"The retail pharmacy industry, healthcare commerce, and hospitals have long trusted Facts & Comparisons to connect professionals to vital drug information and medication safety data. But now, we’ve made it even easier for them to access it,” said Denise Basow, MD, President & CEO of Clinical Effectiveness at Wolters Kluwer. “The new interface is so clean and intuitive, professionals will be impressed with how efficiently they find the information they seek, and that will pay dividends in time saved, care enhanced, claims processed, and patients protected."
