Pharmacy OneSource, software-as-a-service provider of the Sentri7 real-time patient surveillance system, is pleased to announce a complimentary webinar presented by Doug DeJong, Senior Director of Pharmacy for Saint Luke’s Health System, on the impact of clinical pharmacy on health systems in "Beyond the Drug Budget: Documenting Pharmacy’s Impact on Overall Health-System Costs."
The impact pharmacists have in improving clinical outcomes and reducing drug expenses has been well-documented and well-accepted. However, the greatest impact of many pharmacy initiatives is seen in areas outside the actual pharmacy budget. Through a series of case studies, the ability of strong clinical pharmacy programs to impact the overall budget of health systems will be examined.
