Anticoagulants: System-Level Contracting

Institutional Channel Assessment| November 2017

Anticoagulants: System-Level Contracting

Health Strategies Group’s recently released research Therapeutic Category Opportunities in the Institutional Channel synthesizes and summarizes all institutional channel analysis for fourteen major therapeutic categories into an easily digestible and actionable format.

For example, our analysis in the anticoagulant category produced the following key finding: system-wide contracting occurs less frequently for anticoagulants compared to other categories. However, when developing system-level formularies, IDNs include anticoagulants at a much higher rate than other categories.

Anticoagulants: System-Level Contracting

These and other findings can be found in Health Strategies Group’s recently released research Therapeutic Category Opportunities in the Institutional Channel.

Key questions answered in this research:
System-Level Contracting

  • Are system-wide contracts in place for the category?
  • Is the category included in IDN system-level formularies?
  • What types of contracts do IDNs have in place for the category and which are most preferred?
  • Do IDNs contract directly with biopharmaceutical companies for the therapeutic category?

Clinical Drug Protocols

  • Do IDNs implement clinical drug protocols for the therapeutic category?
  • Are clinical drug protocols implemented at the category or product level?
  • How are clinical drug protocols enforced for the therapeutic category?
  • Does the IDN implement physician performance incentives to drive clinical drug protocols for the therapeutic category?

Population Health Management Initiatives

  • Is the therapeutic category a high population health management priority for the IDN?
  • Do IDNs use medical or pharmacy interventions to manage patient populations?
  • How successful are IDNs in managing patient populations?
  • What types of programs do IDNs implement most often to manage patient populations?
