Partnerships & Affiliations

Biograph works in partnership with Amwell

Since 2021, Biograph and Amwell have collaborated to bring digital care capabilities to Life Sciences applications, with a focus on regulated programs like ACNU. Working together, the Biograph and Amwell teams connect strategy with the data and digital care systems necessary for successful implementation and sustainable program performance at scale.

In partnership with Amwell, Biograph clients are able to access the digital capabilities of the Amwell Converge™ platform and apply them to support digital care initiatives.

The Converge platform provides the flexibility for clients to build their optimal hybrid care model and stakeholder experience – leveraging just one component or a combination of many components, all working together seamlessly across the platform.

FDA Rules and Implications

Biograph helps internal, cross-functional teams to understand the intent and intricacies of the ACNU rule from FDA. 

 

Together, we facilitate a team exercise to break down complexities in the rule, highlight key requirements, explore eligibility criteria, and summarize potential benefits and drawbacks for the company's specific products, categories, and future investment decisions.

Assess Investment Options to Inform Business Decisions

Biograph works with client teams to assesses the suitability of product candidates for company investment. In this exercise, called the Biograph BD Thesis, candidates may include products that likely will need an ACNU and may include some that can be pursued via conventional regulatory pathways. The BD Thesis renders a fully auditable business conclusion informed by both qualitative and quantitative inputs.

Engineer New Products and CX for Enduring Value

Once a drug product is identified, Biograph works with the sponsor company to develop a Pre-IND that reflects the chosen regulatory pathway. In the case of ACNU programs, Biograph works with sponsors to design and specify an engaging Consumer Experience (CX) of Additional Labeling and Additional Conditions for safe nonprescription use of the product.

The ACNU Rule
Nonprescription Drug Product With an Additional Condition for Nonprescription Use
FDA logo

Undertreatment of many common diseases or conditions in the United States is a well-recognized public health problem.

Increasing the number of people who are able to obtain for the first time and those who continue on necessary drug therapy could provide improved health outcomes.

FDA believes that ACNU will contribute to improved health outcomes for consumers staying on their medications and will reduce the burdens on the already overburdened health care system, and reduce health care costs.

Every Program is Exclusive to the Sponsor

Although the capabilities and systems are common, every ACNU program is unique to the product and tailored to  the Sponsor's business strategy; thereby each is a proprietary asset of the business

The Biograph ACNU Factory leverages gold standard healthcare processes, systems and data to deliver the appropriate care intervention and fulfill reporting requirements.

Biograph brings standards in methods and process to assure efficient ACNU development and successful results. Within the standards, Sponsors can customize key elements to support marketing objectives.

The Biograph ACNU Factory equally weights the Consumer Experience (CX) aspect of an ACNU program. Every program is designed for least friction and maximum value to consumers/patients.

The Biograph Commitment: Performance and Impact

Our vision is a new generation of care that empowers consumers, increases access to treatment, and reduces burden on the healthcare system.

 

Our mission is to facilitate the approvals and launch of new nonprescription products and improve adherence to Rx treatment with the application of data, services, and technology in the consumer journey.

 

Guiding our work is ongoing interaction with FDA, regarding the ACNU rule, and more recently the, PMI rule, both intended to advance digital labeling as a means to reverse undertreatment and noncompliance to drug therapy.
