NJBIZ, New Jersey’s leading business journal, has recognized EmpiRx Health as a 2023 Healthcare Hero, in the “Innovation” category.

The Healthcare Heroes program celebrates excellence, promotes innovation, and honors the efforts of those making a significant impact on the quality of healthcare in New Jersey. The “Innovation” category spotlights individuals and organizations responsible for the discovery or development of a new procedure, device, service, program, or treatment that can save lives or improve quality of life at scale.

Given NJ’s legacy as a hub of medical science and innovation, earning a place on this list is a remarkable achievement for a healthcare services manager, and validates our core belief that driving innovation in the benefits space can improve the health of populations and patients—both locally and nationwide.

EmpiRx Health stands alone as the industry’s only value-based PBM, shattering the misconception that savings must come at the expense of quality healthcare. We’ve redefined the conventional volume-oriented benefits model through a Population Health Management solution that centers pharmacists within patient care teams to optimize health and financial outcomes.

By establishing ourselves as a category creator and thought leader, we’ve revolutionized the way pharmacy benefits are delivered. Our innovative, value-based model has enabled us to scale our services to reach a broader population of plan sponsors and members across the country.
