Data seen as replacing policy as coverage tool for precision medicine

The era of big data might still be in its infancy, but payers are already dealing with a deluge of bits and bytes that threatens to overwhelm their ability to keep up with recent developments in medical science. Clynt Taylor, CEO of Intervention Insights Inc., of Burlington, Mass., told BioWorld MedTech that payers are starting to see the light when it comes to reacting to data that suggest a shift in coverage policy, but that over time, payers will replace those fixed policies with a data-driven approach that adapts to patients' needs in real time.

Taylor said the company opened its doors for business roughly eight years ago, adding, "we started by providing information that helps molecular testing labs provide an enhanced report" that spells out the association between a gene and a disease. The company's vision was expanded in 2017 to aid health care professionals and payers trying to work through the complexities of precision medicine in oncology, with an eye toward making clinicians comfortable using molecular medicine and ensuring payers that they aren't covering something that isn't appropriate for that patient.

Physicians are key to making precision medicine investments pay off

As the practice of tailoring technology-driven treatment plans for each patient takes hold, physicians are being asked to make more specific decisions than ever before.

Finding the best care for a patient can be a constantly moving target. The number of stakeholders, the constant advance of new information and treatment options and the nuanced demands of different payers make for a maze of complexities to navigate. In the field of oncology, for example, nobody but a specialist could be expected to keep up with the growing wealth of knowledge in the treatment of individual cancers.

Yet most patients are treated by general oncologists who may not be abreast of every best course of action for specific conditions. These practices might not know which treatments a patient could be pre-approved for, or which payers are most likely to compensate and for what.

As the practice of tailoring precision medicine plans for each patient takes hold, physicians are being asked to make more specific treatment decisions than ever before.

"You have labs, you have payers, you have providers and you have pharma – and they’re all interested in what the doctor is about to do with a patient," said Clynt Taylor, CEO of Intervention Insights, which makes a tool called Trapelo that helps streamline treatment and payment options.
