“With worldwide pharmaceutical sales expected to top more than $1 trillion over the next few years, the number of physicians, care providers or payers, benefits administrators and healthcare leaders involved in the industry continues to skyrocket,” said Randy Vogenberg, Ph.D., R.Ph., Principal with IIH, and a national expert on managed care, commercial health benefits and plan design, health-system delivery & economics, and health innovation research.  “But the healthcare benefits marketplace has a language all its own; and to participate and excel, you need to communicate with the language and terms used by industry leaders.”

The 2018 edition of Glossary of Common Drug Related Terms and Acronyms provides the information needed to communicate effectively and understand the inner workings of this dynamic industry.  The glossary of terms is the first book among other contemporary titles that are in development by AMI.  AMI also has additional reports and insight papers available online.  The glossary represents AMI’s inaugural book entry.
