Welcome to the New Lab Experience

Apr 8, 2014
The new Lab.Express-Scripts.com is an interactive, insights-fueled environment that provides weekly insights, drug trend analysis and other findings from our research, clinical and decision design teams.

A lot of great thinking happens at Express Scripts. Predictive analytics and our trend forecast models use complex data to see into the future, so we can better respond to changes in our industry and the drug trend ecosystem. And, with the field of innovation and digital technology moving at light speed, the future looks to be more integrated, interactive and in-depth.

With that in mind, we have re-engineered our online research experience, bringing together the data and reporting available on our Drug Trend Report website with the valuable insights from our research blog, Healthcare Insights from the Express Scripts Lab.

The new Lab.Express-Scripts.com is an interactive, insights-fueled environment that provides weekly insights, drug trend analysis and other findings from our research, clinical and decision design teams. The new format offers an innovative, cross-platform (desktop, tablet and mobile) experience to learn more about drug trend analytics, recent research publications and important healthcare industry insights.
