Model N, Inc. (NYSE: MODN), the leader in cloud revenue management solutions, today announced several major platform updates and new features as part of its Spring 2020 Life Sciences product release. Enhancements to the Model N Revenue Cloud for Life Sciences include new software integrations, an improved user interface (UI), support for advanced medical claims processing, and extended pricing and rebate management capabilities, as well as extended support for complex contracts to facilitate greater compliance with financial regulations, including Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX).
“Model N’s Spring 2020 release puts our life sciences, pharmaceutical and medtech customers first, with enhancements that improve operational efficiency and reduce revenue leakage while allowing them to meet the challenges of today’s fast-moving regulatory and business environment,” said Suresh Kannan, Senior Vice President and Chief Product Officer for Model N.
Model N’s Spring 2020 release continues to enhance and future-proof the company’s cloud platform, supporting ongoing digital transformation efforts while delivering key improvements in usability, workflow and performance. These updates are particularly significant given the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, as numerous life sciences companies rely on Model N software to help bring therapies, diagnostics, and ultimately new vaccines to market as part of the global fight against COVID-19.
“Healthcare industry firms are leveraging cloud platforms to achieve greater visibility and efficiency across the enterprise, in order to stay competitive and maximize revenues wherever possible,” said Mike Townsend, Research Director, Life Sciences Commercial Strategies at IDC. “It makes sense, particularly in the high-pressure environment associated with the coronavirus pandemic, that companies are embracing cloud-based solutions like Model N to better manage their supply chains and business operations for efficiency and revenue, in order to achieve better financial results and deliver new products to the marketplace more quickly.”
Key features and upgrades in the Spring 2020 release include:
