The Living Pharmacy CDM!! Focusing on data accuracy for the future

April 7, 2022

Despite the fact that the pharmacy retains the very significant financial responsibility for drug spend and concentrates on trying to limit this in a number of ways, in comparison, pharmacy spends very little time or effort or has very little involvement in ensuring payment for those very expensive high investment drugs or even in designing and implementing payment strategy. The CDM is at the core of this, but unfortunately, often is bloated, cumbersome, outdated and missing critical elements. Learn how to identify and solve some of those issues now! Additionally, the session provides suggestions and tools for assessing current practice and making needed changes. It’s no longer just about money but about assuring data accuracy!
