IDN pharmacies and pharmaceutical manufacturers handle massive amounts of data, including information about scripts, prescribers, insurance companies and patients. Navigating that data, and figuring out how to use it most efficiently, is challenging. Patient outcomes and improved efficiencies of pharmacy operations certainly prove that figuring out data aggregation and data analytics are worth the challenge.
We’ll begin this session with a presentation of a strategic overview of the challenges IDN pharmacy face as you drive better outcomes with increased aggregation and analytics. Next, we’ll discuss how to aggregate infusion pump data in conjunction with data from other technologies like the EHR and dispensing cabinets, to identify drug waste based on how drugs are being ordered, prepared and dispensed versus how they are actually being administered to the patient.
1) Assemble patient data in meaningful and manageable ways to improve patient outcomes.
2) Demonstrate how manipulating data from multiple sources can improve efficiencies in IDN pharmacy operations.
3) Translate data from multiple sources to positively impact drug shortage situations.
