The platform streamlines processes for doctors, patients, drug manufacturers, and specialty pharmacies, resulting in cost reduction and increased revenue for specialty pharmacies and drug manufacturers, as well as faster access to life-saving medications for patients. As the “smart DocuSign for healthcare” RxLightning plans to become the dominant player that brings digital transformation to healthcare segments still reliant on manual paper processes.
