Valeritas, Inc., a leader in simple, disposable basal-bolus insulin delivery technology designed for patients with Type 2 diabetes, announced today that it has received a 2014 Cardinal Health Supply Chain Excellence Award. The award was presented October 16th at Cardinal's annual Business Partners Conference in Columbus, Ohio.
The Cardinal Health Supply Chain Excellence Award recipients are judged across a variety of metrics specifically targeted at the importance of developing collaborative relationships with manufacturers and providing exceptional service to each and every one of Cardinal's valued business partners. These metrics recognize actions taken by its business partners to enhance service levels and create efficiencies in the supply chain, including execution on new product launches. Of the over 800 companies eligible for the 2014 award, only 104 received the award.
"We are honored to receive this award and would like to thank Cardinal for recognizing Valeritas. Receiving this award is a result of our commitment to working with our wholesaler partners to support our goal of making V-Go® readily available to patients, especially at retail pharmacies," said Kristine Peterson, Chief Executive Officer of Valeritas. "Providing exceptional service throughout the distribution channel will be important as we continue to execute our strategy of increasing our U.S. commercial reach and bringing this simple, effective and discreet treatment option to the larger population of patients with Type 2 diabetes requiring insulin."
