Do you utilise homecare to deliver your products to your patients? Find out how CSL can help track usage, improve persistence and prevent wastage.
As a pharma company, you want patients to get the most from your medicines. Knowing that those patients are being prescribed the right drugs, taking the right dose at the right time, and persevering with their treatment is an important part of the homecare picture.
When patients fail to adhere to homecare drug regimens the health risks are clear. In addition, the financial impact on NHS resources can be huge, with negative knock-on effects for pharma too.
Keeping patients on the correct treatment for longer is good for the patient, the NHS and your pharma business.
At CSL, we can analyse homecare companies’ data surrounding compliance and adherence, uncovering insights that will drive significant benefits to the pharma industry, healthcare providers and patients. A true win-win situation.
Our work can help identify key months where the risk of stopping treatment are higher. Healthcare providers can then introduce support programs to help patients through these tough periods, which may be triggered by side effects, or a perceived lack of efficacy.
The graph below offers an example of the kind of insights that analysis can bring. It shows a clear dip in adherence in month 12 – data that we were able to provide to the client using our experience and data warehousing skills.
This may look like a simple graph to produce. But getting to this point is far from straightforward. We used data from several homecare companies, each using different data formats, descriptions for the same hospitals, and different definitions around the underlying meaning of the data. As a result the information cannot be simply aggregated – work needs to be done to clean it and make it homogeneous. Using our experience and data warehousing skills, we take the hassle away and ensure you get the maximum benefit and insights from your data.
Using analysis, pharma companies have the opportunity to:
With accurate information at your fingertips, it’s possible to address the pressing problem of drugs wastage – an issue that tarnishes the pharmaceuticals industry and puts financial pressure on the NHS.
