01

The Challenge

Initially, Amgen suffered from a lack of patient regional data and sell-out data from payers. So, the Client approached Altamira with a clear yet ambitious objective: to acquire comprehensive, orchestrated payer data, including patient registries and monthly updates.

Although the Client provided some initial specifications, Altamira played a key role in refining their vision and ensuring that the data platform solution was tailored to meet their precise needs.

The Solution

Altamira’s team addressed the Client’s need and delivered the solution in 3 weeks without any functional or operational issues. StatRix is a custom data solution focused on the analysis and visualisation of patient prescription data reported by healthcare insurance companies.

The main analysis and visualisation functionality of StatRix includes the following:

  • Patient numbers on the product
  • Spread of diagnoses for which the product is being prescribed
  • Patient demography split by diagnoses and treatments
  • Year-to-year change (based on diagnosis/treatment)
  • Coprescriptions
  • Comorbidities
  • Switches

 

Based on Amgen’s feedback, later we have incorporated several functional enhancements:

  • Created and implemented new filters for data preprocessing and transformation
  • Expanded possibilities for data export
  • Incorporated more options for data review, allowing the Amgen to see more trends in their business to make accurate data-driven decisions.

 

StatRix is a custom closed platform that provides detailed patient and sales-out data based on monthly license fees.

This platform proved valuable for the Amgen, as it provided invaluable insights into disease prevalence, drug distribution, and prescription trends that were not readily available from other sources.

The development team, led by our Solution Architect, worked tirelessly to ensure that the data platform not only met but exceeded Amgen’s expectations, facilitating a deeper understanding of the Slovak pharmaceutical landscape.
