New Ozempic “Real-World Pragmatic Study” with Anthem

Novo Nordisk and Anthem’s outcomes research subsidiary, HealthCore, announced they are working together on a “real-world pragmatic study” (called SEPRA as in SEmaglutide PRAgmatic) evaluating Ozempic vs. standard of care (defined as commercially available oral or injectable antidiabetic medication other than semaglutide). The study initiated in July 2018 and is currently recruiting patients. Below, FENIX provides insight into potential motivating factors for Novo conducting the study (e.g. pilot for an outcomes-based contract).
