IDN Impact

IDN Impact on Healthcare Delivery

Integrated Delivery Networks (IDNs) and Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs) are changing the way healthcare is delivered and the way clinical decisions are made. As a result, life sciences companies need to understand them in order to engage with them effectively.

Assess and Target the Right IDNs

IMS Health offers a three-pronged approach for assessing and targeting IDNs that drives immediate business impact:

  • Go local. Measure IDN control exerted on affiliated providers locally and the impact on treatment preference and brand utilization
  • Get specific. Go beyond an IDN’s basic characteristics to capture and quantify influence and impact
  • Embrace big data. Assess each local geography, its IDNs/care facilities, its payers/health plans, its drug classes/brands with local controls
