Arvato Supply Chain Solutions and Hypertrust Patient Data Care join forces

Gütersloh/Munich – Arvato Supply Chain Solutions and Hypertrust Patient Data Care (HPDC) have started a strategic partnership. Together, they offer a combined and fully integrated solution for Cell & Gene therapy manufacturers. The solution helps to orchestrate advanced and personalized therapies out of one hand. With this partnership, the companies offer a turnkey solution that provides manufacturers to receive all order-2-cash services as well as an integrated IT platform to manage advanced therapies and its involved participants.

Advanced therapy medicinal products (ATMP) that are individually tailored for each patient offer groundbreaking new opportunities to treat serious and often rare diseases and disorders. The aim is to develop medicines that are based on human genes, tissues or cells to initiate processes for regeneration. “For pharmaceutical manufacturers, these therapy processes are costly to manage and difficult to control. Complex and patient-centric processes as well as numerous stakeholders require new supply chain strategies”, explains Dr. Thorsten Winkelmann, President Healthcare of Arvato Supply Chain Solutions.

“Managing complexity, driving automation and achieving transparency are the biggest challenges pharmaceutical companies face when they scale an advanced therapy from clinical trial to full commercialization. Arvato and HPDC tackle this challenge by bringing an end-2-end-offering to the market”, explains Andreas Göbel, CEO of Hypertrust Patient Data Care. The joint solution creates a unique environment enabling manufacturers to reduce and manage process complexity with highest quality standards based on a harmonized and fully integrated IT platform.

Arvato’s Cell & Gene Orchestration Platform is based on Hypertrust Patient Data Care’s cloud solution technology and addresses the need for safe, seamless and transparent processes. It ensures chain-of-identity (CoI) and chain-of-custody (CoC) across manufacturers, apheresis centers, logistics service providers and all other stakeholders. It is highly configurable and allows customers to grow and scale in every stage of the product life cycle – no matter if it is an allogenic or autologous therapy.

Complementing the Cell & Gene Orchestration Platform, Arvato successfully supports manufacturers with other operational services to deliver therapies to patients from a single source. These include, for example:

  • Operational case managers support clients and key stakeholders by navigating through the complexities of therapy delivery. They align all stakeholders, such as the collection-, manufacturing- and infusion-centers and troubleshoot in unexpected situations to ensure a seamless and frictionless process.
  • Arvato’s logistics site network is equipped with state-of-the-art infrastructure and supports customers’ cold-chain requirements from cryogenic to ambient. The professional staff brings a depth of expertise and understanding in the handling, storage, tracking and distribution of the clients ATMP (Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products).
  • Arvato’s transport management capabilities are globally available and provide customized transport solutions. The required delivery service uses validated carriers. Clients benefit from Arvato’s partnerships with specialized carriers for Cell & Gene requirements and its international network with more than 150 carriers.
  • Even with advanced therapies there is the desire to manage financial flows. Arvato’s financial services include dispatch of invoices, accounts receivable management, dunning and factoring. All services are always provided on behalf of the manufacturer.

“This fully integrated solution enables manufacturers to receive all necessary services out of one hand on one central platform. Our true end-2-end setup provides the right services, processes and orchestration platform that enable successful therapy delivery to increase quality of life”, says Dr. Thorsten Winkelmann, President Healthcare.
