BioRx Acquires Coagulife Pharmacy
Acquisition Expands Company’s Offering to Individuals with Bleeding Disorders
Cincinnati, Ohio (July 9, 2012) — BioRx announced today that it has acquired Coagulife Pharmacy, a
specialized provider of clotting factor medications and supplies for the treatment of hemophilia and
related bleeding disorders. Coagulife is based in Savage, Minnesota.
“The addition of Coagulife talent and expertise will contribute significantly to our leadership in home
hemophilia care,” said Phil Rielly, president and co-founder of BioRx. “We are excited to grow together in
delivering outstanding personalized care to the bleeding disorders community.”
Coagulife was founded in 2004 by brothers Jeff and Daniel Kallberg. Jeff lives with hemophilia and speaks
nationally about the importance of physical activity for hemophilia patients. He is also a licensed physical
therapist and a black belt in Tae Kwon Do.
“We’ve known Jeff for many years,” said Rielly. “He is deeply respected in the hemophilia community and
the physical therapy profession. He and Daniel have built a successful business that complements our
capabilities very well. Combined, both companies will continue to thrive in a highly competitive business
Through Kallberg’s physical therapy leadership, BioRx expects to deliver value-added services for patients
who live with musculoskeletal complications caused by hemophilia. Building on Coagulife’s existing
health and wellness platform, BioRx will develop a national joint care and rehabilitative support program
for patients who have chronic joint damage or are recovering from an orthopedic surgical procedure.
Joint complications are common among hemophilia patients and can increase the frequency and severity
of internal bleeding.
“We are truly excited to expand our reach and capabilities through this agreement,” said Kallberg. “BioRx
is widely regarded as a patient-focused, community-oriented company, and that has been our mission as
well. Together we’ll be able to provide hemophilia patients with enhanced homecare services that are
unavailable anywhere else in the country.”
Coagulife Pharmacy was created to address the extreme expense of treating hemophilia today. The
company brings together innovative services into a single program to better manage the disease,
including disease management, dose management, specialty pharmacy services, physical therapy, and
nursing coordination – all designed to improve outcomes and decrease costs. By focusing on prevention
and on overall health, Coagulife has been able to significantly reduce expensive factor infusions and
nearly eliminate hospitalizations.
