About Richard Segal

Richard Segal, Ph.D., is a professor of Pharmaceutical Outcomes & Policy at the University of Florida College of Pharmacy and also holds a faculty appointment in the Department of Pharmacotherapy and Translational Research. His research interests focuses on improving the quality and safety of the medication use process, with a particular emphasis on improving prescribing practices and in creating collaborative practice models to improve medication use by patients.

Segal is widely recognized for his work in explaining why clinical practice is so often inconsistent with evidence-based best practices. His research in the area of changing prescribing behavior has been the basis of prescribing interventions throughout the world. Segal was Co-PI on the first major research project focused on training community pharmacists to identify and prevent drug related problems which contribute to preventable drug related morbidity called Therapeutic Outcomes Monitoring (TOM). Their research has helped to shape many medication therapy management interventions used by health plans in the United States and in other countries.
