Patient Reported Outcomes

The FDA is an agency persuaded by data. And in compounding, the best way to demonstrate the value of the compounded formulations you dispense daily is via patient-reported outcome data that can be aggregated and shared with FDA.

Without that kind of data, your compounding practice is a potential target for hyper-regulation from FDA that will leave your business in tatters and your patients without options.

Big news for APC Pharmacy-Facility Members: You have access to a great compounding-specific patient-reported outcomes tool: OutcomeMD.

It’s an outcome-tracking and marketing platform — an extraordinary strategic tool for the compounding profession and a great business solution for individual pharmacies.


There’s plenty of anecdotal evidence for positive patient outcomes, but not enough of the validated, standardized data FDA wants to see. The OutcomeMD platform will help change that, allowing APC to aggregate patient-reported outcome data while providing compounding pharmacy owners granular data on how their formulations are working for patients.

“The OutcomeMD platform is something long-needed in compounding: A means of collecting and aggregating patient outcomes data in a way that’s not just useful to the pharmacy but useful to the profession,” said APC’s CEO Scott Brunner, CAE.

Via a smartphone app, patients respond to questions about how their specific therapies are working. Owners in turn get data about those formulations using the same validated measures used in clinical trials (and that FDA uses in its database). And, with the owners’ permission, APC gets access to the aggregated metadata — scrubbed of HIPAA-protected details, of course — to share with FDA and demonstrate how patients benefit from compounded therapies.


Using OutcomeMD also provides direct benefits to you and your patients.
