  • Patent number: 8832020
    Abstract: A computer system architecture and process transforms the organizing principles of business data management seen in traditional or common place settings across disparate data stores into an object-semantic model. The transformation is implemented in a transitory, managed risk implementation approach for data access migration. This approach will enable data agility and will move data storage closer to information storage, while supporting the rapid development of business capabilities. This approach will bridge the gaps between relational database/file based storage (less expressive) and object-semantic representation (more expressive). This process/method will connect information residing in legacy data structures such as relational database/file based storage on disk drives to instances populating an expressive object-semantic model in persistent grid based memory.

  • Patent number: 8521551
    Abstract: Systems and methods for analyzing spend and/or trend for a prescription drug plan may be provided. In response to receiving a request to analyze spend and/or trend, a prescription drug spend and/or trend application may retrieve data related to the prescription drug plan from a database. The data may include drug claims data related to the prescription drug plan. The results of the analysis may be provided to a user computing device for display. In connection with the spend and/or trend analysis, a profile may be created for a prescription drug plan using data from at least one data source. The creation of a profile for a prescription drug plan may include the selection of a performance metric for a parameter of the prescription drug plan. If the performance metric deviates from plan data, a performance alert may be provided to the user computing device indicating this deviation.

  • Patent number: 8494877
    Abstract: Systems and methods for determining options for reducing spend and/or trend for a prescription drug plan are provided. Based on an analysis of spend and/or trend for the prescription drug plan, a prescription drug spend and/or trend application may determine that an option is available to reduce spend and/or trend. For example, an option may be provided that addresses a primary component of spend and/or trend as determined by the spend and trend application. In another example, an option may be provided that addresses a deviation by the prescription drug plan from a selected performance metric. In yet another example, an option may be provided that addresses a status change for a drug in a marketplace. The spend and/or trend application may optionally project an impact of an option on the prescription drug plan (e.g., financial impact, member impact) using a related model.

  • Publication number: 20120303382
    Abstract: Systems and methods for simulating a change to a prescription drug plan may be provided. In response to receiving a request to simulate the change to the prescription drug plan, a prescription drug spend and/or trend application may retrieve data related to the prescription drug plan from a database. A model that includes a plurality of calculations to simulate the change may be applied to the retrieved data A user computing device may be provided with an indication of an impact on the prescription drug plan responsive to the at least one change based at least in part on the application of the model to the retrieved data. The modeling of the change may be related, for example, to an option to reduce spend and/or trend as determined by the spend and/or trend application.

  • Patent number: 8112287
    Abstract: Systems and methods for determining an impact on spend and/or trend for a prescription drug plan are provided. In response to receiving the request to analyze spend and/or trend, a prescription drug spend and/or trend application may retrieve data related to the prescription drug plan from a database. The analysis of spend and/or trend includes a determination of components of spend and/or trend having a significant impact on spend and/or trend. In one example, the spend and/or trend application may determine whether an option is available to improve at least one of the components having the significant impact on spend and/or trend. If an option is available, the impact (e.g., financial impact, member impact) of the implementation of the option on the prescription drug plan may be modeled by the spend and/or trend application.
