Introduction to NPDUIS Reports

The National Prescription Drug Utilization Information System (NPDUIS) is an integrated system of information designed to support the analysis and interpretation from the results of web reports. The NPDUIS web reports are divided into three groups; two of the groups (Formulary Reports and Claims Reports) utilize Microstrategy© business intelligence software, while the third (Plan Information) consists of contextual information presented in adobe (.pdf) file format. Depending on the level of authorization, a user may or may not have access to all of the web report groups.

"Analytical reporting tools" provide the user flexibility in choosing data elements on which to search and/or return in the results. The remaining "canned" reports are more limited in flexibility; however, they are designed to quickly answer general questions. Data from both reports are exportable to user-selected formats. For more information on using the reports please select Education and Documentation section of this website.

Plan Information Document

The plan information document provides comparative contextual information associated with the administration policies of the federal/provincial/territorial public drug benefit plans/programs.

Relevant references/links to drug benefit plan/program information across the NPDUIS are essential to supporting the interpretation, analysis and reporting of the information derived for the NPDUIS reports.

The plan information document is updated twice a year, and includes a summary of changes between versions. This document is available on both the NPDUIS client services web report site and the NPDUIS public website.
