CareDx will Directly Support Organ Transplant Patients with Specialty Prescription Services

Brisbane, California, UNITED STATES


SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., Jan. 05, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CareDx, Inc. (Nasdaq: CDNA) – The Transplant Company™ focused on the discovery, development, and commercialization of clinically differentiated, high-value healthcare solutions for transplant patients and caregivers, today announced that it has acquired The Transplant Pharmacy, a transplant focused pharmacy located in Flowood, Mississippi, to expand its medication management and adherence services.

The Transplant Pharmacy provides individualized transplant pharmacy services for patients at multiple transplant centers located throughout the United States. Dedicated to patient service and medication adherence, the pharmacy also offers an online patient portal and mobile app for medication ordering and reminders.

“Medication adherence has always been an important area of focus for CareDx, particularly given the complexity and high rate of nonadherence with immunosuppressive medications in organ transplant recipients and its impact on long-term patient outcomes,” said Reg Seeto, CEO and President of CareDx. “With this acquisition and our entry into the pharmacy space, we will be able to strengthen our connection to patients, offer more touchpoints along their pre- and post-transplant journey and, ultimately, help improve outcomes.”

The acquisition of The Transplant Pharmacy expands CareDx’s medication adherence-focused healthcare solutions for patients, which currently includes products such as: AlloCare™, a comprehensive mobile health app for managing the day-to-day health of patients pre- and post transplant; Transplant Hero™, a pill reminder app; and MedActionPlan, a robust medication management and adherence platform used by more than 100 healthcare systems.

“The Transplant Pharmacy was built on a foundation that strives to make sure that every transplant patient receives the absolute best pharmaceutical care possible because medication adherence can mean the life-changing difference between a successful organ transplant and rejection. To that end, we deliver personalized care along with an extensive understanding of transplant medications – all to help ensure that patients are taking the right medications at the right time,” said Jay Gulley, Pharm.D., President and Founder of The Transplant Pharmacy. “We are excited to partner with CareDx, a company who shares our passion for serving transplant patients. This partnership will allow us to provide an even greater level of care, and expand our reach to a greater number of organ transplant recipients.”
