Pharmaceutical care is a rapidly changing field and the data needs of organisations within the healthcare field are changing along with it. If you would like to deepen or update your understanding of the Dutch pharmaceutical market, Farminform has more than fifty years of experience and will be delighted to be your partner providing user information about the human pharmaceutical market, at both the national and regional levels. To that end, we have reliable datasets available on approximately 20,000 medicinal products. We can provide accurate and up-to-date information thanks to our cooperation with virtually all manufacturers, distributors and importers of medicines in the Netherlands. The coverage provided by our data is close to 100%. In addition to standard reports (fiROM) and customised reports (fiSERVICES), Farminform can also assist in implementing the usage information. We have advisers who understand the content and technical experts who are available to help you find a suitable solution for your data requirements. 

Farminform provides monthly information for its participants about national and regional developments in the Dutch pharmaceutical market. This lets participants gain an understanding of the position of expensive inpatient medicines. They also acquire insights into the outpatient and inpatient medicine market as a whole. Moreover, Farminform has historical data at its disposal, allowing retrospective analyses. If desired, Farminform’s specialists can use this historical data to make predictions about the Dutch pharmaceutical market as a whole or about a specific therapeutic area. They use state-of-the-art data analysis techniques for this.

Farminform’s services go further than that, though: together with our partners, we can interpret prescribers’ activities at the national level, analyse usage information and thereby identify trends and changes. Our services can improve the understanding of aspects such as patient classification, co-medication, therapy compliance and costs within healthcare.

We would be pleased if you contact us so that we can discuss your data needs together. Our consultants and technical experts are ready to support you in finding a suitable solution for your data needs.

Care data

Farminform contributes to the continuous improvement of healthcare and pharmaceutical policy. We do this by creating insight into data and facts, realising cooperation between care parties and the reliable exchange of information with independent data assurance.
By bringing information together, independently through data, clinical questions of healthcare professionals, patient, government and industry can be answered. This is of great importance because:

  • insight into integrated care data, combined with drug use data, contributes to appropriate drug use.
  • insight is increased on topics such as patient typing, co-medication, adherence, expensive or add-on drugs, outcomes/effects per treatment and benchmarks between one’s own discipline/hospital and the aggregated data of others hospitals.

To gather the insights, Farminform invests in strategic collaborations with healthcare partners and industry players. We believe that with good partnerships and cooperation, you achieve more. Farminform would like to be the reliable partner for making (pharmaceutical) healthcare data available. We therefore invite you to contact us to jointly discuss your data needs.

TTP (Trusted Third Party)

In electronic transactions or messaging between two parties, a TTP acts as an independent third party and thus facilitates secure data exchange between parties.

The TTP guarantees the security, pseudonymisation and privacy of (patient) data.

  • Farminform can assume a TTP function in data exchange between healthcare providers and the pharmaceutical industry/column (e.g. in research into the development of new, or improvement of existing medication).
  • Farminform can act as the independent intermediary between the healthcare institution, the government, and the business community to organize and facilitate the exchange of data needs.
