Summary

Outline—Part B


Methods to investigate medicine use l.jpg

Indicator study methods dose in analyzing the consumption of medicines

Use data collected at the individual level—patient, health facility

Data insufficient to make judgments about appropriateness of a medicine for a specific diagnosis

Aggregate data methods

Use routine data (e.g., stock records) not collected at the individual patient level

Gives overview of medicine use and can highlight problem areas

In-depth investigation of medicine use

Prescription audit, patient record review

Drug use evaluation (DUE) (discussed in session 11)

Qualitative methods to understand causes of a medicine use problem (discussed in session 8)

Methods to Investigate Medicine Use


Aggregate data 1 l.jpg

Medicine use aggregate data sources dose in analyzing the consumption of medicines

Procurement records

Warehouse medicine records

Pharmacy stock and dispensing records

Adverse drug reaction (ADR) and medication error reports

Patient medical records

Aggregate Data (1)


Aggregate data 2 l.jpg

Data that can be retrieved dose in analyzing the consumption of medicines

Medicine consumption

Medicine availability

Medicine cost data

Frequency of use

Per capita use of specific product

Prevalence of ADRs

Prevalence of medication errors

Aggregate Data (2)


Defined daily dose 1 l.jpg

The DDD methodology converts and standardizes readily available product quantity data, such as packages, tablets, injection vials, bottles, into crude estimates of clinical exposure to medicines, such as the number of daily doses

A methodology that allows comparison of consumption of pharmaceutical products across hospitals, regions, and countries

Combines different medicine strengths and doses to provide one unit of consumption for each medicine for comparison of use

Defined Daily Dose (1)


Defined daily dose 2 l.jpg

Defined globally by the WHO Collaborating Center for Drug Statistics Methodology, Oslo, Norway http://www.whocc.no/atcddd/

Typically expressed as follows

DDD per 1,000 inhabitant per day for total medicine consumption

DDD per 100 beds per day (100 bed-days), for hospital use

Defined Daily Dose (2)


Defined daily dose example 1 captopril l.jpg

District hospital and clinics use of captopril with 2,700,000 population

22,500,000 tablets yearly of captopril 25 mg

3,000,000 tablets yearly of captopril 50 mg

Quantity of medicine used in 1 year multiplied by strength of the product

= (22,500,000 × 25 mg) + (3,000,000 × 50 mg) = 712,500,000 mg

Divide total quantity by assigned DDD for that medicine (captopril = 50 mg ) = 712,500,000 / 50 mg = 14,250,000 DDDs

Divide total quantity by 2,700,000 population and multiply by 1,000 (this is the population denominator for this method)

= (14,250,000 / 2,700,000 ) x 1,000 inhabitants

= 5,278 DDD / 1,000 inhabitants / year

5,278 / 365 = 14.5 DDD / 1,000 inhabitants / day

Defined Daily Dose Example 1: Captopril


Defined daily dose example 2 carbamazepine use in south africa 2001 l.jpg

Annual consumption = 100 million x 200 mg tablets 2,700,000 population

= 20,000,000,000 mg = 20,000,000 g

Assigned DDD for carbamazepine = 1 g

No. DDDs consumed = 20,000,000/1

= 20,000,000 per year = 20,000,000/365

= 54,795 per day for population of 48,000,000

= 54,795 / 48,000,000 = 0.0011 per person per day

= 1.1 DDD per 1,000 population per day

Defined Daily Dose Example 2:Carbamazepine Use in South Africa, 2001


Ven analysis l.jpg

Method to prioritize for medicine purchase and stock 2,700,000 population

V–Vital

Potentially lifesaving

Crucial to providing basic health services

E–Essential

Effective against less severe but significant illness, but not vital

N–Nonessential

For minor illnesses

High cost and low therapeutic advantage

VEN Analysis


Conducting a ven analysis l.jpg

Step 1. Classify all medicine on the list as V, E, or N. 2,700,000 population

Step 2. Analyze the “N” items. Where possible, reduce quantities to purchase or eliminate them.

Step 3. Identify and limit therapeutic duplications.

Step 4. Reconsider proposed purchase quantities.

Step 5. Find additional funds if needed or possible.

Conducting a VEN Analysis


Ven applications for dtc l.jpg

Identifies high-priority medicines for procurement 2,700,000 population

Identifies low-priority medicines that the DTC should analyze carefully for deletion from the formulary

Abc analysis a b and c medicines 2 l.jpg

A medicines within the formulary system—High percentage of funds spent on large-volume or high-cost items

Greatest potential for savings

Greatest potential for identifying expensive medicines that are overused

B medicines—Moderate cost and moderate number of items; important items

C medicines—Small amount of funds spent on the majority of the inventory

ABC Analysis: A, B, and C Medicines (2)


Applications of abc analysis for a dtc l.jpg

Measures the degree to which actual consumption reflects public health needs and morbidity

Reduces inventory levels and costs by arranging for more frequent purchase or delivery of smaller quantities of class A items

Seeks major cost reductions by finding lower prices on class A items

Reduces inventory of items that have limited use in the system, but costs the system large amounts of money

Provides information for choosing the most cost-effective alternatives and finding opportunities for therapeutic substitution

Gathers information for pharmacoeconomic analysis

Applications of ABC Analysis for a DTC


Steps in performing abc analysis l.jpg

Step 1. List all items purchased and enter the unit cost. public health needs and morbidity

Step 2. Enter consumption quantities for each item.

Step 3. Calculate the value of consumption for each item.

Step 4. Sort the list in descending order by total value.

Step 5. Calculate the percentage of total value represented by each item.

Step 6. Calculate the cumulative percentage of total value for each item.

Step 7. Choose cutoff points for A, B, and C.
