How data drives improvements in clinical care and costs

The use of data and analytics is helping to define the future of pharmacy care services. Drawing on vast and deep data sets, OptumRx is using cutting-edge analytics to better understand the most challenging problems in health care.

Pharmacy accounts for about 20% of all health care costs, but has a significant impact on the other 80% of spend. By making pharmacy care smarter and easier, we help make everyone healthier.


  • Using a 360-degree view of each member, our clinical rules engine determines the next best action to improve total cost and care outcomes.


  • Synchronizing touch points makes it easier for members to navigate the health system.
  • Empowering physicians with member-level clinical and cost information, which guides better decisions and gives members the best value from the start.


  • Delivering healthier outcomes — both financially and clinically.
