Read Katie’s statement, “Why I Support the GTMRx Institute”
“No single segment of the health care industry can solve this alone. It’s going to take a multi-stakeholder approach. We’re bringing together consumer groups, care delivery, payers and solution providers to create a critical mass so everyone can access a safe, effective, efficient, personalized, systematic approach to medication use. That’s what the goal of the Institute is: A call to action for long-term, sustainable change.
Let’s ramp up the pace. We have the tools, we have the technology, we have the medication experts, we have the evidence. Let’s work together to facilitate practice transformation, create rational payment policies and showcase evidence to get the medications right.”
