Feb 28, 2012 — The US’s healthcare system realizes a benefit of $16.70 for each $1 invested in pharmacists who practice in hospitals and other components of health care systems (1).
A 1995 study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine found that CDTM reduced negative therapeutic outcomes by 53-63% and avoided $45.6 billion in direct health care costs. It also showed drug-related morbidity and mortality in the ambulatory setting alone costs the nation $76.6 billion annually (2).
