Why we started CCX

Nathan's freshman year of college he visited India for an internship at a rural hospital. He ended up returning throughout his studies to do health economics research on healthcare access.  After graduation, he moved back to India to start PharmaSecure, to develop inexpensive anti-counterfeiting technologies that could be implemented across the pharmaceutical supply chain to ensure patients received authentic medicines.  
While living in Mumbai and doing this work, he saw a screening of a film about the struggle of getting HIV drug access to emerging markets. After the screening, Dr. Yusuf Hameid, about whom the film was made, spoke and took questions.  Remembering his research back in college on healthcare having multiple equilibria in different contexts, he was confident that there were win-win ways to solve access – after all, whenever a patient can’t get a drug, a drug company loses potential revenue. And so he set out to find a way to solve this.
As he spoke with leaders in market access and patient access from HTA agencies, Payers, and pharma companies, he realized that the strategies needed to increase access already existed. A lot of thought had already been given to cell and gene therapies and combination oncology therapies and how to get them to market. But these legacy manual processes used in modern market access couldn’t scale to the number of deals that needed to happen. Innovative payment models that had proven to get these early specialty therapies to market were being rationed because there wasn’t capacity to manage them without new infrastructure.
Meanwhile, Biotech and pharma companies had clinical pipelines full of the types of therapies that would need innovative payment models to get to market.  With early support from the team at Accel India, he brought together colleagues with deep experience in pharma, HTA and building financial trading software, and set out to develop that infrastructure.
