The Medication Safety and Efficacy Center focuses on increasing drug safety and effectiveness, as well as decreasing medication errors by identifying the incidence and significance of adverse drug events that occur with prescription and non-prescription drugs. This data will be provided to hospitals, pharmaceutical companies, insurance companies, and governmental agencies such as Medicaid and Medicare for use in epidemiological and economic studies and will help lead to fewer drug injuries and improved drug effectiveness.
