Drug monitoring and publications
The GIP information system is a powerful monitoring instrument for preparing and evaluating policy measures and forecasting costs and developments in consumption in the near future. It also can be used to estimate the extra costs of introducing new drugs into the reimbursement scheme, and to provide insurance organisations with detailed information about developments in the drug usage of their insured population in comparison with other organisations.
