Feb. 21, 2007 -- MedInitiatives, a Rancho Cordova, Calif.-based health-care analytics company, is partnering with ChainDrugStore.net, an online communications network for drug manufacturers, to provide pharmacy claims data to its manufacturers and other network members, the company said Wednesday.

The deal will allow ChainDrugstore.net to use MedInitiatives's analytics application to better measure the impact of manufacturer communications on driving market share within its pharmacy network, the company said.

Matt Simas, MedInitiatives president and CEO, called the partnership a "perfect fit" for both companies.

MedInitiatives ranked No. 380 on the 2006 Inc. 500 list of the nation's fastest-growing private companies.
