Improve patient matching and data quality, medication adherence, all while protecting patient privacy


There are many steps on the patient journey, and it often includes a stop at the pharmacy to pick up important medications. We know the data you have to work with can sometimes be inaccurate or incomplete, standing in the way of the ultimate goal, closing gaps in care and improving patient outcomes. At Experian Health, we help pharmacies see the whole patient with our comprehensive data solutions and enhance the overall healthcare consumer digital experience.

By layering in social determinants of health (SDOH), or non-medical factors, such as lack of transportation, we can magnify challenges that could be hindering their medication adherence. Additionally, our best-in-class authentication solutions secure prescription portals so you can protect your patient data and meet compliance standards, while offering convenient access and remaining competitive. 

We take our responsibility to the industry very seriously. We've collaborated with the National Council for Prescription Drug Programs (NCPDP) to offer The Universal Patient Identifier (UPI), powered by Experian Health UIM and NCPDP Standards™. With a single, trusted patient record identified you can focus on offering the best care possible. 

The Universal Patient Identifier (UPI), powered by Experian Health UIM and NCPDP Standards™

In partnership with the National Council for Prescription Drug Programs (NCPDP) we have established The Universal Patient Identifier (UPI), powered by Experian Health UIM and NCPDP Standards™ across the entire United States health network. This vendor-neutral, cost-effective solution enables healthcare information exchange to improve interoperability and patient safety. 

  • See improved Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs (PDMP) when patients are matched with the UPI instead of probabilistic or manual processes
  • Eliminate duplicate patient records and enable patient identity management across health entities
  • Gain a comprehensive view of patients with trusted health, credit, and consumer data sources
  • Confidently fill electronic prescriptions

Improving medication adherence with social determinants of health (SDOH)

Did you know that an estimated 50% of patients don't take their medications as prescribed? Or that medical non-adherence costs the healthcare system between $100-$289 billion dollars each year? One way to tackle this growing problem is by understanding your patient's non-medical barriers to health, or social determinants of health. These barriers can include lack of access to transportation to actually pick up medications. If you had this information you could help with automatic refill programs or home delivery to ease the burden and keep them on track, avoiding costly readmissions and gaps in care.
