Assertio Holdings, Inc. Partners with Cove, a Leading Migraine Telemedicine Platform, To Launch Direct to Patient Digital Campaign to Increase Accessibility of CAMBIA® (diclofenac potassium) and SPRIX® (ketorolac tromethamine)
LAKE FOREST, Ill. and NEW YORK, May 05, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Assertio Holdings, Inc. (“Assertio” or “the Company”) (NASDAQ: ASRT), and Cove, a leading migraine telemedicine platform, today announced a collaboration to make CAMBIA (diclofenac potassium) for oral solution and SPRIX (ketorolac tromethamine) nasal spray available to Cove’s patient population. This collaboration will make it easier for more patients to gain access to high-quality physician care.
Using Cove’s online telemedicine platform, patients complete a consultation with a licensed physician who can prescribe a variety of treatment options, including CAMBIA for a patient’s acute treatment of migraine attacks with or without aura in adults and SPRIX for short-term (up to 5 days) management of moderate to moderately severe pain which requires analgesia at the opioid level in adults.
“We are thrilled to be working with Assertio to provide CAMBIA and SPRIX as options to the appropriate patients,” said Caroline Hofmann, General Manager of Cove. “We know that patients need more options to treat their conditions and convenient access to quality care.”
“Partnering with Cove, a leading telemedicine platform, furthers our strategy by enhancing our foundational digital platform and virtual engagement efforts to better serve our patients,” said Dan Peisert, President and Chief Executive Officer of Assertio. “This is an exciting direct to patient model for those who prefer a convenient, digital telemedicine option.”
