For Employers

Right medicine. Right patient. Right dosage.

For most employers, the cost of prescription drugs is rising at double digit rates (in 2016, 11.3% for active employees and retirees; 18.7% for specialty drugs).  Frustrated with lack of transparency and unclear business dealings between PBMs and drug manufacturers, employers are demanding cost saving strategies that require a fundamentally different approach to the delivery system and benefit design. They are also defining new rules of engagement and implementing new contractual requirements between those who manage the spend.

Employers need assurance that medication decisions are based on clinical efficacy and safety. We want to better understand how investments in high-value drugs impact clinical outcomes.

The Institute is a vehicle to explore new and innovative payment and value-based contracting arrangements. It’s an opportunity to explore expanding roles and functions within team-based, collaborative, patient-centered care.

Fewer medication errors.

Illness and death resulting from non-optimized medication therapy (wrong drug, skipped dose, drugs that make you sick) cost $528.4 billion annually, equivalent to 16% of total U.S. health care expenditures in 2016. It’s time to reduce errors.
