Optimizing the Use of Health Outcomes Data in the Marketplace

CHAPEL HILL, N.C., Sept. 21, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Pharmaceutical and biotechnology organizations use health outcomes data to support a variety of product-related initiatives, from treatment guidelines to formulary decisions. With health outcomes data playing such a pivotal role in a product's performance, it's important for organizations to optimize the use of Health Outcomes data.

To help organizations understand current approaches to effectively using health outcomes data in the marketplace, Best Practices, LLC has published a study that examines the internal and external uses of Health Outcomes data for promotional and strategic purposes.

The study, Best Practices in Utilizing Health Outcomes Data, provides comparative data from 2009 and 2011 that illustrate shifting attitudes for how organizations utilize health outcomes data.

Organizations in 2011 used health outcomes data internally mostly for determining market access and scientific publication strategies. Relative to 2009, the importance of using health outcomes data internally for reimbursement decisions increased 24 percent, from 45 percent in 2009 to 69 percent in 2011, according to the study. Meanwhile, in 2011 and 2009, reimbursement and drug formulary decisions were the main use of health outcomes data for interactions with managed care, according to the study.

The 51-page study reflects current approaches to health outcomes data utilization at 16 biopharma organizations; the 2009 data is based on a benchmark class of 29 companies.

The insights in this new study will help pharmaceutical and biotech organizations compare their use of health outcomes data in promotional and internal settings with that of leading organizations. The study also examines the pressing regulatory issues raised by the different uses of health outcomes data.

Key topics covered in this research include:

  • Structure and Reporting Lines of Authority
  • Use of Health Outcomes Data Proactively and Retrospectively
  • How Health Outcomes Data is Utilized within Different Groups
  • Health Outcomes Review Process and Structure
  • Best Practices in Health Outcomes Utilization
