CASE STUDY: Measuring the Impact of Pharmacy Customer Loyalty on Health System Utilization and Readmission Rates

Do you know how to measure the value that a business unit delivers to its parent health system?

In this case study, we analyze the impact of pharmacy customer loyalty on the Fairview Health Services system. Using individual-level consumer data and predictive modeling, we found that high loyalty to Fairview’s pharmacy division was correlated with lower overall clinic system utilization and improved 30-day inpatient readmission rates.

This case study introduces a new, data-driven methodology for measuring value. And with the Carrot MarketView Healthcare Business Intelligence software platform, you can use this same approach to analyze the service lines and business units in your organization.

The Iceberg Cometh: Welcome to Sickville, USA

Increasingly, the U.S. healthcare system devotes resources, attention and innovation to managing the care of patients with cancer or chronic illness. However, it vastly underestimates the growth of that population and is poor at identifying individuals who will end up needing such services. The Iceberg Cometh, the first of a four-part white paper series co-authored by Carrot Health’s Kurt Waltenbaugh and 4sight Health’s David Johnson, taps powerful consumer and health data analytics to reveal the enormous crisis American healthcare is speeding toward.

The Secret Sauce of Population Health

The “secret sauce” of population health blends access to data with actionable analysis, curates partnerships across sectors, and connects with communities to create options for upstream interventions.

This paper outlines changes in the health landscape, defines the social determinants of health, highlights data and collaboration as a key ingredients to success, and looks to innovative applications that define the first course in improving population health.

From Sick Care to Health Care

We all want to be healthy. Yet, the money we spend primarily goes to taking care of people once they are already sick. At that point, it is too late – it costs too much, and cannot turn back the clock to give someone “health.” Providing value by improving patients’ health – at an efficient price – is the future of our health system. Consumer data holds a predictive key.
