The UW Health Clinic Administered Medications Committee was established to implement, monitor and promote safe, rational and cost-effective medication use for medications that are administered in a clinic setting. Medications that are included in this program have a significant impact on the UW Health system and patients.The committee was created as a forum for discussing these medications.

All medications administered in a UW Health affiliated clinic or facility will be acquired and dispensed from a UW Health pharmacy to ensure product integrity. Medications that are included in the internal pharmacy prior authorization policy are those designated by the committee. The clinical criteria used for evaluating the medication use have been developed by experts in the UW Health system and approved by the UW Health Pharmacy and Therapeutics Committee. Typically, medications that have an estimated cost of $5,000 or greater per patient per course would be included under this policy in addition to medications that have safety concerns as noted by an FDA-mandated Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS) program, those that are not on the formulary, or those with a risk of inappropriate use.
