Problem Statement

  • Company wanted to analyze the location of treatment of patients for one of its Immunology products. Since the company has to provide greater discounts to certain type of hospitals, if more patients have treatments in hospitals the revenue from the drug decreases.
  • Company asked us to conduct an exploratory analysis to find out if there was a shifting trend and to provide insights on the shift.

  • Performed physician profiling for physicians who practiced in multiple locations.
