Why analyze GLP-1 data?

GLP-1 costs are skyrocketing. 

You have deeper insights, and see the specific drivers.

What parts of your population are growing the fastest? How do social factors influence utilization and outcomes?

With information at your fingertips, HR teams spend more time piloting new ideas for whole health success, partnering for innovation and prevention, and driving impact.

See how three organizations use these insights to contain costs.

It's a changing landscape for GLP-1's

Stay on top of important details that may influence your policies and benefits.


  • See conditions related to GLP-1 scripts.  See co-morbid conditions, understand volumes.
  • Anticipate evolving trends to project costs.
  • As GLP-1’s are approved for new indications, see the condition prevalence in your population.


  • Measure and compare members engaged in point solution programs.
  • Compare cohorts to quantify differences between engaged and non-engaged members on GLP-1’s.


Then what? Pre-Auths, Step Therapy, Point Solutions


Use insights to refine and evolve benefits, policies, pre-authorizations, and coverage terms.

  1. Pre-Authorizations – Ensure increased visibility with pre-approval processes
  2. Step Therapy – Design a program where lower cost options are offered prior to GLP-1 scripts approval.
  3. Point Solutions – Engage a partner that offers a whole health and lifestyle approach as part of GLP-1 coverage.

Reports and Alerts

Get Alerts and regular reports to stay on top of potential fraud, waste and abuse.

See provider prescribing patterns

  • Monitor for excessive prescribing patterns or other signs of costly fraud and abuse.
  • Receive alerts when thresholds are exceeded or new patterns develop.
  • Drill into details to see conditions and other provider or member health considerations.

Understand side effects impacting total health

  • Quantify services and costs associated with known side effects.
  • Compare cohorts to quantify differences in side effects and other factors that increase risk and costs.

Proactively watch trends on new scripts, new conditions, and significant changes

  • Set up Alerts for situations you want to stay on top of.
  • Alerts generate emails and you can dig further into linked reports if you want to.

Member engagement and relevant communications

Health takes more than medication!  Help people find the right lifestyle and wellness programs you’ve designed for them.

Create processes to securely send member-level information to care management or point solution partners for increased engagement. Communications and outreach can be personalized to contain the most relevant and timely information to successfully engage a member.

As part of ongoing improvement, measure how engagement with other care supports outcomes.

  • Lifestyle and wellness programs
  • PCP utilization
  • Ongoing biometric and lab results
