Wolters Kluwer Health Introduces Formulary Facts(TM), a Formulary Analytics Tool that Sets the Standard for Accuracy and Ease-of-Use

Uses Real-Time Claims Data from Source(R) Dynamic Claims(TM) to Streamline

Assessment of Drug Performance in Managed Care

BRIDGEWATER, N.J., June 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Wolters Kluwer Health, a division of Wolters Kluwer, today introduced Formulary Facts(TM), an automated, web-based analytics tool designed to help pharmaceutical companies better manage their products in the highly competitive world of managed care.

Real-time data capture also allows pharmaceutical companies to detect when managed care organizations, such as HMO's or PBM's, change the formulary status for their respective products or competitive products, even in cases where they were not notified of a change.

"Pharmaceutical companies can use Formulary Facts to assess the true positions of their products on plan formularies and then use the analysis to react to market opportunities or challenges in real time," said Bob Jansen, Vice President of Managed Markets and Brand Analytics, Wolters Kluwer Health.
