EmpiRx Health named as one of FierceHealthcare’s “Fierce 15” Companies of 2019

January 8, 2019

MONTVALE, N.J.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 8, 2019--EmpiRx Health today announced that it has been named by FierceHealthcare as one of the 2019 Fierce 15 companies, designating it as one of the most promising healthcare companies in the industry.

An internationally recognized daily report reaching a network of over 120,000 healthcare industry professionals, FierceHealthcare provides subscribers with an authoritative analysis of the day’s top stories. This year, FierceHealthcare evaluated hundreds of companies from around the world for its first annual Fierce 15 list, which is based on a variety of factors such as strength of its technology, partnerships, venture backers and its innovative approach to solving some of the most complex and longstanding problems in the health industry.

“We’re thrilled to be recognized as a game-changer by one of the industry’s leading publications on healthcare reform,” said William Resnick, founder and CEO of EmpiRx Health. “At EmpiRx Health, we demonstrate the spirit of being fierce every day because we believe employers who want to do right by their employees should have quick access to empirical analysis and human support to optimize clinical outcomes and hold down health costs.”

EmpiRx Health was launched in 2015 in response to the prevalent pharmacy benefit management (PBM) industry model, which relies heavily on the ability to maximize spread opportunities by controlling inventory and driving prescription use to maximize rebate dollars rather than appropriate utilization of medications. The company has been experiencing solid growth by differentiating itself from existing PBMs through achieving the lowest annual cost of care for clients while providing superior clinical care and allowing customers the ability to sustain optimal levels of benefits for their employees/members. “When we tell you we’ll save you money, we will—or we’ll pay that promised savings to you from our own pocket,” Resnick said.

The Fierce 15 celebrates the spirit of being “fierce” – championing innovation and creativity, even in the face of intense competition.

“This year’s Fierce15 winners show companies both large and small are finding new and innovative ways to tackle healthcare’s most pressing challenges,” said Tina Reed, FierceHealthcare’s executive health and hospitals editor.
