September 28, 2021, Yardley, PA – Managed Markets Insight & Technology (MMIT) and Evaluate (a Welsh, Carson, Anderson & Stowe and Hg portfolio company)—which joined forces last month to become a $1.6 billion global pharma commercial intelligence provider—announced the acquisition of Panalgo, a premier healthcare data analytics company that serves many of the largest biopharmaceutical, medical device and contract research organizations around the globe.
“MMIT/Evaluate and Panalgo share a vision of generating evidence and insights faster, all to help patients get timely access to lifesaving therapies,” said MMIT CEO Mike Gallup. The addition of Panalgo fits perfectly into our strategy of building a best-in-breed technology- and services-driven healthcare business servicing pharma, biotech and beyond.”
With this acquisition, MMIT/Evaluate aim to transform the process of bringing drugs to market. By incorporating Panalgo’s flagship Instant Health Data (IHD) software, MMIT/Evaluate will offer customers an end-to-end commercialization platform that provides critical, data-driven insights instantly, allowing life sciences leaders to make better decisions faster.
“The ability to quickly generate insights, inform decisions on the effectiveness and safety of new treatments, and reduce barriers to accessing care, all fulfill a huge need in the marketplace,” said Panalgo CEO Joseph Menzin, Ph.D. “With Panalgo’s best-in-class platform, MMIT’s expansive base of over 1,300 biopharma and payer customers, and its gold-standard formulary data, we are well-equipped to support clients from end to end.”
On Nov. 1, 2021, Jordan Menzin, CTO, will become CEO of Panalgo, and Joseph Menzin will transition to the role of Executive Chairman. Panalgo will continue operating under its brand to provide the same innovative IHD software and high-quality customer support.
“I’m excited to lead this next phase of Panalgo’s growth,” said Jordan Menzin. “Together, we’ll help clients solve problems by leveraging quicker, more efficient insights—and, ultimately, get therapies into the hands of the patients who need them.”
For nearly two decades, MMIT has been solely focused on solving the “what and why” of market access, and has been a trusted, go-to-market partner to more than 1,300 biopharma and payer customers. We believe that patients who need lifesaving treatments shouldn’t face delays because accessing drugs can be confusing. As the leading provider of market access data, analytics and insights, our expert teams of clinicians, data specialists and market researchers provide clarity and confidence so that our clients can make better decisions.
