About us

We founded Axian because we believe that when it comes to patient safety, “ticking a box” isn’t enough. We want to help the pharmaceutical industry deliver better healthcare outcomes, and we do this by changing how information is provided to patients and HCPs.

  • We understand that each “stakeholder” and “end user” is a person with their own priorities and preferences, which need to be taken into account when designing any successful safety intervention.

  • We believe that data plays an important role when it comes to designing initiatives and reviewing their effectiveness. We understand the need for privacy and that this should be captured and handled in a safe and effective manner. We also believe any results or insights should be placed within a broader context, as it only forms part of the puzzle.

  • We partner with our clients to co-create tailored solutions that drive meaningful outcomes for all stakeholders, fostering a culture of innovation and continuous improvement.

Our history

Axian was founded in January 2021 following a management buyout from Huron Consulting. In March 2024, Axian US was established, with Sherry Mills taking the lead. Our combined expertise spans over 20 years in REMS and Risk Management, with a proven track record of implementing 20+ multi-country risk minimisation programs across more than 60 countries.

With the introduction of Axian US, we bring unparalleled expertise in navigating the complexities of REMS, supported by a longstanding collaboration with the FDA since the inception of REMS in 2007.

Our approach is reinforced by a validated cloud-based digital platform, ensuring scalability and flexibility to accommodate local variations as necessary. Our solutions seamlessly integrate with other systems, such as CRM and supply chain systems, facilitating smooth integration and optimisation of operations.
