The Customer: A PBM with a Mission  

The Pharmacy Benefit Manager in question provides clinical insights and solutions to help individuals manage their prescriptions effectively. Its mission is to improve health outcomes and reduce medication costs for patients suffering from chronic or complex conditions. However, operating in what is a highly regulated sector entails a unique set of challenges, including strict compliance with Medicare and Medicaid reporting requirements. 

The Challenge: Legacy Reporting System Woes 

One of the primary reporting requirements in the PBM industry is the delivery of summary as well as detailed cross tabular data sliced by filter  values. This enables stakeholders to monitor claims processing at a per-claim level. Unfortunately, our PBM was struggling with a legacy reporting platform that was plagued by issues such as sluggish performance, frequent errors, and an inability to generate print-ready, well-formatted reports with the level of data granularity required to meet industry standards.
