Jeff Spafford

President and CEO

Jeff Spafford has served as AssistRx President and CEO since co-founding the firm with Edward Hensley in 2009. Spafford has more than 20 years of experience in leadership roles within the specialty pharmaceutical industry.

In 1998, Spafford established OncoScripts, one of the first specialty pharmacies. OncoScripts developed a chemotherapy drug management model and contracted directly with large, national payers. OncoScripts was soon acquired by CuraScript, a Florida-based specialty pharmacy with a mission to oversee specialty drugs on behalf of managed care payers. In 2001, he relocated to Central Florida and transitioned into his new role as executive vice president for CuraScript, in which he was responsible for sales and marketing.

In 2005, Spafford co-founded and served as president and CEO of Advanced Care Scripts. After three successful years, he sold the company and shifted management of the business to Omnicare. In 2009, he co-founded AssistRx with the mission to deliver leading technology and people solutions that connect every stakeholder in the specialty therapy journey. AssistRx solutions accelerate patient access to therapy and improve outcomes.

Spafford earned a bachelor’s degree in economics from St. Lawrence University and a Master of Business Administration from Harvard Business School.
