John Giannouris, vice president, Specialty Pharmacy Services, ValueCentric, speaks about data analytics and specialty pharmacy.
Giannouris: Through the data standards being in place, then you actually derive or create standard analytics. So, if you have a standard data set to use and it’s broadly understood, then the analytics that can be derived and generated from that standard data set sort of becomes a standard as well.
That’s one way. It’s certainly not the only way. Different manufacturers have different data needs and a standard is not going to cover all of their needs.
