September 2023

SAN FRANCISCO – September 26, 2023  Tivic Health® Systems, Inc. (“Tivic”, Nasdaq: TIVC), a health tech company that develops and commercializes bioelectronic medicine, announced today that it has signed an agreement with InStep Health® to introduce the Company’s bioelectronic sinus device, ClearUP®, to over 2,500 healthcare providers (HCP) and their patients.

InStep Health assists pharmaceutical, OTC, and consumer-packaged brands to reach consumers at the center of care, whether in the doctor’s office, pharmacy, or within the store aisles. The company offers a fully integrated messaging platform that combines offline tactile and online digital media activation with access to over 250,000 HCPs, working in more than 177,000 offices, and exclusive programs in 40,000+ chain and community pharmacies nationwide.

Tivic’s program with InStep Health will reach allergists, ENTs, and primary care providers through in-office provider education kits, provider 1:1 email campaigns, and digital advertising.  The 4-month program will run from November 2023 until February 2024 with the goals of educating HCPs and driving patient awareness of ClearUP during allergy, cold, and flu seasons.

“The InStep Health program is a cost-effective way to reach key physicians who are highly influential in the buying decision for patients with allergic rhinitis, sinus infections, head pain, and congestion,” says Jennifer Ernst, CEO of Tivic. “We’re looking forward to launching the program as an important step to grow the medical community’s awareness, provide education, and increase HCP recommendations and sales.”

Tivic ClearUP’s non-invasive and targeted approach to the treatment of inflammatory health conditions gives consumers a preferred drug-free, FDA approved, and clinically proven solution compared to their current allergy and sinus treatments.
