CorVel’s latest article featured in Risk & Insurance explores the ongoing industry struggle of speed versus safety in the context of medication dispensing. The article follows a recent study conducted by the Chicago Tribune that found over 50% of tested pharmacies dispensed drug combinations without warning patients about potential interactions.

As pharmacists are under the pressures of corporate productivity standards to dispense medications quickly and in high volumes, and since patient safety is an industry priority, models that promote medication management, pharmacy accountability and compliance are in high demand. Prospective management, a solid pharmacy benefits manager and alerts that drive pharmacist action are some of the keys to improving patient safety.
