“While traditional utility customer service reps are limited to high bill analysis based on raw data like general home energy usage and weather, the AI behind our CARE solution acts as an expert in every home who is constantly analyzing each customer’s energy usage. This is giving rise to the next-generation of CSRs who can quickly resolve a high bill call and turn all calls into an opportunity to delight customers with a rebate, a better rate plan relevant to the customer’s home or an energy-saving product offering from the utility,” said Bidgely CEO Abhay Gupta.

Bidgely’s patented disaggregation technology behind the CARE solution applies machine learning algorithms to utility meter data in order to create an itemized list of energy usage in the home by appliance. This core information serves as the foundation for CARE, which comprises of four modules:

  • Customer Bill Analyzer: AI-powered appliance-level energy disaggregation to arm CSRs with customer usage and comparative models and patterns to solve high bill calls.
  • Action Advisor: Personalized recommendations to increase CSAT; program enrollment; and use of targeted rebates, incentives and rate plans that drive customer retention.
  • Remote Audit: Empower CSRs to conduct a successful remote audit assessment and share results and recommendations with customers.
  • Engagement View: CSRs get the full view of a customer’s web dashboard and sees how customers interacted with email, SMS, paper, web and mobile channels.

The “One and Done” Era for Orphan Drugs: Evaluate Predicts 12% Growth, Driven by New Technologies, but Benefits Go to Big Pharma25.4.2019 07:00:00 CESTPressemelding

Scientific advancements will help propel the orphan drug market to a 12% CAGR to 2024, double the 6% rate expected for non-orphan products. In addition to recent breakthrough cell and gene therapy products like Yescarta and Luxturna, a number of “one and done” treatments for orphan diseases are approaching the market, including Novartis’s Zolgensma and bluebird bio’s Lentiglobin. The explosion of new technologies brings their high price points into greater focus — for example, the $425,000 per eye list price for Spark’s Luxturna is the value-based price agreed on with Spark and payers. In 2018, the mean cost for an orphan drug was 4.5 times that of a non-orphan product. Despite the clear advancements in treatment, however, those calling for reform of the Orphan Drug Act may gain further ammunition. Big pharma continues to entrench their position in the orphan market, as evidenced by Bristol-Myers Squibb’s bid for Celgene, Roche’s pending acquisition of Spark, and Novartis’s $8.7bn paym
