Optum Claims Data

Integrating and linking deep patient data from multiple real-world sources to help clarify market dynamics and uncover insights.


Understand costs and utilization with tried-and-true data

Analyzing the right data is crucial to understanding your product's performance and the therapeutic area you're competing in.

Optum® Clinformatics® Data Mart (CDM) offers richly detailed longitudinal information needed to perform analyses critical to your organization’s business goals and product development.

Our data warehouse leverages statistically de-identified patient data from multiple sources, with assets spanning member, medical claims, pharmacy claims, lab results, inpatient confinement and provider data, allowing for a more holistic evaluation of health care utilization.

Each patient’s identifier is retained regardless of breaks in coverage, giving you confidence in the unique lives in the asset. And as a 100% closed claims system, CDM contains all claims for a given eligibility period, unlike open claims systems. This gives researchers greater coverage of the patient care experience.

Valuable use-cases

Clinical, medical affairs and commercial teams can employ claims data for a range of applications. Conduct patient journey mapping to get a better grasp on the patient care experience or calculate total and disease-specific cost of care to analyze cost burden.

And since all patients in the data set have both medical and pharmacy enrollment information, you can analyze incidence, treatment, mortality or burden of disease progression knowing that the data provide a bigger picture view of patient care.

Claims data can also help you gain insight into how products are used in the uncontrolled setting of actual practice — and to what success.

Track medication launches, conduct patient market share assessments or review adherence. And post-launch, you can leverage our claims data to help monitor and minimize risk. Conduct studies to determine real-world safety profiles or risk reduction in comparative treatment studies.

With this powerful solution, you'll have the necessary cost and utilization information at your fingertips to address your team’s data and analytical needs.
