Healthcare Analytics:

How to gain efficiency and effectiveness for a
high-quality healthcare system

Current austere policies demand urgent measures to be taken in order to act on the main causes of the pharma expense thus slowing down its growth. Hospital-Pharmacy Services need to analyze the hospital-pharma prescription by combining the cost-effectiveness relationship and the efficiency criteria, to smartly reduce expenses without effecting the quality of the healthcare system.


Integrating large data sets from miscellaneous origins.

  • Identify facts that can be used for negotiating with suppliers and obtain discounts in purchase prices
  • Detection and in-depth analysis of deciding facts within the pharma. Defining and automating cost-effectiveness drug indicators

The Challenge: Reducing costs in Hospital-Pharmacy Services

  • Obtaining discounts in purchase prices
  • Detecting leading causes of hospital-pharma expense
  • Better cost-effectiveness relationship of drugs

The Solution

Integrating data from multiple origins: healthcare activity, drug prescription and administration, purchases, warehouses, professional data bases,...

  • Cross and un-predefined analysis of huge volumes of data , with instant response:
    . Simultaneous use of drugs (active principles)
    . Profile of patients with bigger medicine consumption
    . Use of active principles per clinical unit
    . Pharma expense per units, pathologies, patients, etc.
    . Adhesion of external patients
  • Identification and in-depth analysis of facts that could be used for negotiating with suppliers to obtain discounts in purchase prices
  • Analyzing the effectiveness of principle actives in various treatments and of the same principle active in different pathologies
  • Defining and automating cost-effectiveness drug indicators depending on the detected effects within a hospital

The Benefits

  • Sustainable cost-effectiveness relationship
  • identify measures that work on main causes of the pharma expense to slow down its growth
  • Smart cost reduction
  • More efficiency in making use of the existing resources
  • Self-sufficiency of the health professionals to access the data and analyze the information, in order to improve and update their knowledge
  • Agility in all daily analysis
