Facing increasing margin pressures—and having already implemented many proven cost reduction and revenue-increasing measures—hospitals and health systems have to find new ways of reducing their costs without compromising quality or patient safety.
By drawing on the expertise of their pharmacy team and the power of clinical surveillance solutions that enhance and extend the power of electronic health records and other hospital technologies, hospitals and health systems can realize significant cost savings. Forward-looking organizations have already documented savings that, depending on the size of the organization, can amount to millions—even tens of millions of dollars annually.
In this new white paper, we explore how pharmacist patient-care oversight across a single site or system can help hospitals assure the right drug is prescribed, to the right patient, at the right time to optimize medication usage and overall spending, while reducing variations in care. Targeted, strategic efforts that leverage the skill sets of pharmacy teams and surveillance technology can maximize those clinical efficiencies critical to continuously improve the health of patients, outcomes and your hospitals’ bottom line.
