Research Project Objectives Methodology
Best Practices, LLC, conducted a customized
study with responses segmented by medical,
commercial and HEOR functions - to better
understand the growing influence of Big Data in
the biopharmaceutical sector and how it impacts
medical, HEOR, and commercial operations in the
  • Produce reliable industry metrics on current and
    future trends for Big Data utilization across
    medical, commercial and HEOR groups.

Research Goal
Topics Covered

    Medical, Commercial and HEOR Decisions
  • Big Data Capabilities and Governance
  • Types and Value of Data Used for Big Data
  • Big Data Staffing and Budget Levels
  • Value Rating of Partnerships on Big Data Projects
  • Policies and Procedures Governing Big Data
  • Investigate data types, data partnerships, and
    staffing/budget levels companies are using as
    they move to a more analytically based approach
    to commercial, HEOR medical decisions.

Research Overview
  • Best Practices, LLC engaged 12 leaders from 12
    pharmaceutical companies through a benchmarking
  • Research analysts also conducted seven deep-dive
    executive interviews with selected benchmark

Quantitative Findings
  • Across the commercial segment, the following key
    Big Data findings were observed in this study

Only 5 of 36 types of Transactional, Reported,
Online, Scientific and Machine-Generated data
were rated highly valuable by a majority of study
participants. They were Claims EHR (Electronic
Health Records) Health Outcomes (provider/payer
reported) Real World Studies and Registries. No
types of Online or Machine-Generated data were
rated highly valuable by a majority of any
segment. Forty percent of the study participants
said they have a centralized/dedicated Big Data
group. Between 30-40 of participants said
they expect their data capabilities to increase
over the next two years.
Only 5 of 36 Types of Data Rated as Highly
Most Have Centralized or Dedicated Big Data Team
or Function
Small Percent of Participants Expect Data
Capabilities to Increase
Transactional Data Commercial Rates Claims, EMR
Most Valuable
  • While a majority of commercial participants rated
    claims and Electronic Medical Records (EMR) as
    the most valuable types of transactional data for
    Big Data studies, 50 also cited point of sale
    as highly impactful or valuable.

Q How impactful (or valuable) has each of the
following types of transactional data sources
proven to be?
Commercial Leaders May Face Barriers to
Centralized Data
  • Commercial leaders were least likely to describe
    their analytics as centralized or dedicated. This
    data point may be driven by discomfort with
    analysts who address both marketing and clinical
    questions, something a centralized analytics
    function might try to do.

Q Do you have a centralized/ dedicated group of
individuals to support Big Data projects?
Commercial Sees Highest Uncertainty On Dedicated
  • Commercial leaders were most likely to not know
    the future structure of their analytics efforts,
    as well as least likely to have
    centralized/dedicated personnel already in place.
    This may be driven by heretofore strict
    separation of clinical and marketing functions.

Q When do you expect your organization will
establish a Big Data team?
Capabilities Outstrip Governance for Commercial
  • Commercial leaders reported marginally more often
    that there were Big Data capabilities in Asia
    than other functions. The gap between those with
    capabilities and those with governance is most
    pronounced among commercial leaders.

Q Please indicate the regions below where your
organization has Big Data capabilities, and where
Big Data governance resides.
