Managed Care Pull-Through Initiatives Suffer from Poor Measurement of ROI
Date:8/5/2010

CHAPEL HILL, N.C., Aug. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Increased market share is the most important success indicator for measuring effectiveness of managed care pull-through programs. However, gauging the Return on Investment for pull-through initiatives is a challenge. For 33 percent of companies, insufficient metrics and analysis is a hurdle for increasing pull-through.

Difficulty in identifying appropriate metrics to quantify the program's success results in a pull-through initiative with insufficient analysis and lack of information necessary to make mid-course corrections, according to "Managed Care Pull-Through Excellence: From Formulary Access to Increased Market Share," conducted for a partner of Best Practices, LLC.

"You have to decide at the beginning what 'good' looks like," explains an interviewed associate director. "If you reach that, you've done a great job. If not, you have to reevaluate to see what's not working and make changes."
