Resumen

RODRIGUEZ TORNE, Gonzalo et al. Clinical and economic impact of pharmaceutical interventions. Rev Cubana Farm [online]. 2011, vol.45, n.1, pp.50-59. ISSN 0034-7515.

A retrospective study was conducted from November 2008 to April 2009 in the unit-dose drug distribution system. The objective was to document the value of the pharmaceutical intervention both in descriptive and economic/efficiency data by using a program of therapeutic equivalences. The pharmaceutical interventions were grouped into dose/interval, substitutions, route of administration, interactions, allergies and others. Regarding the economic impact, the values of prices were derived from the drug purchase prices and the catalogue of pharmaceutical specialties. Two hundred ninety seven interventions were performed and distributed as follows: 50 dose / interval, 174 substitutions, 34 routes of administration, 25 interactions, 3 allergies and 11 of other types. Actual estimated savings amounted to 18 146.39 euros. The record of interventions is considered advantageous for the detection of priority problems and areas for action, in addition to being a useful tool to prove the cost-effectiveness of actions. Key words: Pharmaceutical intervention, clinical impact, economic impact.

Palabras clave : Pharmaceutical intervention; clinical impact; economic impact.
