About the Express Scripts Drug Trend Report
Published annually since 1997, the Express Scripts Drug Trend Report provides the healthcare industry’s most detailed analysis of prescription drug costs and utilization. The 2011 Drug Trend Report initiated a web-based version to allow faster and easier access. Now, with the 2012 Drug Trend Report, we are updating data quarterly to allow more timely access to critical information.
Express Scripts pioneered the understanding of consumer behavior relative to healthcare benefits to develop practical, well-accepted programs that drive out waste while preserving individual choice. We combine this with clinical specialization to ensure the best possible care for patients and leverage actionable data to provide you with insights in the dynamic arena of prescription drug costs and utilization.
The Express Scripts Drug Trend Report is developed and published by The Express Scripts Research & New Solutions Lab with contributions from researchers, clinicians and many others across the organization.
