Data and Patient Testimonies Drive Congress in Pharmacy Legislation
In this interview from the National Community Oncology Dispensing Association, Buddy Carter, Congressman (R-GA) explains that seeing data, and listening to patient testimonies, are two driving factors in implementing pharmacy legislation.
You know, our former Speaker of the House, Paul Ryan, had a poster in his office, and it said, “In God we trust, everybody else bring data.” It’s true, we love data in Congress, and we love it in government, because it’s one of the few things that we can point to, one of the few things that we can really rely upon. It’s so vitally important that you make sure that you keep up with all of this, and present it to us in such a way that we can see the real savings. Now, the value that it brings to patients, you know the testimonies that patients bring to us are so very important as well.
