The Changing Future of Drug Formularies
December 01, 1997
Peter Penna, Pharm. D. spoke on the future of drug formularies and how he sees them changing. Formularies in managed care evolved out of formularies in hospitals and have been around since drugs became relatively commonly used in patient settings, Penna explained. "Today, formularies are widely used by hospitals, managed care organizations, pharmacy benefit management companies, home health agencies and nursing home services."
