Voices of Change
We see it every day; needless lives lost and wasted money from the current trial and error approach to medication use. In fact, 275,000 or more lives are lost and at least $528 billion dollars are wasted yearly due to non-optimized medication use. The good news is there are opportunities to control the loss and waste, whether you are involved in receiving, paying for, or delivering care. Living in a world where patients get the right medications, the first time is attainable – and it doesn’t have to take decades to create this world.
Hosted by the GTMRx Institute’s Executive Director and Co-founder, Katie Capps, Voices of Change will feature leaders who have knowledge, experience and ideas to solve this urgent need to getting the medications right.
Thank you for listening as we discuss optimizing medication use as the single greatest opportunity we have to save lives and money across our health care system. It is a goal that is entirely achievable. Evidence shows that integrating medication experts into their care teams works in getting the medication right – and achieving remarkable clinical, economic and human results.
In our early episodes, we featured voices representing those stakeholders who are at the center of transforming medication use: pharmacists and industry leaders. Now we’ll talk with experts who will give their take on the central issues and opportunities to get the medications right.
