The FICO Medication Adherence Score is a predictive analytics tool developed by the same organization responsible for FICO credit scores. The adherence score forecast an individual’s likelihood of taking his or her prescription medication as directed.

FICO Medication Adherence Score

  1. 1. FICOMEDICATIONADHERENCESCORE
  2. 2. NON-ADHERENCE INAMERICAScale and impact of medication non-adherence in theU.S.
  3. 3. ADHERENCE IS A NATIONALPROBLEM• 20% of patients never fill their first prescription• 24% take less than the recommended dosage• Half of all people discontinue prescriptions in the first six monthsThe situation is even more challenging in some disease states:For example, up to 72% of asthma patients report that they take theircontroller medications less than prescribed. Taking that medicine can reducehospital and emergency visits by 80%. It‟s a huge impact on both patients andpractitioners.
  4. 4. THE RESULT• Nearly 125,000 deaths each year are associated with non-adherence to a medication• Poor medication compliance costs the U.S. healthcare system $290 billion in avoidable medical spending each year.• Non-adherence is 13% of the nation‟s total healthcare expenditure

  6. 6. PREDICTORS OF ADHERENCE Stability Personal Demographics Resources Support Conscientiousness
  7. 7. PREDICTORS OF ADHERENCE Stability: • Job tenure • Transient history Stability Demographics: • Age & Gender • Geography • Hobbies PersonalDemographics Resources Support: • Family structure (spouse, children) Conscientiousness: • “Responsibility” Support Conscientiousness • Ex: People with high discretionary income who have low spending/debt Personal Resources: • Home Value • Car Ownership • Income
  8. 8. UNDERSTANDING THE SCORE• Data-driven predictive model that assesses an individual‟s likelihood of filling future prescriptions• Therapeutic category and brand-specific adherence models (not one universal score)• Entire process and implementation are fully HIPPA compliant - Requires only a consumer‟s name & address - No self-reported information or Protective Patient Information (PPI) used** Medication Adherence Score does not take an individual’s FICO Credit Score intoConsideration due to Fair Credit Reporting Act
  9. 9. UNDERSTANDING THE SCORE • Collect de-identified prescription records for drugs used to treat a specific condition Compile • Third party „predictor‟ data is cross-referenced to create a data set Data • FICO uses data sets to identify the best predictors of medication adherence and non-adherence Analysis • Model is developed using the identified predictors of adherence • Model is validated using patient populations to ensure strength and robustnessDevelopment • Results and top predictive attributes are shared with the respective FICO client • FICO hosts the information in its secure service bureau • Consumer names and addresses are run through model and scored; the scored fileDeployment of consumers is then provided to the client
  10. 10. APPLICATIONSThe FICO Medication Adherence Scoreprovides the opportunity for pharmamarketers to OPTIMIZE their resourceallocation. • Improved message targeting • Develop refined intervention programs • Implement „Test & Learn‟ strategies
