Washington, DC (PRWEB) November 17, 2015
The pipeline for oncology drugs is the largest for any disease state in the fast-growing specialty pharmacy arena, with many of those drugs being oral therapies. But studies have shown that patient adherence with oral oncolytic regimens remains a challenge, particularly as patient cost sharing for these increasingly expensive drugs continues to rise, which results in drug waste and poorer clinical outcomes. The upcoming Dec. 1 webinar from Atlantic Information Services, Inc. (AIS), “Oral Oncology Drugs: Health Plan Strategies for a Dynamic Market,” will discuss the rapid growth of oral oncolytics, the impact they are having on the cost and efficacy of the delivery of health care, and strategies innovative health plans are developing to manage these therapies.
In 60 minutes of expert presentations followed by a 30-minute Q&A session, participants will hear from Gary Rice, vice president, clinical services for Diplomat Pharmacy, Inc., and Beckie Fenrick, a consultant with the Cambridge Advisory Group, where she leads their pharmacy practice, who will offer valuable perspectives on:
- What are the challenges of oral oncology management?
- What is the basis for transitioning to oral cancer care?
- What are the latest data available for oral oncology agents with a focus on outpatient and specialty practice?
- What strategies are top health plans employing to control the cost of oral oncolytics without compromising patient outcomes?
- What are supportive care requirements that help achieve a positive patient outcome?
