The $528 Billion Opportunity
April 30, 2019 | 1:00 - 2:00 pm EST
Employers, health plans and consumers have made the rising cost of medications a priority. But when medications aren’t appropriate, effective and safe, the human and dollar costs mount even higher. Research published in 2018 demonstrates the morbidity and mortality related to non-optimized medication use totals $528 billion a year. In this webinar, join two of that study's co-authors to explore the direct costs adding up to a $528 billion opportunity to reduce overall costs of care and why the authors believe comprehensive medication management integration offers a viable, cost-effective, scalable solution.

Comprehensive medication management (CMM) is recommended as a solution to the problem of non-optimized medication use. This systematic approach to medications is a means to significantly improve clinical outcomes and reduce overall health care costs for high-risk patients. This webinar will delve into the need for CMM and implications for pharmacy education and training, as well as how CMM is integrated into team-based care models.
