The $528 Billion Opportunity

The $528 Billion Opportunity

Webinar Date: April 30, 2019 1:00 pm

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.

Watanabe, Pharm.D., M.S., Ph.D. BCGP, associate professor of clinical pharmacy, Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, University of California, San Diego.
