In-Workflow Services

A flexible, full-service solution that enables prescribers to enroll patients directly into patient support programs without having to leave their existing workflow

The in-workflow solution starts when a prescriber sends a prescription to the UBC Pharmacy. From there, UBC Pathways® technology, a suite of solutions to help patients access and adhere to therapy, enables case managers to provide a robust range of services.

Integrating this technology simplifies therapy initiation and allows for a more efficient path to services such as eligibility and coverage determination, prior authorization, appeal, affordability, patient engagement, adherence, as well as ongoing care coordination with other fulfillment pharmacies and distributors.

Cell & Gene

A fully integrated, support model for cell and gene therapy patients to achieve optimal outcomes

UBC Pathways® On-Ramp

Highly integrated cell and gene therapy platform to coordinate all activities associated with a personalized treatment plan. From patients and providers to manufacturers and labs, the integrated platform provides actionable insights that enable a seamless care delivery experience across the entire team.

  • Access - explore coverage, benefits and patient eligibility
  • Diagnostics - schedule and track patients' lab samples and results
  • Engagement - engage with patients to educate them on plan expectations
  • Outcomes - track and monitor how patients are responding to therapies

Simplifying the complex | How our cell & gene therapy support program provided life-changing access to treatment

Our client's product is a life-changing therapy for patients. However, it comes with a very high cost. Given the complexities of product acquisition, shipping and product administration, close consideration must be made regarding high-touch coordination and appropriate wrap-around services required by the patient, such as:

  • Pre-treatment lab tests to confirm diagnosis
  • Travel, food and lodging support to reach the treatment location
  • Financial assistance for qualified patients

"UBC is very engaged in their work and truly cares about the patients we serve. They are very friendly, helpful and responsive. Our case manager went above and beyond to exceed timelines that expedited the process for patients. We were navigating a very tough case with a family that needed support to get the patient a life-changing infusion. Our team successfully connected the family to the resources they needed at late notice to get the patient infused the very next day!"

Patient Engagement

UBC Pathways® Engage, our trusted intelligent mobile messaging, creates meaningful relationships with your patients to help them overcome barriers to therapy

Linda, our UBC virtual assistant, works in conjunction with case managers to keep your patients and providers informed and engaged throughout the therapeutic journey. She provides real-time, intelligent messaging to enhance activities that traditionally occur telephonically in a patient support hub.

Through automated conversation journeys tailored to your program needs, UBC Pathways® Engage enables you to deliver more effective patient support and critical care updates via a patient's mobile device.

For a recent program, Linda has had 96% positive patient sentiment with 84% percent of patients in the program saving the client contact numbers into their mobile devices. By saving phone numbers in their patient's phones, we were able to show 20% less call attempts to patients and each patient had on average 6.8 conversations in the mobile messaging software.

Evidence & Outcomes

Leverage your patient support program to create evidence for payer and regulatory requirements

As the payer market shifts to value-based contracts for specialized rare disease treatments, count on UBC, your trusted partner to navigate the delicate balance of patient, payer and provider access. By combining insights from your patient support program with third-party claims data and/or patient-reported outcomes (PRO), generate a comprehensive data set to support payer and regulatory requirements.

Our Proven Process

consent from patients in the hub to join appropriate registries

2

a PRO data collection solution to the patient from the hub

3

De-identify
and link patient records to Payer data via third-party private data platforms

4

Tokenize
data through UBC's existing preferred partnerships or other third-party data aggregators and platforms

5

Ensure
patients are following protocol of the PRO data collection, conducting ongoing adherence and education through case coordinators

6

Create
appropriate outcome records to support payer (i.e. value based payment models) or regulatory (post market launch commitments)
