Obesity, diabetes, NASH, NSCLC, SMA, hemophilia, sickle cell – what do these all have in common? High-impact, trend-driving treatments! Whether it be a costly 1-time dose for a small population, or a specialty treatment for a large population, these treatments likely have a high-impact on your organization and management strategies. Payers, patients, and manufacturers alike are struggling with the challenges of affordability and access to these high-impact, novel therapies.

This educational session and workshop will feature experts in managed care and innovative contracting who will holistically explore different strategies and mechanisms to put a price on uncertainty. Attendees will delve into the evolving trends of high-impact drugs and generate their own potential innovative contracting or value-based agreement solutions as they build their own “value house.” You don’t want to miss this highly engaging and interactive session!
