GET THE MEDICATIONS RIGHT: INNOVATIONS IN TEAM-BASED CARE
FACT: Medications are involved in 80% of all treatments -- impacting every aspect of a person's life with nearly 30% of adults in the US taking 5 or more prescriptions. 1
FACT: There are also more than 10,000 medications available on the market. 2
Non-optimized medication use -- prescription drugs that make people sicker, are wrong or are not taken as intended -- is being called out as the single most urgent, pressing opportunity to save lives and money.
The GTMRx Institute and Bipartisan Policy Center are co-hosting an event that will shine a spotlight on the real and immediate opportunity and showcase proven strategies at work today across health care settings.
