Presenter:  Jim Jorgenson

We often hear the old maxims “Do More With Less” and “Work Smarter, Not Harder” put forth as a prelude to cost reduction efforts but rarely are these ever accompanied by any coherent strategies or tools to accomplish these objectives.  This session will presented several key strategies and tools to help you accomplish these objectives and create a successful pharmacy cost reduction approach without compromising patient safety or quality of care.
 
Learning Objectives:
  1. Define methods of service consolidation that allow systems to do more with less.
  2. Discuss best practices in formulary management and utilization management.
  3. Strategize ways that tools such as risk sharing, outsourcing, and admission/readmission reduction can help your organization lower costs.
