Improving Medication Use...One of the Biggest Opportunities in Health Care
At RxAnte we’re passionate about improving health care, and we believe improving medication use is a critical place to start.
Four out of five physician visits end with a prescription being written. Yet fewer than half of these medications are taken as prescribed, contributing to poorer health and higher costs. In fact, improper use of medication is estimated to cost the health care system $300 billion a year. That’s why the major players in health care are increasingly looking for ways to improve the quality of medication use.
Dozens of studies have shown it’s possible to help people take their medicines effectively. While there’s no single solution that works for everyone, interventions like refill reminders and synchronization, intensive counseling, special packaging and incentives among others do work. But we also know that you get what you pay for, and the interventions that work the best are often the most costly. For organizations responsible for medication use in large populations, it’s cost-prohibitive and totally unnecessary to deliver these kinds of interventions to every individual.
The key to improving medication use at the population level is knowing which patients need extra support and which intervention is the best choice for each individual. We built RxAnte to help organizations improve medication use at the population level—by helping the right patients get the right interventions at the right time.
Born from decades of academic research, and developed by leading experts in the field, the RxAnte Solution is a patent-pending suite of analytics that:
- Measures and targets opportunities to improve outcomes by improving medication use
- Predicts medication adherence at the patient level ex ante (as early as the first filled prescription)
- Prioritizes and targets the most cost-effective intervention(s) available for each patient
- Monitors and evaluates the effectiveness of adherence programs
