40% of the population suffers from some important chronic disease. These patients account for 85% of pharmacy spending and are 75% of patients admitted in primary care two or more times in the last twelve months.
In the population over 65 years, the prevalence of chronic disease patients is over 75% and the majority of these cases have more than one chronic disease. However, the prevalence will increase in the coming years, as society ages. Identifying the population at risk is essential to undertake proactive measures and more efficient monitoring of patients to improve healthcare quality while reducing costs.
To achieve this, Bismart is collaborating with the research group of the Catalan Institute of Health (ICS). Bismart is enriching the morbidity predictive algorithm developed by ICS, correlating sociodemographic and economic information, with Bismart’s vulnerability predictive algorithm.
