News and Strategies for Managing High-Cost Specialty Products

Specialty Pharmacy News is a monthly newsletter that provides intelligence and strategies to help control costs and improve patient outcomes – with insights into benefit design tactics, specialty markets for certain conditions, formulary decisions, merger and acquisition activity, payer-provider partnerships, patient adherence strategies, and new products.

Specialty Pharmacy News is designed to help health plans, PBMs, providers and employers manage costs more aggressively and deliver specialty drugs more effectively. It covers topics like:

  • Management strategies for specialty drugs, including site-of-care optimization, quantity limits and formulary placement, and their impact on health plan costs, patient adherence and outcomes.
  • Analyses of merger and acquisition activity within the specialty pharmacy and home infusion markets, and the implications those deals have on other stakeholders within those markets.
  • The latest analyses of therapies, opportunities and management tactics for a range of specialty markets, including rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis, various cancers, hepatitis C, growth hormone deficiency, HIV/AIDS and Crohn’s disease.
  • Ways that health plans are managing specialty drugs across both the pharmacy and medical benefits — and making sure those approaches are aligned in terms of medication coverage.
  • The role of personalized medicine — including targeted therapies such as Herceptin, Erbitux, and Gleevec — and ways to improve patient outcomes and control costs through genetic testing.
  • The potential impact of biosimilars and steps payers can take to prepare for their entry into the U.S. marketplace.
  • Case studies of payer-provider partnerships in the specialty arena that increase efficiencies in cost and outcomes.
