Abstract:
The recent GABI Journal manuscript by Bertolani and Jommi comprehensively assessed the implications of a range of policies including education, benchmarking, and financial incentives, implemented by the different healthcare organisations (HCOs) among the regions in Italy to increase the use of biosimilars as a way to conserve resources. This included both prospective and retrospective analyses of shifts in prescribing behaviour among the different regions and potential savings generated as well as how the savings generated were used [1].
