Prime Therapeutics Introduces Efficiency Program to Help Employers Understand How to Most Effectively Spend Pharmacy Dollars
Date:2/26/2008

ST. PAUL, Minn., Feb. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Prime Therapeutics (Prime), a thought leader in pharmacy benefit management, announced today the release of its Efficiency Program. The Efficiency Program provides a targeted approach to value-based pharmacy management and helps employers understand how to spend their limited health care dollars in ways that are most beneficial to the health of their employees. Prime will be presenting this new program at the Pharmacy Benefit Management Institute (PBMI) 2008 Drug Benefit Conference on February 28, 2008.

Prime's Efficiency Program was developed as a tool to help plan sponsors control health care costs while improving the health of their members. The program focuses on core therapeutic categories where evidence-based medicine demonstrates a proven positive health outcome. For each core therapeutic category, Prime uses predictive modeling logic and medical claims information to identify members at high risk for an adverse health event within a population. Pharmacy claims are then used to determine which members have been prescribed a drug therapy and which members have not. Prime's Efficiency Program combines both pieces of information to provide a metric that plan sponsors can use to gauge how efficiently they are spending their pharmacy benefit dollars.

Patrick Gleason, PharmD, Prime's Director of Clinical Outcome Assessment, indicates, "This approach focuses on overall health care including both medical and pharmacy care. This program will help plan sponsors answer the question: are we spending our pharmacy dollars effectively and where do we need to make improvements?"

Gleason will be presenting the Efficiency Program and will provide tangible examples of the value of integrating medical and pharmacy claims to improve pharmacy benefit performance at the 2008 PBMI Drug Benefit Conference in Phoenix, Arizona, on February 28, 2008.
