Consulting Firm Execs to Discuss Strategies for Effective Management of Specialty Drugs in AIS’s May 30 Webinar
Date:5/21/2013

Washington, DC (PRWEB) May 21, 2013

Two executives from human resources and pharmacy consulting firm Solid Benefits Guidance (SBG) will identify which strategies can be most effective to better manage costly specialty therapies while ensuring high-quality care to the members who are taking them, in an upcoming May 30 webinar from Atlantic Information Services, Inc., “How to Manage Specialty Drugs to Reduce Costs and Ensure Quality Care.”

Specialty pharmaceuticals are now the main driver for rising prescription drug costs, which are an ever-increasing component of health costs generally. With specialty spend expected to increase 50% by 2015, implementation of effective strategies is critical to address the challenge of sustaining affordable benefits for health plans and patients alike. But the effective management of specialty drugs may be easier said than done. Implementing comprehensive specialty management strategies requires a sound understanding of some of the unique dynamics of the specialty drug industry.

On May 30, two industry veterans —SBG’s Vice President Helen Sherman, R.Ph. Pharm.D., and Principal and Co-founder Bill Resnick, MBA —will discuss specialty pharmacy dynamics and strategies for managing this fast-changing, complex and increasingly costly arena. In a 60-minute expert presentation followed by a 30-minute question-and answer session, they will offer strategic guidance on these and related questions:

  • What are the components of a well-informed strategy to manage specialty drugs?
  • What are some of the most overlooked areas of specialty drug use and spend?
  • What strategies can be employed to optimize patient outcomes while still controlling specialty costs?
  • What are some of the new management tactics for specialty drugs that may grow in popularity among payers?
  • What steps can payers take to prepare for the enormous growth anticipated in the specialty drug space?
