These factors affect the hospital, community, and clinic settings to different extents. Key influences including drug development, comparative effectiveness research, and the economic climate all play important roles.
Doloresco will focus on the effects that these influences have had on pharmaceutical expenditures in the recent past and how they may affect present and future expenditures. Trends in total healthcare expenditures will also be discussed, as will comparisons of several forecasts of national pharmaceuticals.
