Why this? Why now?
The goal of the GTMRx Institute is to ensure appropriate and personalized use of medication and gene therapies by advancing to a scientific, evidence-based and cost-effective decision-making process and a team-based, systematic approach to medication use. We believe this will offer consumers a personalized approach to medication use. For those who pay for care, it will create a reduction in total cost of care—saving lives and saving money.
Critical to this goal is our work sponsoring and supporting multi-stakeholder activities that will encourage practice transformation, create pathways for dissemination of evidence and innovation and encourage payment and policy reform.
At our February summit we will discuss how we can harness and scale what we know works from the decades of work happening across health care to integrate medication experts into the care team and to facilitate “whole-person” medication use. We’ll examine what we can do to fix the trial-and-error approach to medication use that’s costing 275,000 people their lives and $528 billion in waste that we all pay for.
