Denise Pierce

Denise has more than 30 years of leadership experience in sales, product management, new business development, national accounts, policy management, reimbursement planning and medical economics. This experience was gained in roles with biopharmaceutical and healthcare consulting industries, including Pfizer, Bristol-Myers Squibb, AMGEN, and Covance Health Economics and Outcome Services. She possesses extensive knowledge of hospital inpatient/outpatient and physician office reimbursement systems, having effectively positioned novel drugs, devices, and services with payers in each setting.

Denise’s expertise is in specialty drugs and biologics used in oncology, dialysis, and rare diseases. These drugs often have a higher cost to the healthcare system and subsequently require strong value propositions. She has also successfully created and executed market access plans for novel technologies for age-related macular degeneration, allergy, Alzheimer’s disease and cancer diagnostics. Clients have commented that Denise has a knack for clearly understanding their need to pinpoint strategic recommendations that are executable and that link to specific outcomes.

Denise endeavors to connect various stakeholders such as providers/medical specialty societies, payers, employers and biopharmaceutical companies, to engage in robust conversations that support getting the right treatment to the right patient.

Denise is also a well-known author and speaker on the complexities of patient access in specific disease areas. Examples of societies tapping into Denise’s expertise include:

  • American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO)
  • National Renal Administrators Association (NRAA)
  • Medical Group Management Association (MGMA)
  • The Association of Community Cancer Centers (ACCC)
  • The Association of Value-Based Cancer Care (AVBCC)

Denise received her Bachelor of Science degree from Fairleigh Dickinson University in New Jersey.

Weimaraner/Lab Mix

Morgan is a Weimaraner/lab mix who was rescued in 2009 from a dire situation where he was starved and significantly emaciated at 48 lbs. He couldn’t take in food or water, and my husband and I had to sign waivers when adopting him, as he was not expected to live. Morgan apparently found his forever home, because he is a very healthy 95 lb companion now.

He was named Morgan, as in the Welsh heritage that means he is a brave sailor being brave of heart – which he had to be to survive his difficulties. The name Morgan also comes with a very appropriate character definition, which is to be rebellious and adventurous. Whether sneaking into offices and scoping out trash cans for special treats like an apple core, or running into the woods when I’ve clearly told him not to (and I know he has really good hearing), somehow his big brown eyes and giant nightly hugs let him get away with this.

Morgan LOVES cardboard and is always on hand to help break down a cardboard box, or carry one around on his head, bouncing into walls as he tries to transport his prize. The only thing that might distract him from his cardboard is someone breaking open a banana – his absolute favorite treat (well, really, any food will do).

Morgan loves everyone, and I hope you have the chance to meet him to see that – of course you can REALLY win his heart with a dog treat, and he’ll remember you forever (just ask the UPS man)!
