About the Center for Pharmaceutical Policy and Prescribing

Since 2013, the Center for Pharmaceutical Policy and Prescribing (CP3) has fostered multidisciplinary collaboration to improve the quality, safety, and efficiency of medication use.  The Center’s focus is on informing the regulation and coverage of pharmaceuticals and improving patient and prescriber decision-making on prescription drugs. Prescription drugs are used by 80% of Americans and are essential in the treatment and prevention of acute and chronic conditions.  The improper, unsafe, and inefficient use of medications leads to billions of dollars of avoidable healthcare costs. 

Center faculty conduct research in many areas:

Quality and value of prescribing

Insurance and benefit design

Diffusion of new drugs

Polypharmacy and drug safety

Medication adherence
