A comprehensive, quantitative understanding of patient progression through all stages of disease management and treatment is critical in both assessing a market opportunity within a therapeutic area and developing a product positioning strategy. DRG’s Patient Journey: EHR and Claims Data Analysis combines analytics with therapy expert insights to illuminate the patients’ path from disease presentation through diagnosis and treatment, highlighting their demographic and clinical features and intersections with key healthcare stakeholders. The patient journey analysis provides a granular roadmap for developers, quantifying key patient segments and identifying intervention points along the disease management continuum to support business decisions spanning opportunity assessment and all drug development stages.
