Morrisville, N.C., Sept. 20, 2023 – TrialCard Incorporated, a rapidly growing, fully integrated life sciences commercialization partner, today announced it is rebranding as Mercalis. Simple shorthand for 'commercializing life sciences', the new name reflects the company's vision to help life sciences companies enhance patient lives.
Over the past several years, Mercalis has been implementing a deliberate strategy to expand its capabilities to support life sciences companies more comprehensively in their efforts to navigate complexity and accelerate value in a rapidly evolving marketplace. Years of robust organic growth and purposeful inorganic expansion, including seven acquisitions over the past five years, have further diversified the company beyond patient support into broader life sciences commercialization services. This transformation prompted the development and launch of the new brand—Mercalis—to encompass it all.
"Patient support services are increasingly the foundation upon which many life sciences companies build their commercialization strategies," said Mercalis CEO Scott Dulitz. "Since we already offered market-leading patient support services capabilities, it was logical for us to expand into new areas of commercialization like market access data and healthcare provider engagement. Mercalis helps clients at every stage of development, from strategic consulting that drives key commercialization initiatives, to executional solutions that deliver on our shared mission of enhancing patient lives."
"The new Mercalis logo symbolizes how much goes into our approach to navigating healthcare complexity for our life sciences clients using an integrated platform with a spectrum of end-to-end value-enhancing capabilities," added Landy Townsend, Mercalis Vice President of Marketing and Communications. "Mercalis has been growing into our brand and name for over 20 years. This name change also positions us for future growth as we continue to respond to the needs of an ever-changing healthcare marketplace."
Mercalis, a portfolio company of Odyssey Investment Partners, employs more than 1,800 passionate associates who support over 500 clients in navigating complexity and accelerating value to enhance patient lives. To learn more about Mercalis:
