Data Solution for the Entire Product Lifecycle

Data Solution for the Entire Product Lifecycle

As an Express Scripts company, UBC has unmatched access to real-world data that can be leveraged to develop smarter, more efficient solutions across the product lifecycle.


ExpressConnect utilizes medical and demographic data in a highly intelligent, targeted way—to find the right sites and patients for your clinical studies. ExpressConnect enhances traditional approaches to site and patient recruitment. This gives our clients a distinct advantage for site recruitment, HCP referral programs, and patient-directed recruitment campaigns. By taking a data-driven approach to clinical trial site and patient recruitment, UBC is helping to get innovative drugs to market faster than ever.

  • Geo-mapping: Patients of interest are matched to the specific physicians who treat them, quickly pinpointing optimal investigative sites and areas to conduct direct-to-patient outreach.
  • Clinician Targeting: Clinicians with high concentrations of relevant patients are vetted against UBC’s proprietary database of more than 2 million experienced clinical investigators, and directly invited to participate in the trial. Research-naive clinicians with large databases of potential patients are then invited to refer their patients to investigative sites nearby, maximizing the impact of the data.
  • Accelerated Patient Enrollment: Targeted patient outreach within a cohort of approximately 50 million Express Scripts PBM members who have opted in to receive invitations for relevant clinical research studies. Pre-qualifying patients based upon medical and prescription claims data results in response rates as high as 20%, depending on the patient population and study. Additionally, this method enhances ROI by reducing time for patient qualification, enhancing patient screening accuracy, and driving call center volume down.


MediCUBE enables HIPAA- and Safe-Harbor-compliant access to de-identified prescription and medical claims information for more than 130 million unique patients. This platform blends data assets from the Express Scripts PBM, the Express Scripts Home Delivery Pharmacy, and the Accredo® Specialty Pharmacy.
