Somerset, NJ — inVentiv Health, a global provider of results-driven clinical, consulting and commercial services to the biopharmaceutical
and healthcare industries, announced the rebranding of The Franklin Group, a leading provider of patient access and reimbursement services to the healthcare industry, as inVentiv Patient Access Solutions. This rebranding better reflects the organization’s expanded services and expertise in reimbursement, enabling greater patient access to pharmaceutical drugs.

"One of the biggest trends in the pharmaceutical sector is the increase in prior authorizations that are being required before patients can get the drugs they need — an increase estimated to be approximately 400% over the next 3 years," said John Doster, executive vice president and managing director of inVentiv Patient Access Solutions. "As more and more hurdles are put between patients and products, we’re finding a growing demand for our expertise in patient access by drug makers and physicians."

Doster said the company has long been recognized for delivering exceptional support to pharmaceutical companies’ patient assistance and reimbursement programs. This rebranding represents an expanded offering supporting multi-faceted patient access strategies.
