PHARMACY DATA ANALYTICS

P3Insights Pharmacy Data Analytics, powered by the Johns Hopkins ACG System Rx-MGs provides a medication-based approach for describing the morbidity profile of an individual or population. Rx-MGs also form the basis of P3Insights pharmacy based predictive models.

Used in combination with the patient's Clinical markers, P3Insights' ACG Pharmacy markers produce a unique, more powerful and more accurate picture of the patient's overall profile.

USING PHARMACY DATA

For a handful of carefully selected chronic conditions where administration of medications is warranted, and where specific medications that should be taken continuously can be identified, P3Insights provides indicators if a patient is receiving treatment and calculates potential gaps in availability of needed medications.

Those gaps can then be closed using the modality that's determined to best suited for that particular need.

CATEGORIZING PHARMACY CODES

P3Insights classifies all pharmacy codes into pharmacy-based morbidity groups (ACG® Rx-MGs) using the following clinical criteria:

  • Morbidity-type: symptom vs. disease

  • Duration of morbidity: chronic vs. time-limited

  • Stability of morbidity: stable vs. unstable

  • Route of administration: oral, inhaled, topical, intramuscular, intravenous

  • Therapeutic goal: curative, palliative, preventive

All pharmacy codes (NDC, ATC or other national codes) can be classified according to these clinical criteria. An active ingredient count is also made available.

COMBINING PHARMACY AND MEDICAL DATA

Get a better understanding of patient need and identify:

  • Patients taking drugs for conditions not in their medical claims history

  • Patients with both medical diagnoses and pharmacy indicators

  • Patients with medical diagnoses and no pharmacy indicators

  • Unusual pharmacy expenses

IDENTIFY GAPS IN NEEDED MEDICATION

For a handful of carefully selected chronic conditions where administration of medications is warranted, and where specific medications that should be taken continuously can be identified, P3Insights provides indicators if a patient is receiving treatment and calculates potential gaps in availability of needed medications.

Those gaps can then be closed using the modality that's determined to best suited for that particular need.

MEDICATION ADHERENCE

Patient adherence with therapy represents a major impediment to assessing clinical performance and contributes substantively to patient care costs and outcomes. The P3Insights RxGaps methodology, developed by Johns Hopkins was developed to capture patients with adherence issues and thereby improve their care management. 

P3Insights employs innovative methods that increase the ability to detect genuine adherence problems by:

  • Careful selection of conditions where chronic administration of medications is warranted,

  • The careful identification of specific medications that should be taken continuously,

  • Capturing prescribing  patterns that introduce potential noise, and

  • By identifying medications that may be validly substituted without introducing gaps in adherence.
