  "Understanding that the fraction/percent of our patients’ healthcare outcomes attributed to what we directly do in the hospital and office settings is probably only 20% to 33%, we have to focus on the remaining drivers of healthcare outcomes."

-Peter Aran, M.D., medical director of population health for Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Oklahoma.
  “Prescriptions are a critical tool for treating chronically ill patients, who account for 91% of all prescriptions in the United States."

Excerpted from: Population Health News, Volume 4 Number 6, June 2017, Industry News: "Surescripts Dispensed Prescription Data Service Covers Nearly 240 Million."
