  • New drugs that will be fast-tracked through the FDA.
  • The future of the Biologics Price Competition and Innovation Act — the ACA’s biosimilars pathway — and how an ACA repeal would impact existing and future biosimilars.
  • Management strategies such as clinical pathways, site-of-care optimization, quantity limits and formulary placement ... and their impact on cost, adherence and outcomes.
  • The latest therapies and management tactics for hepatitis C, chronic myeloid leukemia, melanoma, hypercholesterolemia, rheumatoid arthritis, MS, HIV/AIDS, and more.
