Model N (MODN) Unveils Advanced Solutions for Pharma Industry

Read MoreHide Full Article

Model N Inc. recently unveiled cutting-edge integrated data solutions called Syndicated Customer Master and Formulary Compliance to address a wide array of complexities frequently encountered by manufacturers in the life sciences industry.

Formularies are curated lists of medications that are covered in health insurance plans and managed by pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs). This is a vital mechanism ensuring a patient has access to necessary therapies. However, keeping up with the large volume of formulary data and ensuring compliance is a daunting task for pharmaceutical manufacturers. Non-compliance might lead to extensive financial losses for manufacturers through rebate overpayment. These incidents can create friction and undermine business relationships between PBMs, payers and pharmaceutical manufacturers.

MODN’s Formulary Compliance is a comprehensive solution that efficiently resolves these issues. Integrated with Model N’s Validata and Payer Management solutions, it streamlined the rebate process, preventing any overpayment and thereby optimizing revenues for manufacturers. Accurate formulary compliance mitigates disputes between manufacturers and payers. A thoroughly secured, comprehensive formulary database gives enterprises access to essential insights into compliance issues. The solution enables producers to align drug availability with the formularies, ensuring that patients have access to the prescribed therapies without any hindrance.

Pricing errors due to the use of obsolete, misleading customer data and invalid chargebacks are also major issues for organizations. This can affect customer relationships and hinder revenue growth. The newly released MODN’s Syndicated Customer Master boosts master data quality, ensuring chargeback precision with the latest purchasing data. It brings accurate pricing capabilities to improve customer satisfaction.

The advanced features of leading-edge data solutions empower pharmaceutical companies to make well-informed business decisions, optimize revenue, and ensure compliance. Model N has significant growth opportunities in the revenue management market as it continues to replace legacy processes that are labor-intensive, error-prone and costly.

In April 2024, Model N announced that it had signed an agreement with the global investment firm, Vista Equity Partners. Per the deal, Vista is set to acquire MODN for approximately $1.25 billion. For Model N, the buyout will open up access to greater resources, placing it for sustained growth and market leadership for the coming years.

The stock has declined 10.5% in the past year against the industry’s growth of 34.3%.
