Specialty drugs represent more than 50% of total drug cost and are responsible for most of the increase in healthcare spend. Payors are seeking solutions to help them ensure the dollars spent on specialty care are used effectively. Health systems are uniquely positioned to provide superior outcomes with their integrated care delivery model when patients have access to the specialty drugs they need.
Loopback’s Payor Access Services connects payors with health system providers by leveraging insights from clinical data across its client base of more than 40 health systems. Loopback’s sophisticated analytics, with natural language processing and machine learning, creates actionable opportunities for providers and payors to reduce total cost of care and improve patient outcomes.
