Quick Fact


Our team helps you track outcomes and evaluate the efficacy of your organization’s drug policies.


The pharmacoeconomics group at Clinical Pharmacy Services balances the needs for fiscal responsibility with the desire for positive outcomes for patients.

Our pharmacists use scientific methods to project the cost benefits of pharmacy products — weighing one drug against another or one pharmaceutical therapy against another. We determine which products and treatments are both clinically and economically sound.

With our Pipeline PredictorRx tool, we create pharmacoeconomic comparisons to help you proactively evaluate the potential impact of pipeline medications. This thorough, objective analysis compares the cost and efficacy of pipeline drugs to the existing standard of care. 

Economic evaluation with focus on patient outcomes

One of the few pharmacy benefits managers that also provides pharmacoeconomic services, Clinical Pharmacy Services occupies a unique position within a leading academic health sciences center. We are dedicated to achieving cost savings without sacrificing patient outcomes.
