CareMetx was founded in 2011 by two longtime industry executives, Bob Dresing and Mark Hansan, who started in the patient support field in the 1980s. Dresing is now chairman; Hansan is CEO. In 2018, it acquired VirMedica, a leading e-services company in the Hub industry, and BioSolutia, an award-winning Hub company in Lake Mary, FL. Today it has five offices and operates as a national patient access company offering turn-key solutions, proprietary e-services and collaborative patient support programs. Most recently, it launched a new business unit, OutcomeRx, designed to provide holistic solutions for new personalized medicines, such as cellular and genetic therapies, that require innovative value-based contracting between manufacturers and payers.
