Presentation – 2nd Annual Bio/Pharma Retail Summit – Discount

I’m excited to be presenting in the Fall with Adam Fein and lots of other great speakers at the 2nd Bio/Pharma Retail Strategy Summit to be held September 18-19 in Philadelphia, PA.  

I get to talk about one of my favorite topics which is how health reform is driving change in the industry and enabling new opportunities for the pharmacy / pharmacist.  

You get to listen to me for 90-minutes so I’m hoping to find some great examples, data, and insights to get you thinking hard about your business and the white space here.  I hope to see some of you there.  If interested, I’m passing on a discount code they offered to me as faculty.

Are You Going To The 2013 PBMI Conference?

Are you going to this year’s conference (February 18-20th) in Las Vegas? I’ll be presenting again this year, and I hope to see some of you there. If you’ll be there, let me know and we can connect.

This year, I’m going to talk about one of my favorite topics which is how the pharmacy industry needs to transform itself. This touches on several topics which I’ve blogged about multiple times:

  • Health reform and ACOs
  • Turning data into wisdom
  • Predictive models
  • Coordinating medical and pharmacy data
  • The role of the pharmacist in the broader care team strategy
  • Consumer engagement as fundamental to healthcare
  • Outcomes-based contracting
  • Population health management
  • Consumer experience

Do you have a specific example of how you see companies (pharma manufacturers, PBMs, or pharmacies) transforming from a traditional Fee-For-Service (FFS) model to an outcomes based model in terms of payment and how that is changing the way they do business? I’m always interested in learning more.

Here’s the official description from the brochure for the conference.

Pharmacy — Data, COEs, Predictive Models, and Consumer Engagement

George Van Antwerp, Vice President, Product Development, inVentiv Medical Management

Pharmacy is the most used benefit, and for most chronically ill patients, they take multiple medications per day and interact with their pharmacist/pharmacy frequently. With the transformation in healthcare to an outcomes-based focus, PBMs, pharmacies, and pharma are looking at new models and new ways to work with payers, providers, and patients to be part of the care team. We will explore how companies are using this data and technology to intervene, change behavior, and improve outcomes from a broader population health management perspective.
