Actionable Specialty Patient Access and Patient Experience Analytics

Realize the Value of Substantial Specialty Investments

Pharmaceutical manufacturers are rapidly shifting their product portfolios to innovate specialty therapies with smaller target patient populations, higher therapy price points, significant payer policy restrictions, material patient out-of-pocket costs, and broader patient adherence/persistence challenges.

With each new launch, manufacturers are making massive investments in specialty pharmacy partnerships, patient services, and high touch access reimbursement liaisons to deliver a differentiated quality of patient experience.

In order to deliver a differentiated patient experience, Channel Accounts, Access Specialists, Payer Accounts, and Patient Services teams seek critical insights from disparate data sources. Specialty brands rely on pharmacy networks and hubs to supply patient status, dispensing, and services data.


IntegriChain Specialty Analytics

Specialty Analytics goes beyond lagging trend reports to explain the why behind those trends and derive actionable insights that can immediately and positively impact the patient experience.

Specialty Analytics: Moving Manufacturers Beyond Basic Reporting to Predictive Analytics 

Today’s specialty pharmacy data platforms fulfill the brand’s need for patient status and patient service data aggregation and foundational metric reporting. But specialty brands are struggling to progress from reporting to actionable analytics that are diagnostics and ultimately predictive. The maturation of analytics is being slowed by a combination of critical challenges in the underlying data and the inherent limitations of reporting. 

Specialty Analytics helps specialty brands go beyond basic metric reporting – the what – and achieve true, guided analytics that provide answers – the why.

Specialty Analytics combines patient status diagnostics, data confidence scoring, payer/plan unblinding, and market benchmarking to enrich and transform specialty pharmacy patient-level data. The result is a trusted, more complete set of actionable insights at the disposal of a brand and its supporting teams that can be used to inform channel strategy and fine-tune execution.

Data Confidence Alerting to Assess Validity of Insights

An assessment of 15 brands across 40 specialty pharmacies and multiple therapeutic categories performed by IntegriChain found considerable variance in the reporting of patient level status and sub-status data. Strategic decisions made by a brand’s manufacturer based on incomplete or flawed data are less meaningful and less likely to deliver return on investment (ROI). 

Specialty Analytics deploys an on-demand data confidence indicator to convey the completeness of patient level data being reported by contracted specialty pharmacies to a manufacturer. Get answers to these important questions:

  • Has the specialty pharmacy agreed to report all fields relevant to a given metric, e.g, Time to First Fill?
  • Is the specialty pharmacy actively reporting all fields relevant to a given metric, e.g., Medication Possession Ratio?
  • Are there any outliers present in the data with the potential to skew metrics?

Knowing the state of specialty pharmacy data a manufacturer can properly weigh its conclusions and take steps to improve the data it’s receiving.
