pk monitoring: drugs with a narrow therapeutic index

Posted by Neoteryx on Mar 27, 2019 2:58:00 AM

 

Patient monitoring is always an important part of the medical process, but it’s particularly crucial when patients are using drugs with a narrow therapeutic index. Drugs with a narrow therapeutic index are drugs in which the dosage must be exact; otherwise, it could lead to serious negative reactions, failures, or dependency. Regular therapeutic drug monitoring is very important for patients taking these drugs.

Last year, the federal government made a move to cut reimbursements made to toxicology laboratories. This is expected to save the government over $3 billion in the next five years. Although this may make a positive impact to the federal government, it cannot be said the same about toxicology laboratories in the U.S. Like every other decision made, the move to cut the amount of money budgeted for the toxicology laboratories has both positive and negative impacts on them. Some of the impacts of these reimbursement cuts include:

Medicaid, on the other hand, is a program by the government that provides health insurance to cover people whose incomes are limited. The central government funds it in collaboration with the states.
