PCV21 Pharmacoeconomic analysis of Sotalol Loading: Comparison of 1-day Inpatient Loading of IV Sotalol Compared to the Standard 3-Day Loading Protocol

Boston Strategic Partners and AltaThera present hospital cost savings by using a 1-day initiation regimen. Over 7,200 patients in the Cerner electronic health record system who were admitted to the hospital for initiation of oral sotalol were analyzed. By reducing 3-day sotalol initiation to a 1-day procedure, the cost-saving per patient is $2,900; a significant reduction in hospital costs. https://www.valueinhealthjournal.com/article/S1098-3015(19)30649-7/fulltext
