Bethesda, Maryland, May 15, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — CareMetx, LLC, a leading technology-enabled hub services company focused on improving patient access to specialty medications, announced the sale of OutcomeRx, a division of CareMetx. OutcomeRx was formed in 2019 to address the patient, manufacturer, and payor challenges in the evolving Cell and Gene Therapy (CGT) market.
OutcomeRx offers its reinsurance solution to payors and other risk bearing entities so covered members receive personalized treatment and care management at credentialed Centers of Excellence. Additionally, payors and manufacturers can utilize OutcomeRx’s warranties to align clinical and financial outcomes. These solutions are particularly valuable with the growth of the Cell and Gene Therapy market which is expected to reach $17.2 billion1 by 2027.
“The cost of these therapies, often upward of 2 to 3 million dollars per patient, necessitates financial and risk predictability for both primary and secondary payors. There is enormous opportunity to make these life-saving therapies accessible to covered members,” says Joe Morse, CEO of the newly founded CGT Solutions. He continues, “With bespoke solutions designed by OutcomeRx, we’re able to provide the reinsurance and warranty of cell and gene therapies to deliver patient access and superior clinical and financial outcomes.”
“CareMetx’s support for the solutions offered by OutcomeRx is steadfast. We believe that this acquisition ensures that the continued commercialization of such solutions is assured,” says Jim Rowe, CEO of CareMetx which retains a minority interest in OutcomeRx. Brooks Wildasin, who oversaw the launch of OutcomeRx’s Therapy Warranty and Patient Access to Costly and Curative Therapies (also known as PACCT), will continue to manage the product portfolio as EVP and Chief Underwriting Officer. In addition, CareMetx Co-founder and Executive Chairman Mark Hansan will serve on the Board of Directors of CGT Solutions.
