About the Biosim•Exchange

ACE and Biosimilars Leadership

Arthritis Consumer Experts (ACE) has been a patient-organization leader in biosimilars discussions since 2009 and has gone on to conduct workshops, webinars and education programs, sharing information with multi-stakeholder groups across Canada.

Over the past seven years, ACE has consistently communicated its support for the development of medication safety, efficacy and health technology assessment review processes that appropriately offers choice and broadens access. Drawing from this experience, ACE has created an information hub for patients to get the latest biosimilars news and background analysis through the Biosim•Exchange.

The Biosim•Exchange provides timely, balanced information for patients and reports on public and private health insurance formulary policy and listing decisions specific to biosimilars. With research-based information and education, patients can have a full therapy conversation with their rheumatologist (or other specialist) in order to best decide on their choice of medication, including originator biologics and biosimilars.

Biosimilars offer patients and physicians another choice in the treatment of inflammatory arthritis. ACE is meeting with public formulary and private payer decision makers to provide its membership’s views on the placement of biosimilars in therapy as research evidence and policy evolve.

ACE continues its commitment to support the need for quality information on biosimilars for the arthritis community and other chronic diseases, such as diabetes, oncology and gastrointestinal diseases.
