Health system specialty pharmacies have traditionally tracked the same operational metrics as independent and PBM-owned specialty pharmacies. However, while important, these metrics fall short in demonstrating how medically-integrated specialty pharmacy services improve clinical outcomes and lower the cost-of-care.
For this reason, leading health system specialty pharmacies have begun tracking disease-specific metrics and integrating them into clinical workflow. These data points help providers intervene more quickly to change patients’ therapy regimens when needed and drive adherence more effectively. They also support more productive engagement with industry stakeholders like health plans and pharmaceutical manufacturers.
During this webinar, health system pharmacy and physician leaders will share:
- How health system specialty pharmacies can create value for all stakeholders by measuring disease-specific clinical outcomes
- What steps your health system specialty pharmacy can take to build a strong disease-specific clinical outcomes program
- Examples of how health systems are leveraging disease-specific metrics to enhance patient care
The target audience for this activity includes pharmacists. At the completion of this activity, the participant will be able to:
- Explain why health systems must move beyond operational data points to prove their impact on patient outcomes and cost-of-care.
- List requirements for implementing a disease-specific outcomes program across specialties at their health system.
- Describe examples of how other health systems are tracking disease-specific metrics to improve patient outcomes.
- Recognize how starting a disease-specific outcomes program will enable their health system to build patient-centric partnerships with industry stakeholders.
