A partner in market access you can trust

We are 100% focused on helping both pharma and payers get innovative therapies to patients and improving outcomes.

Founded by the industry and payers, for the industry and payers

Founders Nathan Sigworth and Richard Bergström are no strangers to infrastructural roadblocks in pharma. As founder and former CEO of PharmaSecure, Sigworth led the fight against counterfeit drugs in the developing world. Meanwhile, Bergström had spent his career on the frontlines of drug innovation and access across Europe.

Esteemed industry leaders and staunch believers that deal making can be improved, Sigworth and Bergström* assembled a team of experts in pharma, finance, business, and tech — and worked in collaboration with both pharma and payers — to create PharmaCCX’s Contingent Commitment Exchange.

A first of its kind, the Exchange allows pharma and payers to communicate without revealing proprietary information, overcome the administrative bottleneck of mounting complex agreements, and increase market access.

Market access doesn’t need disruption, it needs infrastructure. We’re committed to supporting your important work with the infrastructure to do it as effectively as possible.

Let’s give patients a shot at survival — together.
*Since co-founding PharmaCCX and helping to shape the vision of the company, Bergström has stepped down to focus on the fight against COVID-19 as Sweden’s Vaccine Coordinator.

Deal making for the new science doesn't work for either pharma or payers

Millions of patients across the globe need these new, innovative therapies to survive, like new generation combination oncology, and gene therapies. The sad truth is that many of these therapies are ready and approved to go to market — they’re just stuck in limbo waiting for an agreement between payers and pharma.

Market access teams in pharma and payers are working diligently to get these therapies to market, but managing deals for them takes a lot of time and resources — especially when there’s more to negotiate than just price. What you need — and what we’ve created — is an infrastructure to make complicated deals possible and scalable.

Our technology empowers both pharma and payers to

Negotiate on price, outcomes, performance provisions, combination therapies, multi-indication pricing, and more.

Manage a large volume of deals at scale easily

Results

More patients get the life-saving therapies they both need and deserve.

Expand the dimensions of market access negotiations with PharmaCCX

Launched in 2018, PharmaCCX is the only all-in-one platform specifically designed to help both pharma and payers negotiate, agree, settle, and manage complex deals.
