It has been established that payers are reviewing products in many cases 18-24 months in advance of FDA approval to meet budget and formulary approval timelines. How has this trend for earlier product information affected health care decision makers involved in the hospital P&T process? This webinar will provide insights from registered payer and hospital users of the AMCP eDossier regarding the trend of pre-approval product review and compare the perspectives of both types of decision makers.

Specifically, this webinar will review:
