Headquartered in Weston, Florida, BioMatrix was formed in 2015 through the merger of Matrix Health Group and BiologicTx, two nationally recognized specialty pharmacy companies that share a common business model focused on high-touch, clinically sophisticated patient-centric care management and delivering an equally compelling quality and economic value proposition to payers and providers. With a current network of 7 pharmacies, the Company is a leading provider for patients with blood disorders, organ transplants, and other chronic and acute diseases and conditions. IBioMatrix’s proprietary Digital Health platform optimizes transplant center operations, improves care coordination and, importantly, differentiates the Company’s strategic position and new patient acquisition.
