A New Prescription for Best Care Everywhere

Healthcare delivery in the United States is rapidly decentralizing, and high-impact medication prescribing decisions are now handed off across different providers, organizations, and systems. A consumer’s presumption of right drug, right person, right time, and right dose is now a highly distributed, often loosely managed, effort.

Expert panel webinar

As responsibility for a prescribed therapy or therapies is increasingly shared, and consumers’ voices become louder, healthcare providers, health plans, retail pharmacies, and policymakers are rapidly rethinking the entire concept of pharmacy. And top of mind are safety and cost, especially as medicine – and medications – become highly personalized.

Listen to a panel conversation of medical, retail pharmacy, and pharmacogenomics experts - moderated by Wolters Kluwer pharmacogenomics expert Daniel Streetman - unpack the massive shift in healthcare delivery to predict the future of pharmacy. Hear the panelists predict the future of prescribing, and debate surprising new data from a US consumer healthcare survey that foreshadows significant changes in who is entrusted to prescribe medicines as well as the trade-offs consumers will accept to lower drug costs.
