Key Thoughts on Controlling Pharmacy Spend for Hospitals


Tuesday, February 26th, 2019 | 1:00pm - 2:00pm CST

Hear what strategies and initiatives executives and senior leaders from University of Missouri Health Care, UChicago Medicine, Adventist Health, HonorHealth, Baylor Scott & White Health, and LRMC are implementing to help control pharmacy spend in this webinar with Becker's Hospital Review.
