McKesson's Patient Relationship Solutions division has teamed up with Physicians Interactive to bolster the reach of its drug voucher and coupon programs. The agreement will allow PI network members to offer physicians the vouchers and/or coupons along with e-prescriptions.

Shire announced that it is digging deep into rare diseases this year. The company's research will culminate in a 2013 rare diseases impact report that will outline the “health, psycho-social, societal and economic impact of rare disease in patient and medical communities.” The report will be based on research that includes surveys of patients, caregivers, physicians, payers and thought leaders in the US and UK.
