Multi-Year Contract to Provide U.S. Drug Utilization Patterns Allows FDA to

Evaluate Unexpected Market Events

BRIDGEWATER, N.J., Nov. 3 /PRNewswire/ -- Wolters Kluwer Health, a leading provider of information and business intelligence for students, professionals and institutions in medicine, nursing, allied health, pharmacy and the pharmaceutical industry, today was awarded a multi-year contract to provide both prescription and patient-level data to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to provide the Agency with insight into the prevalence of prescription drug utilization within the U.S. population.
