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.

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.
