Conduent, Experian Health partner on Rx and patient assistance

Collaboration could streamline access to free prescription drug support


Conduent Incorporated, a patient support company, has reached a commercial agreement with Experian Health, a data aggregator that provides revenue cycle management products involving patient engagement, access and collections.

The deal allows Conduent’s IntelliHealth program to connect with Experian’s consumer data and electronic income verification tool. The combination, companies say, can help speed up prescription drug assistance approvals and shorten prescription fulfillment and time to therapy.

With Conduent’s experience with patient assistance programs (PAPs) and Experian’s Patient Financial Clearance tool, the alliance is projected to simplify access to free Rx drug assistance that could benefit up 28 million Americans with no or limited healthcare coverage, and more than 12.6 million that are reported to be jobless by the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
