KnippeRx and RxLightning Partner to Streamline Provider Experience and Accelerate Patient Access to Specialty Medications

Mar 28, 2024

NEW ALBANY, Ind. — RxLightning, creator of the industry’s first comprehensive platform for streamlining specialty medication access and affordability, and KnippeRx, a leader in custom pharmacy solutions and Patient Assistance Program services, are excited to announce a strategic partnership aimed at simplifying the specialty medication onboarding process for patients and providers.

Through a co-branded and integrated web portal, RxLightning now enables prescribers and their care teams the ability to enroll patients in Free-Drug and Patient Assistance Programs (PAP) managed by KnippeRx. KnippeRx supports a number of PAP initiatives for prominent pharmaceutical manufacturers by offering application management, patient qualification, product dispensing, and patient support. To start, the two companies launched an embedded, digital enrollment process for over a dozen commonly prescribed medications, with new medications being added in subsequent months.

Previously, enrolling in some manufacturer programs required paper forms, snail-mail, or fax, and could take weeks to be processed. Now, PAP submission times through the RxLightning portal and KnippeRx Cares Technology Ecosystem are reduced to a matter of minutes, significantly improving the time it takes for patients to receive medications. By eliminating the need for cumbersome paperwork and providing real-time status updates on enrollments, stakeholders have complete visibility into the progress of each patient’s journey. This ensures that service teams are alerted to access hurdles in near real-time and can effectively support speed-to-therapy.

“We are thrilled to partner with RxLightning to transform the specialty medication enrollment experience,” said Luke Austin, VP of Patient Support at KnippeRx. “Together, by delivering a fully-digital enrollment workflow to patients and providers, we can accelerate access to quality care while ensuring patients receive support for the medications they need.”

The partnership has seen early successes, with prominent health systems and physician practices completing enrollments through the streamlined workflow and enhanced digital experience. KnippeRx and RxLightning are committed to expanding the value they deliver by growing the number of medications available within the platform, with more manufacturers looking to embrace digital specialty medication enrollment capabilities every day.

Julia Regan, Founder and CEO of RxLightning, added, “This partnership is only the beginning, and is a significant step forward in our mission to simplify and expedite access to critical medications. Together, KnippeRx and RxLightning are committed to creating a seamless and efficient enrollment process that benefits both patients and providers.”
