Report Shows Rising Drug Prices and Drug Shortages are Disrupting Hospitals

Continued rising drug prices, as well as shortages for many critical medications, are disrupting patient care and forcing hospitals to delay infrastructure and staffing investments and identify alternative therapies, according to a new report prepared by NORC at the University of Chicago for the American Hospital Association, Federation of American Hospitals and American Society of Health-System Pharmacists. In addition, the AHA released an infographic detailing key findings from the report and an animated video highlighting some of the challenges and the need to address the prescription drug crisis.
