This Summer has included growth across WRB’s service pillars: Reimbursement and Patient Access, Medical Information, Inside Sales / Tele-detailing and Premiere Customer Care.

WRB is supporting a copayment foundation, which assists patients living with chronic and life-altering illnesses in paying their share of prescription drug copayments, deductibles, and health insurance premiums. With nearly 30 Reimbursement Specialists dedicated to this program, WRB is providing premiere multichannel copayment assistance and customer care to its patients, family members and other key stakeholders.

WRB is also working with a health and wellness company focused on delivering groundbreaking solutions made specifically for women. WRB is delivering inside sales / tele-detailing support by reaching out to OBGYN offices to introduce the consumer device and gain commitment from patient facing practitioners to recommend the product to their patients.

In addition, WRB is collaborating with a global pharmaceutical company that is focused on the commercialization of novel, proprietary products for the acute treatment of underserved medical needs including central nervous system conditions. For this program WRB is supporting its patients and healthcare professionals by providing medical information support, the initial intake of Adverse Events and the initial intake of Product Quality Complaints.

“This Summer, we added new jobs into the community including Program Managers, Reimbursement Specialists, Medical Information professionals, Inside Sales Representatives and Premiere Customer Care Specialists. With the opening of WRB’s newest facility, it continues to be a priority for us to provide the most positive work environment for our employees.
