Four prominent pharmaceutical solutions providers launch Norstella to drive innovation and get patients access to life-saving therapies faster

United under Norstella, each brand’s key solutions and expertise will help life-sciences-focused companies get answers—not just insights—from pipeline to patient

May 3, 2022 – Creating a hub for rapid innovation, four prominent pharmaceutical solutions providers—Evaluate, MMIT, Panalgo and The Dedham Group—are thrilled to announce the launch of Norstella.

The companies, which have come together over the past year via a series of acquisitions and strategic partnerships, are now united under one organization and shared mission. Norstella will use the combined assets of each business to offer innovative solutions that will enhance how pharmaceutical manufacturers bring therapies to patients.

“By launching Norstella, we’re taking the next step toward ensuring that all patients have access to the therapies that they need,” said Norstella CEO Mike Gallup. “The companies that are united under this transformative organization are bound by their passion for the patient and our shared belief that together, we can make healthcare work better.”

Norstella’s mission centers on a patient’s ability to access a therapy. Unfortunately, there are many barriers that prevent patients from picking up their prescription at the pharmacy counter or receiving a provider-administered therapy, and those barriers manifest at every stage of the drug development life cycle, from early-stage R&D to commercialization.

Uniting under Norstella allows these key brands to help life sciences companies make informed decisions on patient access along the entire drug development journey. Building on each brand’s breadth of expertise and solutions provides clients with game-changing answers, not just insights. As a united organization, Norstella’s companies will create innovation that combines each brand’s assets and expertise to give pharma manufacturers a clearer and more predictive path to delivering therapies to patients no matter the therapeutic area or size of the organization.

As the pharmaceutical market continues to evolve at a rapid pace—and patient access remains a key component of pharma commercial strategy—this transformative unification will help life sciences companies get the right therapies to the right patients at the right time.

“Helping life sciences organizations put together the patient access puzzle will result in a better pharmaceutical marketplace—one that’s both innovative and accessible,” added Gallup. “Because at the end of the day, no one should be prevented from accessing the medication they need.”
