CPhI India Concludes the 2021 Hybrid Edition of CPhI - P-MEC Expo along with Informa Pharma Intelligence
Informa Pharma Intelligence, one of the leading business intelligence providers and knowledge partner, concluded its involvement at this year's CPhI & P-MEC Expo, a hybrid conclave hosted between 24th to 26th November 2021 at India Expo Centre – Greater Noida, New Delhi, and at the Online Conference & Networking event held between 15th to 30th November 2021.

The conclave witnessed participation from key influencers and leading figures across the pharmaceutical industry, and hosted domestic and foreign drug makers, contract service providers and pharma machinery players under one roof, providing them with a chance to craft future growth plans together.

India's pharmaceutical market is in the midst of a growth spurt, having increased in value from $21bn in 2016 to $29bn in 2020 – a figure that is expected to reach $41bn by 2024. Key industry drivers include a rise in disease prevalence, economic growth and higher disposable incomes, improvements in the healthcare infrastructure and a growth in the number of people covered by health insurance. In a bid to stay afloat during the need to step up the demand towards high quality, low-cost pharma solutions, CPhI & P-MEC India has curated a gateway to network with industry peers for the latest trends and innovative solutions that the market has to offer.

The event is geared towards building pharma community engagements, network amongst the fraternity and source innovative solutions on-site from exhibitors who have footprints both domestically and globally and cover the entire pharma supply chain - from APIs, machinery, technology, packaging, outsourcing, finished products and biopharmaceuticals. Alongside the expo, and under the aegis of the India Pharma Week, an exclusive and strategic closed door CEO Roundtable meeting took place, inviting  the top leaders of India's pharmaceutical companies. The 'CEO Roundtable' was conducted on November 24 in partnership with Informa Intelligence, whose perspectives and key discussion points will also yield a white paper report.

The pharama industry is anticipated to have a steady growth trajectory and the event organised by CPhI India has focused on the key driving factors for the same. The expansion of medicine manufacturing pertaining to the evolving epidemiological profile of the country will be instrumental for India being the preferred drug manufacturing destination on a global scale. Additionally, the event aims to encourage the development of the research-based pharma fraternity.

Concluding the CPhI – P-MEC India show, Mr Poornachandra Tejasvi, Senior Director, Emerging Markets, India, at Informa Pharma Intelligence, said, "We, at Informa Pharma Intelligence, were delighted to witness the overwhelming response at CPhI & P-MEC India 2021 event and we're glad that we could partner with CPhI to host this common platform for the pharmaceutical industry. With challenges and opportunities evolving at a global scale, through this event we looked to discuss the possibilities for not only providing solutions to the healthcare needs of the country but also to the world. With India's strength in global generics market, Indian pharma and biotech companies are now gearing up to transition into R&D and innovation to establish themselves as key players to develop Biosimilars, Novel Chemical Entities, Novel Biological Entities and Innovative Therapies for the global and Indian pharmaceutical markets, for which Informa Pharma Intelligence is closely partnering to aid in this effort. The event provided a great opportunity to reconnect with our stakeholders of the pharmaceutical world and offer data intelligence and analysis on par with the recent industry trends."

 "The Indian pharmaceutical market is growing exponentially, around twice the world market growth rate. While its generics market is growing strong, it is also evolving into a cradle for new drugs. Therefore, with India being one of the strongest emerging markets in the global pharma industry, it presents great opportunities for all international pharmaceutical companies to explore; we are glad that the platform by CPhI & P-MEC India could enrich the exhibitors with new pharma solutions and help businesses find the right partners, with the hybrid expo showcasing the full drug development supply-chain from exporting, outsourcing, manufacturing, machinery, regulations, pricing, and market access to, packaging, labelling, and digitalization. We look forward to hosting CPhI P-MEC in the coming year's again."

Prescryptive Health Partners with Lilly on First-to-Market Value-Based Program to Stabilize Insulin Pricing

Prescryptive Health | December 16, 2022

Prescryptive Health, a healthcare technology company on a mission to rewrite the script for the U.S. pharmaceutical market, today announced a partnership with Eli Lilly and Company on a new and first-to-market subscription model to help lower costs for people who pay for their Lilly insulin through their employer-sponsored benefits. Through a flat, per-member, per-month subscription fee, employers can offer insulin to their employees with predictable, affordable, and transparent costs. This unique value-based program is designed to create price stability related to insulin utilization, with Lilly refunding a portion of the subscription fee if an employer's total medical spend increases over time for their employees who live with diabetes. "We are proud to partner with Lilly on this unique and first-to-market value-based program. This solution challenges the traditional drug pricing model and reduces the burden on employers who sponsor pharmacy benefits. The result is that it insulates employers against increased drug prices and aligns interests to focus on patient access and health outcomes." Chris Blackley, Prescryptive Health CEO This new program can help address controversial rebates in the pharmacy benefit manager pricing model and will be available through Prescryptive free of any margin or price mark-up, further reducing the cost to employers, health plans, and ultimately healthcare consumers. Additionally, the program offers opportunities for employers to supply insulin at lower costs, or at no cost, to their employees. Added benefits for employers participating in the program include the Prescryptive mobile experience that supports patient engagement and adherence for diabetes care. "In the U.S., more than 34 million people have diabetes, and some people who have employer-based insurance still need affordability solutions to ensure they don't pay too much out-of-pocket for their insulin," said Mike Mason, President, Lilly Diabetes. "At Lilly, we strive to provide new solutions to help lower costs at the pharmacy, including partnering with Prescryptive Health to ensure people with diabetes have access to affordable options to help them reach their treatment goals." According to the American Diabetes Association people with diagnosed diabetes spend about 2.3 times more on medical costs than those without diabetes, which impacts not only every individual patient and plan member, but also employers who sponsor their benefits coverage. Additionally, costs related to the condition include $3.3 billion in increased absenteeism. About Prescryptive Health Prescryptive Health is a healthcare technology company delivering solutions that empower consumers. Prescryptive's secure, mobile-first products connect consumers, pharmacists, and employers, ultimately providing people with the information they need to make informed decisions and take control of their health.
