Founder and CEO
Jim Lewis, CEO of Lewis Pharmaceutical Information, Inc. resides in Kimball, TN. He has been a licensed pharmacist since 1970 and has worked as a hospital pharmacist for 32 years. He has a BS in Pharmacy from Samford University and a BS in Zoology from the University of Tennessee. His professional experience began as owner of a retail pharmacy in South Pittsburg, TN.
While working as a hospital pharmacist, Jim began looking for a program that would give easier access to medication information and allow him to deliver rapid analyses about drug interactions and dosages. Not finding anything approaching what he thought was needed, he created what is now the Comprehensive Medication Analysis program. His goal was better patient care. Cost savings from a sample of 21,000 hospital admissions was an astounding $2 million in medications alone, plus another $18 million in associated costs!
