“How long would it have taken me to put this together? Probably forever. I don’t know that I could do it…we don’t have the capability to mine our data like this.”

Prescription drug prices continue to rise faster than the rate of reimbursement, and these increases are often unrelated to the medication’s actual value or demonstrated outcomes. These challenges are exacerbated by aggressive and sophisticated marketing designed to distract patients and providers from lower-cost alternatives along with rampant inappropriate and off-label use. Hospitals also frequently lack timely and systematic utilization review and management after drugs have been added to their formulary.
Uncovering inappropriate utilization and prioritizing opportunities requires insight into your health system’s purchases and usage.
