About AHFS DI Monographs

The U.S. Congress and various health care insurance providers have also recognized the authority of the AHFS DI information on the medically accepted uses of drugs. AHFS DI has been listed by the American College of Physicians-American Society of Internal Medicine as a standard item for inclusion in reference libraries and has been a required drug reference for pharmacies in most states. The publication’s longstanding policy of editorial independence from the influence of pharmaceutical manufacturers, health insurers, pharmacy benefit managers, and other third parties has been formalized in an official statement approved by the ASHP Board of Directors.

Monographs include the recommendations of numerous authorities, including the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the American Heart Association, the Institute of Medicine of the National Academies, the Women’s Health Initiative and many others. The publication also features major cautionary information from FDA MedWatch notices as well as new and updated scientific findings.
