Based on the results from the NDTI
, we purchased monthly, county-level prescriptions-filled data for 1999-2003 for the aforementioned drugs classes contained in IMS Health's Xponent[TM] database.
In other words, the NRF is conceived to become a vehicle for the NDTI
, nee DCI.
NDTI data thus provide information that permits us to compare the drugs prescribed for use by the elderly with those prescribed for younger patients, including differences involving brands versus generics.
First, assuming for the moment that, within each of the therapeutic classes, old and young face the same prices (an assumption we relax in the next section), we multiply the BLS therapeutic class quantity weights by the relative old-versus-young proportions of 1996 new prescriptions, based on NDTI data.
25) The elderly-nonelderly split for each drug is based on the average of the 1992, 1994, and 1996 NDTI values.
In connection with the formation of NDTI
, Gail Lalk has been appointed Acting President.
