Harrow Partners with Leading Healthcare Market Access Technology Platforms

Agreements Support the Upcoming Launch of VEVYE®

NASHVILLE, Tenn.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–$HROW–Harrow (Nasdaq: HROW), a leading U.S. eyecare pharmaceutical company, today announced that it has partnered with three leading healthcare technology platforms to expand U.S. availability of VEVYE® (cyclosporine ophthalmic solution) 0.1%, a patented, non‑preserved, twice-daily (BID) dosed, ophthalmic solution prescription drug based on a “water-free” semifluorinated alkane (SFA) eyedrop technology. VEVYE, uniquely dispensed in a 10 microliter drop, is the first and only cyclosporine-based product indicated for treating both signs and symptoms of dry eye disease (DED).


Harrow’s three market access partnerships for VEVYE include:

PhilRx is an innovative patient access platform that provides end-to-end visibility into the entire prescription life cycle, starting when the eyecare professional (ECP) writes a VEVYE prescription electronically to PhilRx directly from their electronic health record (EHR). Using the PhilRx platform simplifies the prior authorization process (PA) for physicians by providing one-click submission of PAs, streamlining the insurance coverage process for patients, and increasing the chances of insurance reimbursement. PhilRx offers a variety of patient benefits, including best price, fast free shipping, text refill reminders, and best‑in-class customer service.

Apollo Care is a comprehensive program designed to establish and manage copay program deployment, optimizing patient access and affordability of VEVYE.

PARx Solutions is a web-based technology stack that helps prescribers – free of charge – overcome cumbersome, frustrating, and time-consuming challenges resulting from prior authorizations, thus ensuring that patients get the medication prescribed.

In commenting on the announcement, Mark L. Baum, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Harrow, said, “Harrow was founded on a commitment to patient access. Our 360-degree approach to market access for VEVYE, including these new partnerships with PhilRx, Apollo Care, and PARx, is designed to ensure that all patients who can benefit from VEVYE and who are prescribed VEVYE – can get VEVYE.

“We believe VEVYE represents an important new prescription choice in the U.S. dry eye disease market, and we are excited to streamline the prior authorization process, guiding patients through their insurance coverage and ensuring competitive pricing – with minimum hassle. Harrow’s VEVYE market access program perfectly aligns with our commitment to providing physicians and their patients with innovative and affordable ophthalmic pharmaceutical products and the Harrow team eagerly anticipates the availability of VEVYE – next week.”
