    New functionality that we have introduced into Epi+ recently is the ability to split your total patients into new, switched from another treatment, stable on their current treatment or who have dropped out of treatment (either drop outs or switch outs). Having the ability to split these patients gives you the ability to easily explore these outputs as part of your forecast.

     

    So – how is this done?

     

    There are two approaches within Epi+ to creating these patient opportunity groups. These can be found in to the ‘patient dynamic’ module within your Epi+ toolbar:

    Dynamic segment input – this is a top down approach where you start by identifying the split of new, switch, drop off and stable patients at the market level and then input the individual product level %’s for new and switch only (stable and discontinuations will calculate automatically) to these market volumes.

    2.      Persistency driven – this is a bottom up approach where, starting with the persistency rates for each product, the addin calculates your patient starts at each time period. The only input required is that of the % of patient starts that are new patients – the addin will then calculate the switch in, stable and discontinuations automatically. Click here to see an example of a model that uses this approach.

     

    Which of these approaches to use are a matter of personal preference (or by the data you possess) but this powerful tool does allow you to split your patients with relative ease
