Washington, DC (PRWEB) July 15, 2008
Atlantic Information Services, Inc., publisher of Specialty Pharmacy News and Drug Benefit News, is pleased to announce AISHealth.com's newest free report, Managing Cancer Care: Strategies to Improve Outcomes and Lower Costs. As health care costs continue to swell, one of the most costly -- and complicated -- kinds of health care expenses is oncology care. Such treatments cost about $200 billion annually, with costs growing each year. While manufacturers have made tremendous strides in treating various types of cancers and their side effects, these therapies come at a high price for payers. Go to http://www.aishealth.com/Products/freereports.html to download this free report.
This 145-page resource is filled with articles on recent developments from companies leading the way in oncology management -- including an extensive presentation from Aetna Specialty Pharmacy with facts, figures and program design details. This report also provides insight on the programs health plans and PBMs have put in place, and how payers are responding.
Managing Cancer Care: Strategies to Improve Outcomes and Lower Costs examines some of the management strategies and pricing methodologies that health plans have been instituting in hopes of reining in costs, as well as the federal government's role in reimbursement. Chapters include: Oncology Cost/Reimbursement Issues, Oncology Management Strategies and Oncology Market Report.
Against a backdrop of great emotional drain on patients and their families, these fast-changing business conditions are demanding that health plans devote increasing attention to oncology management. Managing Cancer Care paints a clear picture of the issues facing this market. To access a copy of this report, visit http://www.aishealth.com/Products/freereports.html.
