Using Decision Support to Promote Value-Based Prescribing

10:00am - 11:00am Thursday, February 14
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center
W311A

Description

Per capita spending on prescription drugs in the United States is higher than in any other industrialized nation and continues to rise at alarming rates. To curb costs, new payment models are emerging to reward cost reduction in medication spending. This speaker will discuss how NYU Langone Health was able to leverage clinical decision support to reduce medication costs by driving clinicians to lower cost-equivalent medications in the ambulatory setting. Factors that influence success will be discussed as well as barriers to adoption.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Formulate a strategy for deploying decision support to influence medication prescribing
  • Identify what factors contribute to provider acceptance of lower cost-equivalent medications
  • Recognize barriers that may impact provider adoption and limit cost savings
  • Define patient factors and external processes that may limit the utility of clinical decision support to reduce medication spending
  • Evaluate what types of metrics should be used to measure success
