With a 20% increase in its provider network and the launch of two Life Science connectivity integrations, 2019 was a momentous year for Annexus Health.
“In 2019 we arrived at an incredible upside inflection point as a result of our team achieving critical mass in the areas of provider uptake and life science contractual commitments,” said Annexus Health CEO and Co-Founder Joe Baffone.
The company’s recent achievements also include product enhancements, industry recognition, and internal growth.
Since launching in 2018, more than 30,000 patient applications and over $200 million in patient financial assistance have been processed through the AssistPoint platform.

• Re-imagined application wizard

Looking forward in 2020
“At the core of everything we do is the patient,” said Brad Frazier, President, COO, and Co-Founder of Annexus Health. “In 2020, we plan to even further accelerate our goal of transforming the highly manual and fragmented administrative barriers that compound the significant challenges already facing each patient (and their provider team) into a more seamless administrative journey. With every feature we build, with every team member we on board, with every interaction we have with our valued partners, maintaining clear sight on this goal is at the center of who we are as a company.”
Later this year, Annexus Health will host the first of many Innovation Summits, providing an opportunity for providers and life science companies to come together and share ideas. Annexus Health will also participate in the 2020 eyeforpharma start-up challenge. Joe Baffone will represent the company at this exciting event in which startups battle it out with a three-minute elevator pitch to an audience of expectant pharmaceutical executives, who then vote on a winner. The eyeforpharma Start-Up Challenge will be held April 15-16, 2020 in Philadelphia.
“Our family has expanded rapidly with new customers, new employees, and contracted valued partners with more to come,” said Baffone. “The prospects and forecast for our disruptive approach to improve the way the patient care journey is managed in 2020 are incredible. Critical to Annexus taking full advantage of the opportunity and momentum going into 2020 will be how we continue to build our team, reinforce our culture of empowerment to make a difference in the lives of patients, and cultivate partnerships with other like-minded organizations. We are passionate about our work and driving change.”

Earlier this evening at the Bellevue hotel in Philadelphia, PA, over 500 attendees came together representing the pharma industry to recognize innovation in the space. There were 16 value-based categories that received over 600 global entries. A panel of 35 judges representing senior level executives from pharma, patient advocacy, and patients reviewed and selected the finalists and then ultimately the winner in each category.
Annexus Health originally submitted entries into two of the categories and was named a finalist in each: Most Valuable Service or Digital Therapy and Entrepreneur Health Care Solution. During the awards event, Annexus was recognized as the winner for the category: Most Valuable Service or Digital Therapy for the submission “AssistPoint: Reducing the administration burden across the patient journey”.
The criteria for this award category was an initiative which goes beyond the pill, providing a holistic service or solution that provides significant benefits to patients. The initiative may be complimentary to a medicine or be entirely independent of a medicine, yet still be able to demonstrate clinical or other value. It should either have launched, or will be launched imminently, but should have some field exposure.
