers free home delivery and education on all medications it offer, including injection teaching. Areas of care include: Ankylosing Spondylitis, Cancer, Crohn’s Disease, Cystic Fibrosis, Enzyme Deficiencies and Lysosomal Storage Disorders, Growth Hormone Deficiency, Hemophilia & Bleeding Disorders, Hepatitis C, Infertility, Juvenile Arthritis, Multiple Sclerosis, Organ Transplant, Osteoarthritis, Psoriasis, Rheumatoid Arthritis and Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV).

BriovaRx is URAC and ACHC accredited.
