Data Rules! Strategies for Leveraging Data and Defining Value Based Care

Tuesday, April 30, 1:45 PM - 2:15 PM  |  Room: Mouton

As specialty drugs continue to dominate the market, payers and manufacturers are developing networks of specialty pharmacies to manage cost and obtain data. Basic reporting is not enough, and value must be defined. IHOC, a coalition formed by AmerisourceBergen, is hosting a panel with industry experts at Asembia Specialty Pharmacy Summit 2019 on Tuesday, April 30 to share how health system specialty pharmacies are uniquely positioned to provide coordinated care. This panel explores data needs from various stakeholders and how this impacts product uptake, access and patient outcomes.

Join these experts, where you will learn:

  • How data is driving and defining value-based contracting
  • Insights on the challenges and successes of devising metrics that drive outcomes
  • How a patient centered-model drives outcomes
