July 2017 Drug Price Forecast Webinar for CFOs

Join us on Aug. 22 for the Vizient™ July 2017 Drug Price Forecast webinar planned especially for chief financial officers and other financial executives.

The semi-annual Forecast is developed using our industry-leading analytic software and the extensive industry knowledge of our pharmacy team subject matter experts and provides projections of drug price behavior for purchase categories that make up the majority of total pharmacy spend. This CFO webinar reviews how the Forecast can help you manage pricing pressure and ensure that your health system is well positioned to deal with current and future drug price increases. We will:

  • Discuss the factors that contribute to increasing drug costs and the how they affect pharmacy expenditures
  • Describe anticipated trends in drug costs and how to evaluate pharmaceuticals with regard to cost, reimbursement and overall value
  • Identify essential strategies for managing higher drug expenses while improving patient outcome
