Customers of the Performance Center have realized significant savings, on average two to three percent of annual drug spend, through existing capabilities designed to drive inefficiency and waste out of the medication supply chain. Continuing on that mission to improve business and patient outcomes, new capabilities will be available through the Performance Center in 2019.
More than 90% of hospital administrators report that increased drug prices are severely impacting their budgets. As inpatient drug spend continues to outpace payer reimbursement, health systems need to have better insight to the impact of medication usage on the total cost of care.2 Clinical Insights ties medication use with patient outcomes, giving pharmacy leaders the confidence to optimize medication therapy while managing cost.
Customers will have the ability to evaluate medication efficacy in specific patient populations, monitor and track trends among prescribers of "high risk" and "high cost" medication, and leverage comparative analysis within a health system or across Performance Center's customer base.

Customers are also provided dashboards for monitoring diversion prevention program successes.
