James Martinez, a consulting pharmacist who works with surgery centers in Florida, told The Opthalmic ASC how centers can keep drug costs down.
Here are two insights he shared:
1. Use more than one wholesale distributor and consult an expert — navigating drug shortages is easier when ASCs use multiple distributors from different geographic areas.
2. Receiving insight from either a pharmacist or someone experienced in pharmaceutical purchasing is essential for ASCs struggling with high drug prices.
